Image

Personality

Beau is calm fellow, He doesn’t anger easily unless his baby girl is involved. He is highly protective of her as her lost her mother -his wife- when she was 2 months old. He is a trigger happy fellow as well, and isn’t afraid to shoot anyone which makes him perfect for the position of the Sgt at Arms. He is highly observant and can read people like a book. A skill he’s passed on to his daughter.

Equipment

Beau owns many a weapon but his favored is a double barreled shotgun to which he named his daugter after. Lola.

History

Beau was in the war with Deacon Walker and after a few tours with him, he and Deacon became close. So When Deacon created his MC, Beau was one of the first to join. He was given the role as both Road Captain and Sgrt at Arms due to his knowledge of geography and his ability to handle a gun. Once, when the KOA began to spread, Beau was at the forefront of it all. He scoped out all of the places that the KOA would and should be, and owns places in each region, including, KOA Russian, KOA London, and KOA Mexcio. During his time in Mexico he met a beautiful Latina lounge singer, named Aria Martinez, He fell in love with her smile and her ability to dance. They fell and love and were married.Image
They were happily married for years and soon Aria was pregnant with their baby girl, Lola and they were happy still until two monthes after her birth, As Beau and Aria were out at a bar. One of the KOA’s enemies, shot up the bar. Aria unfortunately did not make it out alive.
Beau was left to raise his babygirl alone or so he thought, as Deacon Walker’s wife. Nickie, decided she’d help raise the girl, having a only a baby boy. Beau was more than grateful to Nickie. So whenever he and Deacon needed to go ‘work’ Lola would stay with Nickie and baby Jason.
After a while, as Lola grew up, He began teaching her the things he knew. Like Hunting, and he found out she was a child prodigy when it came to a weapon. Chess, so that she could learn to antiapate a person’s moves, and who to read people. Living in LA helped as everyone lied. But As Lola needed some other outlet so he put her in gymnastics and she became quite good at it.

So begins...

"Oh, I can't wait to see everyone!" Lola Martinez squealed from the passager side of her father's Truck. "It's only been 3 months, Lolly" said Beauregard Duncan said with his eyes on the road. "I know but still. I have all these gifts an' stuff from all the places we've been." chirped the pretty afro-latina. She wasn't slow, she knew it wasn't a normal vacation. They'd visited every place the KOA was in Europe but whatever. She got to spend some much needed Daddy-Daughter time with her father. Something they hardly did. She was glad for it and while she was a little upset that it was only possible because of work,but since he was usually gone because of work, she was content. Unfortunately, she was starting 9th grade and had only two weeks to prepared for that.

"Okay so what all did I get for everyone?" Lolly asked herself as she stood in her pink and green bedroom of their two-story home. She took the boxes out of her bags and set them of her bed. "Messenger bag from Madrid for Ria." She said and set the bag to the side. "Bandanna for Merc from London." She set that to the side. "Shark tooth Necklace for Jason also from Madrid." She said, with a small smile. She hoped he liked it. She knew it was so very surfer not biker but when she saw it she thought of him so she couldn't resist. "Earrings from Mexico for Nickie and Trucker hat from Texas for Deacon." She said and smiled. She ran downstairs with a smile but it faded when she saw her Daddy putting on his cut. "Daddy?" She asked. He wasn't supposed to go to work just yet. "Wh-what about dinner?" She asked, trying and failing to hid the disappointment from her face. "I know, I have to head to the clubhouse for a bit. I'll see you when I get home.""We just got home." Lolly said, her eyebrow creased with a sad frown. "I know, Baby girl but I have to work." He said and kissed her forehead. She blinked black curly hair from her eyes. She knew there was no arguing with him. He was always working. She didn't know why she expected that to change. It was her own fault, having spent 3 months just him and her, she'd gotten use to it. He only worked when she was asleep. They both pretended it was a actual vacation and he spoiled her every stop so it worked.
She sighed. "Alright. I love you, Daddy." She said and he nodded. "I love you too, Baby girl, Don't wait up." He said and disappeared out the door. "Do I ever..."

After Lolly bagged up her gifts and made her way out the door. She wondered if they'd recognize her. She'd grown a little taller. She was 5'4 so it wasn't much, She'd started coming into her womanly figure as well, she wasn't the skinny little kid, she was when she left. She had her braces removed right before they'd headed out, she still had a retainer but it couldn't be seen. She wasn't blind. She knew she had a body now. One that got her some attention when she was in Madrid. She then realized Maybe they really wouldn't recognized me She thought with a cheeky grin.
She liked the idea of surprising them, somewhere in the back of her mind, she hoped Jason would noticed.

After few blocks. Lolly saw a group of guys, one of them was extremely tall blonde. She cocked her head confused. They were crowded around bikes that she was sure belonged to her friends but they weren't that tall before. More specifically Jason. They were almost the same height when she left, he was slightly taller. It was then she heard his laugh and knew right away it was him. She walked up to them, pressed a finger to her lips after setting down her bags when she saw Nicky and Merc, who gave her a look she'd never gotten from them before. She ignored it as she rose to her tip-toes and covered Jason's eyes. She giggled, her curly hair falling over her shoulders. "Guess who." She sang happily, having a hard time keeping her hands over his eyes as he was much taller then her now.

Jason had been in the garage for awhile on his own, he was somewhat calmed down now. He headed out to grab a drink when he heard Ria's voice on the other side of the door, she was talking with Red. Jason didn't really need anymore drama so he just figured he'd wait till they were gone. He heard Ria tell Red that she was going to Ireland till school, and the fight she had with Lolly over everything with Jason. He heard Ria start mentioning some of the things she told Lolly and some of the names she called Lolly, as Jason's anger was rising up again, it was true that nobody except maybe Beau was more protective of Lolly than Jason, and hearing Ria say these things was about to send him over the edge again. Red kept trying to calm Ria down, but she continued with the verbal bashing of Lolly...and that was it.

Jason literally kicked the door open making both Red and Ria jump. "Get the fuck out of here right now!" Jason snapped, Ria may have been furious herself but she'd also never seen Jason look the way he did right then either. "We were just talking Jason..." Red said trying to calm the situation, "last time I checked she didn't have a fucking patch and she's no Mama either...so get the fuck out" Jason snapped again.

That's when a prospect popped his head in, seeing Jason yelling at Ria and Red he decided he needed to step in. "Hey listen, just cause your dad is the Pres doesn't mean you own this place" the Prospect said. He was in his late thirties, he was stocky and solid with rather large arms and the typical biker beard. "Hey listen, this is just a private conversation okay" Red said, as she seemed to be the only one in the room who saw the warning signs flaring up, she saw Jason as being just like Deacon and they had the same tell-tale tells that they were nearing the danger zone, and Jason was clearly on his way there. "Listen this guy gets fast tracked in cause he banged some slut..." he never got to finish the sentence. The prospect outweighed Jason by a lot, and definitely was bigger than the teen...but Jason was a Walker and that made up for any disadvantage. Jason punched the prospect in the jaw staggering him backwards. The Prospect regained his feet and charged Jason, tackling him to the floor, but no sooner had they hit the floor, Jason had flipped over and managed to get ontop of the the prospect, and immediately started raining down shots to the prospect's face, first with his fists then switching to his elbows.

Jason was finally pulled back, he looked back and saw Beau being the one who pulled him back. The prospect was bleeding pretty badly as he slowly got to his feet. "Thanks Beau....this fucking kid's got a bit too big for his brtiches" the prospect said, not realizing Beau had been there a bit longer than just the fight. "What did you call my daughter?" Beau asked in an icy cold tone, Jason just grinned "fuck man if he was willing to shoot me....you're fucking dead" Jason said laughing. Beau just stared at the prospect, "running would be a smart move right now asshole" Jason said, the prospect realizing his major mistake took Jason's advice and disappeared. Beau just gave Jason a slap on the back as he walked into the garage.

Jason then saw Ria still standing there, "So you think I'm just some mindless dumbass is that it?" he said turning towards Ria, his eyes still burning. "That's what everyone thinks right? I can't think for myself is that it, some girl smiles at me or kisses me and I just do whatever she asks....WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK I AM!!" Jason practically screamed...it was enough to even start scaring Red, let alone Ria. "NOBODY FUCKING MAKES ME DO ANYTHING", things were red-lining for Jason at that point, "I wasn't baited, I wasn't seduced, lured or any of that bullshit! I knew exactly what the fuck I was doing...Lolly didn't make me do anything I didn't want" he glared at Ria, "and thanks...for awhile I was actually feeling bad about hurting you like that...but all this, what you said about Lolly and the gun in her face....and oh yeah, the fact that your anger towards Lolly was more important to you than sticking around the hospital to see if I actually lived or died...well thanks, I don't feel nearly as bad....cause I promise you this...right now if you were a guy....you wouldn't be walking out of here!" Jason punched the wall beside him, making a hole, he then stormed out into the parking lot. Jason was like an exposed nerve and pretty much any contact he made with people was just aggravating him further.

As Jason stormed out Red quickly grabbed her phone, there was only one person left who could pull Jason back from the edge he was on right now. She found Nickie's number and sent her an urgent text.

Lolly made her way home. She checked to see if her nose was broken and thankfully it wasn't but her face was brusied up pretty nice. She iced her face and decided she just wanted to sleep. She climbed into bed and dispite her nose still bleeding, she could still smell Jason all over her sheets. She sobbed into her pillow. She wanted to talk to Jason but she knew it would only end in more yelling from him and more crying for her. Now, all she wanted was to have Jason back on her side. She wanted her best friend back. Both of them. Ria would never forgive her. She wanted to be angry still for her calling Jason a Community guy. It was something they called guys who fucked just about anybody. They were like a community pools. 'Open to the public.' It was funny then but now. It pissed her off yet she could only get but so mad. Ria wouldn't have said that if things hadn't gone down the way they did. With that, Lolly ended up crying herself to sleep.



Beau watched as some stupid Prospect called his daughter q slut in front of Jason. Jason was already on egde, He saw that so Beau didn't even bother stopping him until Jason got hit. Beau decided it was his turn so He grabbed the kid up. It was like pulling back a pitbull, Dangerous and only a few men had the balls to do it. Jason looked up at him and saw that it was in fact Beau that did it and seemed to be able to calm him some. Beau glared as the prospect spoke and Jason instigated. Beau was a big man, easily 7ft and though he looked big, it was all muscle. He was not a man to be triffled with as that prospect would find out later. Beau would deal with him later but for now. He had to keep Jason from killing someone. He gave the kid a pat on the back and decided that he'd go check on Lolly. When he got home, he went up to her room and peeked in. She was sleeping but she kept heaving every so often, the way she did when she cried. He didn't know what happened between her an Jason but it wasn't good. That girl never cried this hard. Only one person has done that and unfortunately it was him.


Ria was actually terrified as Jason screamed at her. She wasn't Lolly, who wasn't afriad to yell back at Jason. She jumped hard when he punched the wall and took off. She clapped a hand over her mouth, trembling. She decided enough was enough. "I-I gotta go. My flight leaves tonight."She said to Red as Red frantically dailed on her phone. Ria almost ran home, she was so scared. She didn't know how Lolly did it. How she could handle that.


Nickie was over at the garage almost immediately. "What the hell is wrong with you, Screaming at Ria like that?"

Jason sat there with his arm around Ria, he wanted more than anything to go back to Ireland, he wanted revive Matthias and make him really pay for what had happened. But he couldn't, so the only person left was whoever leaked him the information, whoever that person is...or was...they were going to pay, Jason could feel for Beau, but Lolly was close to him too, he could understand Beau wanting payback but if he wanted the traitor he was going to have to beat Jason to him...hell Beau had shot him with a shotgun at point blank, so he owed him one anyway.

Deacon walked over and sat down beside Beau, he could see Beau shutting down. "She's a fighter brother, just like her dad, if any kid could make it through this, it's gonna be her" Deacon said with arm around Beau's shoulder. It was a rare sight to see these guys showing emotion like this, but this was one of those rare occasions where the bond of the brotherhood really showed through. There were even members from KOA London at the hospital, they had no involvement or part of the incident, even though some of them probably had no clue who Lolly was...she was family.

--------------------

Back in Los Angeles Jimmy had called an open church meeting, this meant even prospects and Mama's were allowed in, something that rarely ever happened. With Deacon gone, Jimmy was the acting one in charge.

"You've all heard about Lola, I know everyone here is feeling for her and Beau....well almost everyone" he said as a murmur went through the group. "The asshole who did this had info on Lolly, info there is no fucking way he could have gotten on his own, info that could only have come from this clubhouse" Jimmy said, he was far from the reserved one, and he was doing everything he could to hold his anger in right now. "Somebody in this room sold her out, sold out Beau's little girl...the only family he's got left", the room went silent as all eyes were on Jimmy. "To whoever it was...if you haven't figured it out yet....you're fucking dead" Jimmy said coldly. "But this club respects honor....whoever it is....man up....admit it, own your actions.....and whatever your ending is, I promise you it'll be much easier than if we gotta find you ourselves....cause we will find you, I fucking promise you that" Jimmy said as he scanned the group. Members were looking around at each other, the un-asked question was who would have done it. "I understand admitting it right now would probably get you killed on the spot by everyone in this room....so when we're done here, everyone go home...I'll be in my office....you want to prove you still got balls, you'll know where I'll be..." Jimmy slammed the gavel down "We're dismissed"

Beau looked at Deacon. He let out a shaky breath and stared off into oblivion. He wanted to scream. He wanted to break something, He wanted desperately to take her place but it would do no good. That's what was driving him insane. He had to sit there. Beau ws a man of action yet he had to sit and wait.

After a long while, Deacon got up after getting a phone call from Jimmy as one of the KOA London members. Danny Boy, approached Beau. He was in his late 20's, Deep black hair. He placed a hand on Beau shoulder. "Alright then, Mate?" He said softly. Beau looked up. "Hey." he said, his voice was low. DannyBoy and a few others met Lolly over the summer. Beau made it a point to show off his daughter's bike knowledge by having her take apart Danny Boy's bike and put it back together. It worked better then it did when he got it. They all loved, respected and slightly feared the kid after that. "Ya'know. She said if I messed up my bike again, she'd throttle me. Well bloodyhell, if I didn't wipe out the week after you left. I thought. That kid's gonna fuckin pop me off." He said and Beau looked up with a small hardly audible chuckle. Dannyboy was a jokester. He was always good for a laugh even at his own expense. "I guess I'd better git while the gettings good cause when she wakes up-"


It was then that the doctor came rushing out. Everyone was on egde. Beau shot up. She looked scared. "She had another seizure but she's stable now." She said quickly. " We hoped that if we kept her stable long enough, the drug would run it's course, so long as we treated the symptoms. However, we found that the drug administered twice. She had a much heavier dosage then we first though. One was in her stomach, Then other in her bloodstream." She said. "We've pumped her stomach but it's still heavy in ger blood so she will need a blood transfusion." She said and Beau nodded. "Alright. Then do it." He said but she looked down. "Lola has a rare blood type. B negative. It's rare here and in the US. We've checked with other hosptials and having some rushed in but the supply is limited. We aren't sure if it'll be enough." She said. "This is a shot in that dark, I know but do you know of anyone with that type. You maybe?" She asked. He shook his head. "A-" He said. "Her Mother? " That hit Beau like a bus. "Her mother is dead..." He said. The doctor bit her lip. She hadn't even had time to consider as there was no crying woman in the waiting room. Just alot of men and a boy and girl. "I'm so sorry. We'll do what we can. See if maybe we can check with other hospitals." She said and rushed off.

Beau walked back in the waiting room. "She needs a blood transfusion but her blood type is rare for the UK. For the U.S too apparently..." He said and that was it. He couldn't state the obvious. Everyone in the room knew what was happening. Without the transfusion. Lolly would die.

Beau sat back against the seat. His hand covering his face, trying to think. His mind went to some strange places as he wondered who he could bleed. He wondered darkly if Mathias was a B-. He hadn't been dead that long.

Suddenly, Ria's voice broke him from his thoughts. "Um. What's her blood type?" She asked with a sniff. Her eyes were puffy and red. "B-" Beau said softly. Ria looked around to the group. The members looked at one another. "I don't even know mine..." Dannyboy said softly. Beau though he was hurting, he felt grateful as everyone asked about their blood types. They all were willing to give up their blood to save his daughter.

It was then Deacon walked in finished with his phone call and asked about the progress. Ria spoke before Beau did. "Lolly has a rare blood type. None of us have it." She said softly.

After a long wait, the doctor came out, her face was grim. Beau looked up. "There was a hospital that had B- but it'll take a day or so to arrive." She said and it was then Deacon spoke up saying something about his blood type being B-. The doctor looked hopeful. Beau looked up almost as if he was gonna say no. Deacon shoot him a look saying something about sitting down and shutting up. He wasn't doing it for him he was doing it for the kid.

Deacon went with the doctor- Dr. Douglas and then it was more waiting.

Finally after what seemed like forever, Dr. Douglas returned. "The transfusion was a success." She said and Beau sighed and started for the room. Dr. Douglas raised her hands. "She's still in a coma." She said and Beau looked confused. "How?"
"We-we never really sure when a person comes out of it. It could take days...weeks...years even. It's up to her." She said grimly. Beau sighed. "When can I see my daughter?" He asked, trying to keep the frustration from his voice. "Soon." Dr. Douglas assured him.

Days had gone by and Lolly still hadn't woken up. After a while, Everyone was able to come visit her. Ria walked in as Beau sat beside Lolly in a chair beside her bed. Ria looked at Lolly's face. It was strange to see Lolly so still. Lolly could never sit still, she hated it. She moved more in her sleep. As Ria drew closer, she noticed how pretty Lolly was. It was an odd thought but she looked so peaceful, where ever she was, Ria hoped it was as peaceful as she looked. She looked at Beau. "I'd been talking to Dr. Douglas." She said softly. "She said that, it sometimes, it helps to talk..." She said. Ria had been learning all she could from the doctor about coma care. She wanted desperately to wake Lolly up. "She told me." Beau said softly, Ria noticed, Beau's hand on Lolly's. Her heart broke for him. Ria took a seat on the other side of Lolly, looking at her. She hated that she'd had to be hooked up to all of those tubes and monitors. Thankfully, She'd been breathing on her own and her heart was at it's normal pace. Now she just had the IV hooked to her arm. She smiled some. Lolly would tease her now. Ria hated needles, she'd pick on her about it when they were younger. "You know. She'd pick on me right now." She said and Beau looked up. "I hate needles. Lolly, who fears nothing, would pick on me any chance she got." Ria said with a light laugh. Beau gave a small grin. "Like the one time, we were watching Nightmare of Elm Street: Dream Warriors. I screamed when Freddy had the needles for fingers. She laughed at me so hard." Ria said and laughed at the memory. "I remember. I came home about that time." He said recalling hearing Ria scream. If it weren't for Lolly's boisterous laugh, he'da thought something was wrong. He'd give anything to hear that laugh about now.
"I'll be taking her home soon." he said and Ria looked up then nodded. Lolly would need a nurse and Ria was more than willing to do it. She wasn't certified but there was a midwifery program at her school in Ireland that was acing. She figured she could apply those skills to helping Lolly. She was going to back to LA.
It was funny, It was Lolly that made her want to leave and it was Lolly that made her want to come back.


A Month had gone by and Lolly hadn't changed. Beau had her brought back to LA. Deacon had made it his main focus to find whoever this rat was -As did Jason but that was a given-

Everyone had came to see Lolly. Talk to her, bringing her gifts and what not while Ria gave them instructions on it. Ria kept at Lolly's side, she was her nurse of sorts. She would call Dr. Douglas every so often for guidance.

Ria sat with Lolly, having just finished checking her vitals and what not when she noticed some. Everyone had come to visit Lolly, Nickie, Beau -of course-, Nicky, Merc, her friends from her gymnastics team, Hell even Jimmy and Deacon. They were talk to her though Jimmy didn't talk long. They weren't particularly close, neither was her and Deacon but it seemed that after the transfusion. Deacon seemed to have a bit of a bond with Lolly. Even if she weren't conscious to feel it. The strange thing was, everyone but Jason had come to visit. Which Ria thought was odd. Lolly and Jason where like Batman and Robin. Well more like Bonnie and Clyde, they were inseparable -literally- in some cases as she found out last summer. So why hadn't he come to see her?

One day. Ria approached him about it. "You know. She'd been ticked if you didn't come to see her?" Ria said to him. He said something about being busy and that he hadn't found the time as he was looking for the rat. Had that been Lolly she would have seen right through that lie and bitch slapped the mess out of him. Ria nodded. "Okay." She said and was about to go back to Lolly's house. She'd been practically staying there since Lolly's been out He went on about not wanting to see Lolly like that, venting a bit. Ria nodded."I get it but maybe it'll help."
