I couldn't help but chuckle at him. Him as in Taylor from the
dinner. Skylar looked over at me and laughed as I waved at them.
He winked at me as I took my shot after Colt went. "Hey Bailey
when are you going to go pick up Harley?" Colt asked as Wyatt
took his shot.
"I get to pick him up at 6 o'clock tomorrow. I cannot wait." I
smiled. Harley was my Rottweiler. You see I have to pick him from
the air plane landing tomorrow since he has been training at Camp
Pendleton with some M.P.s and other dogs. You see Ley-ley is a
service dog. He works with Dad when he is deployed. But since
Harley sadly got hurt he couldn't go on the last deployment with
Dad, but he's better now and he is coming home. Harley is my dog.
When he is home he is mine. I take him out for walks, feed him,
he sleeps with me, cuddles me when I'm sad. I love him. That's
why Dad got Max. Dillon and Bentley wanted to have Harley so Dad
got them Max, sadly he is still in his puppy stage and since
Harley isn't putting him in his place he is going crazy. I can't
wait to have my baby home.
"So are you going to pick him up after work or is your Mom?" He
"Nope I am picking him up before school. I'm going to go for a
run with him than go to school." I nodded as people started to
crowd around the tournament table.
"You're going to leave him in your truck?" He said raising his
eyes brow. I nodded.
"Harley loves to lay in the back with some blankets. I take him
out during lunch then take him home since I have my free after
lunch." I nodded as Bernie came jogging over to us.
"Come on Bails, you and Wyatt are up." I nodded.
"Okay be there in a minute. Let me get Wyatt." He nodded jogging
back over. I walked over to Wyatt grabbing his pool stick making
him look at me.
"What?" He asked looking at me.
"Come on we have a game to play." He nodded as we walked over to
"Took you two long enough." Bernie said as we walked into the
circle were the table was.
"Yeah yeah whatever old man." I snapped at him playfully. He
rolled his eyes at me.
"Okay so I want a clean pool game no cheating. We all know the
room here." He nodded looking at the four of us. 4 as in Wyatt
and me and the two guys we were playing.
"Well maybe you should tell them because this is going to be a
easy win." One of the guys laughed. I looked at Bernie.
"Bernie." I said nodding at them.
"I said a clean game so shut your mouth or you two are out. Do I
make myself clear?" They nodded. "That's what I thought. Okay
Bailey brake." Bernie said setting it up. I walked past Taylor
and Skylar who were in the crowd. Taylor leaned down so I could
feel his warm breath on my neck.
"Good luck Blondie." He chuckled making me shudder. I looked up
at him and rolled my eyes leaning down to brake. I hit the white
ball sending it into the other balls in the triangle on the
table. The balls went everywhere. Two striped ones made it into
the sockets on the corners of the table. I over and winked at the
guy looking at me in disbelief.
"Oh this is going to be fun." Was all I giggled…………
We were about half way done with the contest when I decided to
Me* Hey Mom.
Mom* Oh Hi sweetie how is pool?
Me* It's fun. I miss Dad was here though.
Mom* I know Baby but he will soon. I'm sure of it.
Me* Yeah I know Mom.
Mom* So what's up Sweetheart?
Me* Well I was just calling to say that we are going to be home
later than we had planned.
Mom* Okay, I'll bite, why are you staying later?
Me* Well you know that pool contest Bernie always holds that Dad
Mom* Yeah, of course your Father was a sore loser after he lost

Me* Well we came here today and it was today so Bernie said we
could get into it.
Mom* Oh that's awesome honey! Are you and Jayden winning?
Me* Ha that's the funny part, it's not Jayden. He had a 'date'
today so it's just me and Wyatt.
Mom* Oh sweetheart, I'm sorry.
Me* Don't worry about it. But me and Wyatt are doing really
Mom* That's good sweetie, just don't be home too late it is a
school night and remember you are picking up Harley tomorrow at 6
right. Cause you know if you don't want to go there at 6 your
Uncle Jesse said that he could take Harley home for us.
Me* No, no, no I am going to get him. I haven't seen him for like
3 weeks now and I miss my puppy.
Mom* Okay News flash Bailey, Harley is not a puppy.
Me* To me he is.
Mom* Okay Sweetheart I trust you.
Me* You think I'm crazy don't you.
Mom* A little but I know you get it from your father.
"Bailey come on you have another match to play." Bernie called. I
"Be there in a minute." I called back with my hand over the phone
Mom* Got to go?
Me* Yeah Mom, Wyatt and have another game to play.
Mom* Okay Baby. I love you and wake me up when you get in so I
know you two are safe.
Me* Okay Mom. I love you
Mom* I love you too.
I hung up the phone running back to get into the games..........
