………………. Blake walked into the kitchen of the main house.
“Coffee?” Sean was in Uniform leaning against the counter, Joanne in her robe at the table
“Sure” Blake nodded “and what the hell sis I need to get out of bed for”
“Well one it was probably a good thing you got out of bed with Sally” Joanne looked at him. He sat on the counter top and took the coffee from Sean.
“Okay just so you know I wasn’t with Sally” he sipped the coffee. Sean and Joanne exchanged glances “What… I wasn’t with her and I don’t’ think I’m going to be again”
“Okay what you going celibate?” Sean laughed
“No and is my sex life the reason I was dragged out of bed because I know right now where I’d rather be” Blake looked at both of them.
“What do you know about the guy Megan had here?” Sean folded his arms over his chest
“He’s an ass and I have a feeling he hits her or at least verbally abuses her” Blake narrowed his eyes a little “Why?”
“well he told me he was a Lawyer and Megan told me he was a Doctor” Joanne got up and refilled her coffee cup “So I asked your brother to look into it”
“Seriously” Blake got off the counter “Okay I don’t’ like the guy I’ll be the first to admit that but it’s none of our business who’s warming her bed…” he stalled as he said it, realizing what had come out of his mouth, and realizing it bothered him that Kain wasn’t even there and he was still topic of conversation
“I want to know who flies all the way from the upper mid-west for less than twenty four hours” Sean paced his hand on his service weapon at his hip “I mean is she that good in bed he’d come this far just to reconnect” Blake looked down and pinched the bridge of his nose he knew his mom would see right through him if he even tried to lie about whose bed he’d been in.
“If he’s abusing her then we shouldn’t let him on to the ranch I mean he could be some insane nut job” Joanne looked and Blake
“Okay my heads not into listening to this all I know is this guy means hell of a lot to her I’ve seen er in tears over him and he watches her like he’d take down any man that breathes in her wrong”
“Well you’d better watch your chaps Bro” Sean laughed “I’ve seen the pool of drool from you when you look at her and hell I don’t blame you she’s well Different and sexy bit don’t tell Sylvia I said that”
“Boys” Joanne groaned and shook her head
“I’m going to try to get some sleep before I start work” Blake put his cup in the sink
“do you know why she moved here?”
“No Momma” Blake sighed “You’re the one that gave her a job… and now I’m going to bed” he walked to the door and cut across the grass he headed for the bunk house and then veered off and came to the old ranch house and opened the door, I was lay in bed my cell rang as he was halfway across the living room.
Me * hey, am I glad you called
Kain * it’s gone wrong
I sat upright in bed my heart thundering in my chest
Me * what… Kain are you okay?
Kain * I’m in trouble Meg and it’s bad, he knows
Me * FUCK where are you I’m coming to get you
Kain * NO STAY THERE… I need you to meet me at the San Marcos municipal airport in a couple of hours
“Me * Kain…
Kain * Meg just be here baby please, I’m calling in a favor from a friend to get there
He sounded out of breath
Me * you’re scaring me
Kain * Meg it’s going to be okay, I just need to get out for a while and lay low
Me * I’ll be there, Damn Kain I need you
Kain * well it’s a good job we understand each other then sweetheart… I have to go
Me * love you
Kain * you too
The phone went dead and I got out of bed and paced the room. Blake pushed his hands int o his pockets and backed out of the house closing the door silently irritation and the feeling of being used creeping up his spine making him want to scream……….
