"So what's he
saying" Libby asked getting up and walking across to the dresser
to check her hair again. 'He loves you and has for years and he
wants to sweep you off your feet" I gave her one of those shut up
looks and picked up my phone as it buzzed again.
Message*** Eli*** so Friday night no game whatcha doing***
See he wants

"Okay you want

"How do you

"You know me
when was the last time I had a date".
She said after thinking for a while "Oh but that was when we were
in 7th grade in middle school".

"11th" She sighed. "Well if you ever wore
more than jeans and a hoodie and acted less like one of the guys
then maybe they'd see you as a girl once in a

up the stairs I watched as Libby quickly checked her reflection
again before the door opened.

"HI Wes" Libby
said grinning like an idiot I did a double take I swear to god
her shirt had popped 3 buttons since the door
"Oh Hey Libby"
he said his eyes not leaving the cleavage that was proudly on

tear his eyes away.

could you have pissed off enough for them to do something like
that" I looked at Libby who was in between drooling over my big
brother and trying to work out how the hell someone take a
steering wheel from a truck.
"Do I have to
beat it out of you" He growled getting red in the
Wes was 14
months older than me and acted like 14 years younger. We'd all
got the same dark hair and grey eyes when I say we they're 5 of
us altogether; Jordan is the oldest at 22 and works as a
firefighter with Dad. Then comes Wes or doofus as I
affectionately call him like I said he's 14 months older than me
and had just turned 18, I was next and the only girl well I'm
supposed to be a girl but I think, I have one dress in my closet
everything else is jeans and t-shirts and hoodies school dances I
tend to stay home. Then I have 2 younger brothers Jamie and Gage
both trouble both 7 years old, they we're the Opps babies with
almost 10 years between me and them. We live in a piece of land
in the middle of nowhere perfect hunting and fishing land as Dad
calls it Mom had gone to town shopping one week before Christmas
3 years ago and we're still waiting for her to come home, We
don't tend to mention it because it always ends in tears and
normally one of us getting mad. We all pull our weight doing
things for Dad trying to make his life a bit easier, the house
was our favorite place to be our Great Grandpa had built it when
he was about 30 and it had been passed down and added to ever
since it was always warm and cozy and never allowed to fall apart
Dad had his pride in everything he did including the 5 of
"Oh it takes a
man not his dinner to beat anything out of me" I said getting up
and poking him in the chest "And why the hell would I want to
piss you off" I looked at me he knew anything he dished out he
got back from me. He and Jordan had taught me how to fight and
not like a girl I'd made Jordan see stars two weeks ago when I
was due on my period and he took the last Milky Way from the
"So who took
elves, Santa Oooo maybe the tooth fairy when she came for Jamie's
tooth last night" I shrugged Libby stifled a giggle "Take
Jordan's truck he's at work tonight so he rode in with Dad" I
sighed. "Where are you going anyway you've had a shower" he
flicked me the finger and leant on the dresser next to Libby the
color shot up her neck as his arm brushed hers.

jumped in before I could say anything.
"But it's dark
and cold" he looked at her his eyes flicked from hers to her
normally cold when its football season" he laughed "and we're
using the school field under the lights".
"Not heading to

"Cute pig I
wouldn't mind greasing him up and chasing him round a field"
Libby giggled as the door opened again and Wes put his head round
"Jamie and Gage
are staying at Eli's little brothers tonight" He smiled "Oh and
Libby I got the grease whenever you're ready" I thought she was
going to die as he walked down the stairs laughing.
you right for drooling over him and for god sake there was less
breast on show on the table last thanksgiving" I said creasing up
"Oh fuck off"
She said shaking her head. "Just how do you get a steering wheel
off a truck anyway" I walked across to my closet and opened the
door pulling out his steering wheel.
"Oh pretty easy
