....................... I felt someone shaking me I groaned and opened my eyes and Saw Luke standing over me with a steaming mug of coffee

“I was on coffee duty this morning and David told me to come wake you up” I sat up and rubbed my hands over my face Luke sat on the end of the bed “What did you say to Ri last night because he was like a bear with a sore ass”

“I told him that when Mom and Dad are around we’ll be civil to each other and then the rest of the time he doesn’t have to acknowledge me” I took the coffee and took a drink of it as Luke looked down “Hey come on we can’t all get along and you know Riley and I have bumped heads for a long time” I pushed off the covers and dropped a kiss on my little brothers head “don’t let it bother you” I put the cup down and reached in to my closet and pulled out a pair of battered old jeans and my old work boots.

“I’ll be downstairs” Luke got off the bed and walked out of the room. Luke was the sweetest one out of all of my brothers and I think that had a lot to do with him being the baby of the family and we all took care of him, he’d still get down and fight with anyone if he was pushed but he wanted to be like River and Join the Marines when he was done with school. I pulled on one of my old Tanks and walked across the hall and put my head round River’s bedroom door River was dead to the world on his bed with Riley on his bed snoring deeply. Kent and Dallas we’re on an air mattress between the two beds snuggled together like puppies I smiled and closed the door and headed down the stairs.

“Well good morning” David smiled filling the battered travel cups with coffee to take out to the milking Shed “I didn’t know if you’d be able to get up”

“I’m normal up at 5.30 every morning” I poked my tongue out at him

“Pushing paper” He teased

“I can still do the hard stuff” I took the cup he held out “I’m not soft you know” he followed me across the yard as the fingers of dawn began to lighten the sky.

We spent the next three hours bringing in and milking the cows moving them out and bringing in the next round. It felt good to be working physically again this used to be a huge part of my life every day for years.

“We need to take some of the feed out to the field and check the water” David said as the last of the cows left the milking shed and Luke cleaned it all down

“I’ll get the feed to the horses in the top field I saw River and Riley had gone out to the pasture with the feed for thr cows before” I pulled on the battered leather work gloves from my back pocket,

“Why don’t you take a break?” David pulled a rag from his pocket and wiped his face with it

“Because I’m good” I picked up my cup and drained the last of the coffee “You need to rest your old bones” I teased

“Okay for that you can take the feed on your own” I shrugged and walked out across the yard

“Well look at you” Kent was on the front porch “What happened to clean and sexy office Blue”

“She’s on the farm and working her ass of” I smiled at him “And I broke four nails so far and I don’t’ really give a rats ass” I beamed Dallas walked out of the house talking to Jason as I got on the ATV and took off to the top field with a load of feed for the horses.

“Okay why is she happy about getting all dirty and grimy and sweat and breaking nails”

“She’s doing what she grew up doing” Jason shrugged “It gets really hard sometimes but you take a break and step away from it for a while and you actually miss it and she hasn’t done this for almost 5 months” He jumped over the rail “Ask Dallas he’s helped out more than once” Jason walked across the yard stopping as a sleek black Camaro pulled into the driveway.

“Oh he came” Kent whistled as Orlando got out of the car “Damn that’s one fine man how can she leave his sexy ass”

“I know blue can sometimes be an unknown entity” Dallas sighed “Morning Hot ass” He laughed calling out to Orlando who smiled and waved at him.

“You just missed her she went to the top field” Jason said as he shook Orlando’s hand “Dude what happened?”

“If I knew maybe I could tell you” Orlando shrugged River walked out of the pasture with Riley

“Damn another fine car dude” Riley whistled looking at the Camaro

“Thanks your sister prefers it over the Audi”

“Yeah well she’s always been weird” Luke laughed joining them

“I think we need to talk” River said looking at Orlando

“Okay” Orlando looked worried “Is she okay?”

“She’s Blue put it like that” Derek chuckled “And dude we’ve all given her crap about leaving you”

“You guys go back to work and let me talk to him” River said looking round “Riley you need to go into town and get the part for the tractor”

“I know… damn since you became a Marine you turned bossy” He laughed at his twin River walked back into the house with Orlando Kent and Dallas went out for Dallas to show him around.

“Okay so she’s not okay?’ Orlando flipped the chair round and sat down as River pushed a coffee in front of him, “It’s written all over your face River… what the hell did I do to hurt her like this”…………………..
