"Okay, how do I look?" Hunter asked walking into my room.
"Nervous?" I asked, smiling at him. He rubbed the back of his
head and sighed. "Hunter calm down." He straightened his t-shirt
before we went back to rubbing his shaved head.
"I have never been this nervous in my whole life, not even at
boot camp or that time I was pinned down by a snipped. God what
if I do something to mess this up? What if I say something that
makes her not like me oh god Ry, I can't even think straight." He
sat down on my bed.
"Aw you are so cute. Calm down Hunter everything is going to be
fine. Don't worry about it. You look great." I smiled patting his
hand. He did you good. He had on a nice polo shirt with a pair of
dark blue jeans. I made him take a shower because he put on too
much body spray that I started to cough and my eyes watered.
"You think I look good?" He asked standing up and putting his
hands in his pockets.
"You look great. Emmy would be crazy not to want to love you. You
are my brother. Not stop making me think of you as a guy, and not
as my brother." I laughed as he pushed my face in my blankets.
"Funny. I'm sorry, I'm just so nervous. She just, I don't even
know." He sighed rubbing his face. I put my hand on his arm.
"Don't worry. It will be great, I'm sure of it." I smiled looking
at my clock. "You should get going now. Be careful driving." I
smiled kissing his cheek. He nodded his head.
"Okay, I can do this. I can do this." He nodded getting up. "I
love you sis." He got up and walked out. I shook my head and went
back to watching TV. My phone started to ring to ring next to me.
Emmy*Okay I'm freaking out right now.
Me* Okay, why are you freaking out?
Emmy* I don't know what to wear. Asher has been trying to walk
and he keeps falling so I have to watch him and he hasn't stopped
so I haven't had time to pick it out.
Me* Okay, well Hunter is on his way there he just left the
Emmy* Oh god way to make me feel better Ry. God what should I
Me* Some clothes. Don't worry about what you wear. He is taking
you out to dinner and I think then for some hot chocolate and ice
Emmy* Oh that's so sweet of him.
Me* Hey come back from dreamland there Emmy.
Emmy*Right, sorry. So what should I wear? A shirt with a skirt or
pants or a dress? Oh I don't know.
Me* I think you should wear a pair of jeans and a t-shirt with a
Emmy*What is he wearing?
Me*He is wearing a light blue polo and dark blue jeans.
Emmy*Okay. I will wear something so we won't clash. Okay, oh I

new bag of toys and some blankets. You sure it's okay if he
sleeps over again?
Me* Its fine, don't worry about it Emmy. Just have fun.
Emmy*Thank you. I should get ready. We are going to drop him off
Me* Okay see you soon. Bye
I hung up the phone and got up from where I was curled up in my
blankets watching TV. I walked in the kitchen as Mom was grabbing
her car keys. "Okay I'm going now. Will you be okay with Asher?"
She asked. "I have a shift to go to."
"I will be fine Mom. Don't worry about it." I smiled pulling out
some ham and cheese from the frig.
"Okay. But don't eat that. I ordered you a pizza. The money is on
the table by the front door." She said kissing my head.
"Okay Mom. I love you. See you in the morning." I smiled.
"Okay, I love you too." She said leaving. I sighed putting back
the ham and cheese and grabbed a water bottle. I sat watching TV
till the door bell rang and I got the pizza. I grabbed a slice as
the door bell rang again. I opened the door taking a bite. Emmy
handed me Asher.
"Okay everything is in the bag. You know how to do everything?"
She asked handing me Asher.
"Yes, I do. Also you look great." I smiled at her. She had on a
red hoodie with a red shirt under it and a pair of jeans.
"Thank you. Hunter said I look beautiful tonight." She blushed. I
"Have fun I will see you tonight maybe even tomorrow." I giggled.
"Oh we will see." She said walking back to Hunter's truck. I
looked at Asher.
"Come on buddy I will make you a bottle as he watch TV." He
smiled at me…….. I walked to the door as it knocked. I opened it
to see a guy about 6 foot 4 with short dark brown hair. He smiled
at me making his brown eyes shine.
"Um Hi, this is the Bank's house right?" He asked.
"Yeah, you must be Tanner. Hunter said you were dropping
something off for him." I smiled up at him.
"yeah it's in my truck. I just want to make sure I didn't have to
leave it on the front steps." He said pointing to the dark blue
pick-up in the driveway.
"Okay, I will be in the living room." I said walking back to a
sleeping Asher. I heard a crash from outside and ran to go see
what was wrong. Tanner was laying in the snow face first. "Are
you okay?" I called out to him. He lifted his head up.
"I thing I hit my head but thank god it snowed." He laughed. I
walked over and pulled him up, well with his help. I hit the
truck as Tanner supported himself by putting his arms up on both
sides of me so not to crush me, as my hands flew to his chest. I
felt the dog tags through his shirts as I looked up into his warm
