……………. “What does it say?” Chase asked getting up and dusting himself off “Ice princess”
“You’re an ass” Jess groaned “It say’s ‘sometimes we must lose ourselves to find ourselves’ wow that’s pretty much true” Jess sighed
“Pretty dumb if you ask me” Chase put his hands on his hips
“Well it’s only dumb to those of you that can’t spell it” I waded in to the water. Chase looked a little puzzled for a minute before one f the other hands started to laugh and the ‘guy” wrestling started to whoops and hollers from some of the others.
“Hey Meg” I looked round as I got waist deep in the cool water Reid swam across to me “Take no notice of Chase it’s about time someone put him in his place”
“He’s just another guy with a mouth” I shrugged I dipped my shoulders under the water “you kinda get used to them” I looked back over my shoulder as the wrestling that had progressed into the water “You get dicks all over the US”
“I guess you’re right” Reid nodded “So you get guys hitting on you like him then?
“No not really” I shook my head
“Yeah right you not getting hit on” Jess walked over “Have you seen the tongues hanging out over there?”
“I’m not looking for any one or anything” I shook my head “so the policy your Mom has wish not dating staff I’m so okay with” I dipped my head back feeling the coolness on my scalp.
“I wished she worked for Momma” Reid groaned I stood upright between Reid and Jess as Blakes walked over a Skinny blond trailing behind him her plaid shirt tide right under her boobs and he white shorts so tight we could lip read from over here in the middle of the creek in the dim evening light.
“Wow that’s…er… well” I ran my hand through my hair
“That’s Sally” Jess huffed “Reid can’t you talk to him she’s so wrong for him” jess looked at Reid
“Hey I might as well have a heart to heart with a damn rattlesnake” Reid moved round in between Jess and I and put his arms over our shoulders
“Can’t your wife shoot her” I laughed making Jess giggle “I’ve never met the girl but it seems like none of you like her”
“Don’t tempt me” Reid shook his head “I mean sally has one hell of a bad reputation round here”
“You had her” Reid and Jess looked at me “Oooo sorry that should have stayed in my head”
“No I haven’t” Reid laughed “Sean and Blake have dipped in the same pool”
‘Ew… not what I wanted to hear” Jess splashed Reid
“Oh you so knew they’d done that Reid Grabbed his sister and picked her up “You’re going under” He Launched himself back dragging her down and under the water with him. I walked out of the water laughing.
“Need a hand” I looked at the hand outstretched in front of me striped to his waist and in a pair of swim shorts Blake was offering me his hand.
“I think I got it” I smiled as I stepped on a slick rock and almost lost it there and then
“Really” Blake caught me and pulled me upright quickly the heat from his body felt strange against the coolness of my wet skin “could have fooled me”
“I should have kept my mouth shut” I laughed pulling away from him as the blond put her hands on her hips and glared at me “I always get bitten in the ass when I say something won’t happen” I watched as his eyes wander down my body
“Well it’s one hell of an a…”
“Hey Baby you got the beer” sally’s arm snaked over blakes shoulder “I kinda need a drink after the start to the evening we had” she pressed her lips to the side of his neck keeping her eyes on me as she kissed him “then you can get me in the creek I’m feeling hot”
“Sally I’d like you to meet Megan she’s working here on the ranch” he seemed to be a little uncomfortable with the PDA she was showing him as he folded his arms over his chest the breeze ruffling his hair.
“Not from round here is she” she sneered with a giggle “You can smell out of towners”
“Why because we wear deodorant and shower, and not have that two day old hooker smell” I smiled sweetly. There were roars of laughter from most of the guys and a few of the girls that were round the small fire pit that had been started. “Oh and Honey you’ve got more Camel toe happening than they have in the Sahara”
“Oh Girl you so did not just say that” sally went to lunge at me, I didn’t flinch or move it’s been up against bigger and badder than a small town tramp “I’ll show you what a Texas beating entails”
“Whoa” Chase and Blake grabbed her I felt hands on my arms and looked back to see Reid holding me
“Hey you came out swinging for me I give as good as I get I’m not here to make friends if I’m attacked first” I shrugged of Reid’s hands “FYI little girl don’t piss me off”
“He’s my Cowboy” she hissed as she struggled against Blake and Chase
“And do I look like I care, I got here today I’m not in the habit of chasing men from the first time I see them and sweetheart I’m not up for the mach shit Been there done that and got the sca…” I trailed off mouth was running in high gear, Karin’s voice was in my head telling me to shut the hell up. I took a deep breath “excuse me” I looked at Jess “It’s been on hell of a long few days, sorry for snapping”
‘It’s all good” Jess smiled at me
‘You should be apologizing to me… not to…” Blakes hand went over Sally’s mouth silencing her I bent and picked up my cover up.
“I’m going to go and shower up and try to get a good night’s sleep” Jess pulled me to her and hugged me
“Sleep well Meg” Chase Said with a friendly smile not the leering smile he’d used every other time I’d talked to him
“Hey meg we’ll go riding tomorrow after your done with whatever Momma wants you to do” Jess called after me I nodded and walked away kicking my own ass for opening my mouth a little too wide right now and letting my temper get the better of me
