She took a step forward and I held my ground.  I was so tired of the running, of the hiding, it was time for me to face my own demons.  I moved forward slowly and hesitantly.  "You know it could be a good think they were screaming my name other than some two bit hooker.  At least I gave them something to fantisize about.  I mean if you gave over every trick you have already then what is the point of even trying to pretend any longer."  I giggled.  "At least now you know what the men in your family really crave.  I wouldn't have anything to do with them, but at least now we know."  Each word was a step in her direction until I could feel her breath on my face. 


"You are arrogant, snide and nothing but a bitch.  I don't know why in the hell any man would want you.  For goodness sakes I remember when you still had your sight and were as meek as a mouse and timid as a house cat.  When you lost your sight and your whole world Jack and I were there to pick of the pieces and watch the children.  Now that you think you are all that someone really should take you down a peg."


I felt the air move around me and found myself pushed backwards.  I braced myself and moved forward, I wasn't going to lose ground.  I felt the air shift again and this time I moved with it and landed a punch right on her jaw.


"You know Geo, it is definately good that I wasn't actually going to hand you over custody of my children, I mean come on now, like I couldn't tell that there was something up.  Give me a break I am blind, not stupid.  You were waiting  for the chance to screw me over and I knew it.  I am done with you Geo now go, I don't want you back here again or I will take you out, do you understand?"


I heard a grunt and rustling coming from in front of me.  I braced myself for another attack and but I heard a sigh.  "You know I would have thought you were weaker because in the time I have been helping you, well you haven't fought once.  I was wrong, but you still need to watch your back.  I won't give up so easily and we are definately not through.  The two of us will never be through as long as I breath Mara, I really hope that you understand that."


I nodded my head.  "Well then I need to make sure the next time we meet you just stop breathing.  Geo,  I am done being nice no matter what.  I have had too much shit in my life to worry about being nice now.  The next time we do meet I will take that pretty head of yours off your shoulders for you.  You can bet your ass that after this moment it is no holds barred."  I turned away from her and headed back through the woods that I knew so well.  I was done with it all and the more I stood there the more my body pressed me into the final bouts of anger that would have me kill her where she stood. 


As I stepped out of the woods I felt arms engulf me and the familar scent of horses and leather.  I embraced Rick and smiled into his chest.  I felt his intake of breath as he saw the scratches across my skin from where I brushed up against a tree when Georgia pushed me.  His hands held me so protectively yet gentle at the same time and I felt at home.


"Are you alright Mara, not hurt at all?"  The question lumed before me and I just smiled.


I shook my head.  "Not hurt at all.  Those are just scractches and nothing to worry about."  I felt myself being led back through the yard.  I felt the steps under my feet and moved up them until I  felt the cool air on my face, a stark contrast to the heat of the Georgia air in the middle of the summer.  Rick led me to a chair and then I heard his steps disappear and return moments later.  It was a few seconds before I smelled the sharp scent of alcohol and knew what was going to happen.  I braced myself for the sting and kept my face passive.


"She vowed to kill me Rick.  The next time that her and I meet."  I paused for a moment.  "I really want to feel that woman's blood on my hands, everything that happened was because of her and now I just want it all to end."


I felt his intake of breath.  "One thing at a time my love, let's call your doctor and see what we can do about those beautiful eyes of yours.  Then we will talk vengence."


I nodded.  "One day things will go right, one day where I don't have to watch my back and wonder what is coming at me.  And when that day comes, you can be sure that I will be the happiest person ever, but until then....."
