Adventures of a Bad Boy With Callum Hughes from HIS KIND OF TROUBLE
Hello there, my name is Callum Hughes. Though originally from the UK, I spent my life kicking around the globe, seeing new places and falling in love along the way. Mostly with vintage European sports cars, though trust me, women didn’t escape my notice. Have you ever been to Rio during Carnival? Quite an experience, to say the least. The ladies, the parties…well, decadent is one word for it.
Anyway, I’ve developed something of a reputation as a car restoration expert, but really, I just love bringing these works of art back to their former automotive glory. I take pride in my work, but I find it hard to stay in one place for long. Unless I’m obsessing over something like a ’54 Alfa Romeo B.A.T., I enjoy traveling. A lot.
But now that I’m back in Vegas, I’m finding it rather difficult to leave. Mainly because Monica Campbell lives here. I met her once before, years ago. She looked like an angel and kissed like a sinner. Who wouldn’t love that combination? But when we met up again, she was quite altered, different in every way, at least on the outside. Nevertheless, I could sense undercurrents of something uninhibited buried deep inside her, yearning to get out. Those stodgy suits and tamed curls don’t fit her at all. She’s a sex kitten, pure and simple. Therefore, it’s my goal—no, my duty—to tempt her out of this drab shell she’s donned like a shield, and encourage her to reform to her wild ways.
Every time we’re together, there’s a deep sexual tension bubbling between us. And when we touch—well, it sounds stupid—but it’s electric and a bit overwhelming. When she’s in the room, I don’t notice anything, anyone except her. Believe me, I know I sound like a tosser right now, but I can’t help it. Only she does this to me. If it weren’t so exciting, I’d be quite vexed. I like living my life with no strings, no attachments. The woman entices me to put aside my wandering ways, or at least take her with me on my jaunts through Europe and South America.
As for Monica, she likes to pretend she doesn’t notice me, but she gives herself away every time. She can hardly keep her eyes off me, and the way she stares at my tattoo, as though she wants to examine it further, feel it with her fingertips—I must admit, I find it charming. But she keeps fighting this mutual attraction. However, that doesn’t prevent her from sneaking away with me for a quick snog in a supply closet. No, she likes it when I kiss her, when I tempt her. Until she remembers she’s supposed to be a saint. I’m doing my utmost to help her forget all that.
Yet it’s when I talk about my travels that Monica becomes quiet and serious. Then she bombards me with questions about Italy and Spain and Thailand. She’s curious and clever and meant for bigger things than hiding behind a good girl persona. My goal is to make her realize that for herself. If she wants the world, I’ll give it to her. How can I possibly say no to the very complicated, beautiful Monica Campbell?
Q&A Session with Callum:
Since Monica seems to have taken all your time, can you tell us about a few of your ‘bad boy’ friends?
Most of my mates are back in London. Monica calls them “gearheads” while I call them artists. My garage restores vintage European sports cars. Most of the lads who work for me aren’t exactly…refined.
What kinds of shenanigans did you get up to with them before you were in a relationship?
Well, I never stayed in one place for long, so I didn’t get serious with women. Most didn’t like the fact that I’d rather work on a car or go to Peru on a whim. Women expect you to include them in decisions like that, but that was never my style. I wouldn’t consider myself a love them and leave them type, but I supposed that’s exactly what I was.
If you had to give some tips to a woman looking to snag their own ‘bad boy’, what would you tell them?
Bad boys are unpredictable and selfish. They can be demanding and are always looking for a good time. If that type appeals to you, by all means, catch his eye at the club. Don’t ask him to buy you a drink, demand it. And then act as disinterested as possible. That will wind him up like nothing else will. Bad boys like a good chase.
