🥊 Tap Out Excerpt 🥊

The Coven is real

YOU KNOW YOU WANNA (Becky): OMG is this real life or are we in one of your dreams right now?

ALPHABET SOUP (Rocky): IDK but if this is a dream DO NOT WAKE ME UP!

ALPHABET SOUP: *GIF of smashing an alarm clock*

YOU KNOW YOU WANNA: In the immortal words of Michelle Tanner. You got it Dude!

YOU KNOW YOU WANNA: *GIF of Michelle Tanner giving a thumbs up*

ALPHABET SOUP: This is why I love you so!! *kissy face emoji*

YOU KNOW YOU WANNA: Seriously though. You HAVE to go for it…how many people get their celebrity crush put in front of them for the taking?

ALPHABET SOUP: Maybe I will *winky face emoji*

YOU KNOW YOU WANNA: NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Looping in the rest of The Coven.

The rest of the girls would definitely have opinions. She may have said in the past that she would make a move on Gage if she ever had the chance, but in her heart of hearts, she knew she wouldn’t. Besides, she’d thought she had a billion in one chance of ever meeting the guy. He was a fighter, so he would never be more than a celebrity crush. Unavailable crushes were safer than dudes in real life.

YOU KNOW YOU WANNA: You guys are NEVER going to believe who the newest fighter to join The Steele Maker is

QUEEN OF SMUT (Maddey): Enough with the cliffhanger. I’m on deadline here Beck

PROTEIN PRINCESS (Gemma): Seriously. You are the WORST with this sometimes

MAKES BOYS CRY (Skye): Don’t make me come down there

MOTHER OF DRAGONS (Jordan): Seriously, spit it out before the twins wake up from their current milk comas

MOTHER OF DRAGONS: And Skye, you’re on the West Coast, don’t make idle threats

PROTEIN PRINCESS: Rock, you’re with her. Make her tell us ALREADY

ALPHABET SOUP: *GIF of Mariah Carey dramatically putting on sunglasses saying “No Comment”*

YOU KNOW YOU WANNA: Pff… It’s about her…she’s not going to say anything. But fine I’ll put you guys out of your misery…

QUEEN OF SMUT: I swear to god Beck, I will sick my editor on you when I miss my deadline because I left my writing chair at Espresso Patronum to strangle you

YOU KNOW YOU WANNA: Such a flare for dramatics. It’s obvious you live in a world of fiction. Anyway… 

YOU KNOW YOU WANNA: The newest fighter to be trained here at The Steele Maker…






QUEEN OF SMUT: Also…am I the only one who’s noticed Rock has been suspiciously quiet through all this

MOTHER OF DRAGONS: Hurry up before I have to parent again…


YOU KNOW YOU WANNA: GAGE JAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There was a long pause while everyone processed that, followed by a barrage of text messages tripping over each other to be the first to ping through.


MOTHER OF DRAGONS: Like the current UFC Heavyweight title holder Gage James?

MAKES BOYS CRY: You mean like this fine hunk of man meat?

MAKES BOYS CRY: *GIF of Gage flexing in only his tiny fighting shorts*

QUEEN OF SMUT: OMG total hero inspiration

QUEEN OF SMUT: Oh shit. I think I saw him at EP with Papa Steele this morning

YOU KNOW YOU WANNA: Look I know he’s hot. Like melt your panties, take me back to your lair and do whatever you want to me hot. But that is not the most important thing here people

PROTEIN PRINCESS: Because we all know we’ll be here until tomorrow if we wait for Beck to FINALLY get to the point, I’ll make it for her

PROTEIN PRINCESS: Rocky has a huge lady boner for him.
