"A kiss on the cheek?" She questioned with a chuckle, she felt it die at the thought of meeting them more. He deserved a stable life and she didn't have that, doing what Mason would want felt important. "I guess we'll see. She asked to play outside last time but it was a little rainy, want to go outside?"
"I did make that promise," she nodded to him placing a hand on his arm before Ava took her hand leading her to the backdoor.
Kane kissed her back, "Wow... I like these kinds of hellos." He said seeing her with Ava, "So she can go? I hope he likes her, I mean play dates could happen and Ava needs a friend." He suggested and kissed them both. Ava loved Iris so there was no denying that she would like Iris' son without a doubt. "Are you staying tonight?" he asked Iris when she put Ava down.
"I figure it's down to pizza, sports and sex. Not too far from other guys," Iris smirked to him. Awkwardness aside it still felt comfortable with him. Walking to Kenny, she greeted a few of the other people. She didn't typically shine in groups but she enjoyed this gathering. Meeting the other artists and their families.
Staying good to her words she came over around dinner with intentions of playing with Ava as well.
"Hey," she kissed his cheek before entering. Seeing Ava run toward her she smiled picking her up. After playing with Ava today seeped into her. "Tomorrow is all clear with Ava, she sent the address of the park."
Kane modded, “Uou know how to get me to do things don’t you?” He asked with a smile. “Come by and never leave please.” He muttered. He wanted her to date him, he loved her but she kept shutting him down...what girl did that? He had a daughter...so...he still loved Iris even though it was a constant struggle to get her to like him the same way that he liked her.
"Kane..." Iris said lightly about the kiss but glanced around, attempting to withdraw from him without looking too guilty. "I'm not going to ask what you mean by owing. This will do you good. The other artists, Kenny, and letting Eva play with the others. You shouldn't shut yourself away."
Watching Eva play she smiled to him before squeezing his arm. "Let's go talk to the others and I might consider stopping by tonight," she smirked to him, knowing the meaning would be clear.
Kane hugged her, "You set me up to get me here." he said before stealing a kiss on her temple. Ava was playing on the swing set with the other kids at the bbq and Kane had an eye on her all of the time. He stood beside Iris, "You owe me now you know... Kenny is never going to let me live this down." He muttered looking to her seriously. "I avoid shit like this at all costs."
"You got him here! This is the first time he's came to one of my barbeques," Kenny clapped her back smiling proudly. "You are my lucky charm."
Iris beamed at Kenny before giving Kane a somewhat awkward hug. "Hey, thanks for coming. I've got some great news. I'm starting classes next month, some online and some in class, I'm exctied. Even mom is proud of me."
She stepped back checking her phone to see what Cheryl said about Eva. There was a two year age difference between the kids, but Mason loved younger kids apparantly.
Kane has showed up a little before she did and Ava was playing with some other kids, swinging on a swing set but Kane still kept an eye on the little girl. “Hey darlin.” Kane muttered seeing Iris arrive. She had insisted he be here so he assumed this was a date...or at least the start of something between them that wouldn’t be so hidden. He loved her.
"I'll ask his real parents, I don't think they'll mind at all. So, I'll see you next Saturday for the barbeque and that's not a request. I'll be bringing something as well," she said going to her car. Placing her bluetooth on she could continue to talk while finishing the groceries.
She brought a strawberry shortcake that her dad had brought with him from the times in New Orleans, after a week confined to an office it felt amazing to be out. Greeting the others from the band and a few other artist that Kenny covered too. the idea of Kane made her nervous.
Kane nodded, "I'll go with you to meet Mason, should I bring Ava? I mean... I can have Ryan's wife watch her, its your call darlin... hes your son." Kane didn't want to cross any lines but this would be her first time seeing him in years and he didn't want to upset the little boy... he was worried he might think that he was his dad.... not that he would have minded.
"Your manager likes you otherwise he wouldn't keep you on. Next Saturday is the barbeque and Sunday I'm meeting Mason and his parents at a park in Memphis. That is if your still interested in going," she said into the phone. Standing up, she gathered her items to go to the store.
Today har been productive but she missed the time with him. Maybe planning the next batch of tours and events would help out.
"I'll pay for your classes, I make the final decisions in all of this." He muttered sighing, "I wasn't invited to the barbeque, he doesn't exactly like me... I don't think... I mean I didn't get invited so thats what I'm assuming." He said and sighed again. "Just think over my offer... I miss you." Ava was watching cartoons with Rambo and Kane glanced in to check on her.
"Doesn't that require a degree? I'm looking into classes as we speak," she said into the phone. Her apartment and clothes were done, she just needed to get some groceries. "Kenny is having a 4th of July barbeque next Saturday, are you coming?"
In her mind she knew there had to be something that could be done without losing her private life and keep him in her Ife.
That night Kane didn't sleep much, he tossed and turned and couldn't get Iris off of his mind. The next day he called her, "What do I have to offer you to be my manager and assistant, full time?" He asked seriously. He didn't want her to have to struggle and worry about the safety of her job but he also didn't want to lose her just because he was in love with her... fuck he was in love.
Biting her lip she looked to him before sighing. This could prove interesting. She rubbed her neck before hearing the loud laughter outside.
"You know the answer to that, Kane. I'm sorry. I don't know if I could keep my job if anything else went public and then i couldn't afford school. I better hurry up before they throw up in my car." Iris kissed his cheek before dashing out. Threatening if they threw up.
Maybe her rash decision was not paying off as she collapsed into her bed tiredly.
