All characters engaging in sexual relationships or activities are 18 years old or older. When his previous F-150 was destroyed in an accident he’d insisted that he could take the bus to work but they wouldn’t have it. “Kansas.” -=- Ed sat back in the passenger seat of the rental car and tried to distract himself from the seemingly endless flat expanse surrounding him. The lawyer knew what was coming so he took a deep breath.
Rachel, Angie, and Zoe had all pitched in to buy him a brand new Ford F-150 XLT. “No more than three, four days,” she sighed and he could see she was already beginning to relax, now that she knew she wouldn’t have to face this alone. He opened the docket and pulled out the single sheet of paper the Norris’ had written as their will.
He walked inside and she rushed over to get a hug and a kiss. I- I came in to do the sign off.” Ed said blinking at the two men. He’d killed a man Victoria had had an affair with and was going to kill Ed when he believed she’d bedded him as well. Ed found his mouth on hers and he was kissing her deeply and sensually. Stephanie’s choice in furnishings was clean lines and contemporary design with playful accents. Ed turned his face to her kids but they weren’t crying. She had the loveliest blue eyes which were now glassy with tears. I don’t believe they had a change of heart at all.” “That’s awful! “Yes, it is and it was like that my entire life until I left home.” There didn’t seem to be anything else to say. “I took your advice last night and I had a long talk with Mama. I called my friend Diane Mc Allister and she said with her mama gone she said I could get a job at the restaurant. They’d made a quick stop at Stephanie’s parent’s farm first. They parked on the shoulder of the road in front of the property and looked at what was left of the home which wasn’t much.
At 5’ 3”, Zoe Sandoval may have been petite in stature but her curves were breathtaking. He had no idea why they were so angry with each other. “Ed was working since he arrived today because he’s a professional. Ultimately Victoria had killed the judge with his own gun and spent some time in prison before her lawyer found evidence to prove her battered wife syndrome. She gasped and clung tighter as her tongue plunged into his mouth. Delightful on the eyes, soothing to the soul plus the gift of laughter. Carolyn’s anthropologist background made her choice of décor lean towards a more Bohemian style. When Jack graduates next year he and I are going to sign up for college and find a place we can share the rent on while we study.” “That’s wonderful! I’ll call his wife to let her know she can pick him up in the morning. The fire damage was extensive and her parents had pretty much been cremated in their own home due to the intensity of the blaze.
Before she could surge forward he lifted her sweater up and pulled her arms above her head. He was embarrassed to be listening in on this very personal call so he made to leave. Jamie hugged her aunt and shook Ed’s hand giving him a shy smile. Stephanie sat once more and Ed massaged her shoulders as she seemed tense. This clumsiness made the other dancers around him grin as his look of concentration was fierce. Stephanie’s eyes widened as his right hand pulled back to hit her. “I mooned over Stephanie all through high school and through elementary school as well, though she probably never knew. You’re as stunningly beautiful as you were the day you left.” Gary said. No sense in moping about what might have been.” Gary said with a sigh. He never broke himself of the habit though he doesn’t do it to his wife and kids which is a relief to know.” “Well, he can spend the night in the drunk tank tonight. Angie gave Stephanie a high five as Rachel fretted over Ed.
He got the sweater off but held her wrists together above her head with one hand while his other hand explored her breasts through her blouse and bra. ” she gasped in surprise, reverting to her childhood responses instantly. Victoria quickly reached out and grabbed his arm to stop him. ” The man’s voice came back but it was deeper now and trembling. Finally the line dance ended and they made their way to the bar. Her breath caught painfully in her chest as she stood frozen. ” The man nodded with a smile as he bent down to cuff Jeff who was just beginning to uncurl on the floor. Gary, this is Ed Walters, my boyfriend,” she said in introduction. I’d finally worked up the nerve to ask her out when she disappeared.” Gary explained. “If you’d been this charming back then I might not have left.” Stephanie replied with a grin. “So your brother here got drunk and started swinging? He wasn’t happy that I came back and we were at the lawyer’s office hearing our parent’s will read to us today. She took a step away, wrinkling her nose in disgust. He’s still in the bar so I can’t charge him with public drunkenness. “Enough about my little bruise, what are you two doing here?
While Gwyneth was a bubbly, smart, and plump bundle of energy who was fun to talk to, he missed Lydia. It was unlike any house Ed had ever seen before and had some rather challenging heating and cooling requirements. Clint picked up the document and added it to the docket. The coverall could use just a little more room in the groin region he realized. She pressed her face against his neck under his chin, taking comfort from his solidity. Lovely hazel eyes, a strong but slim nose above eminently kissable lips with her trademark bold red lipstick. “Yes, everyone she knew here abandoned her but the ladies in this neighborhood and I welcomed her into our family. Ed looked at Victoria whose tears were finally slowing. With dusk approaching Ed just had enough light to get the job done without having to wear a headlight. She collected her siblings and led them back into the kitchen. It was nice meeting you.” The man shook their hands and left the room. I don’t know why they did that but it ruined my relationship with them and my brother. We’ll never be friends and I’ve learned to accept that. I do remember Gary and he didn’t catch my eye back then. I can’t see myself being involved with someone in his dangerous line of work. Just then she heard one of her favorite songs begin. She tipped her chin up and he leaned in for a tender kiss. Ed thought she looked calmer than he’d ever seen her.
After a whirlwind romance she’d married a lawyer named Julian and no longer worked for her Dad. Gwyneth had dispatched him to a job in his own neighborhood. Ed enjoyed the challenge and had offered some innovated solutions for the unique build. Victoria Rutledge was the widow of Judge Nelson Rutledge, who Ed discovered was an evil little troll of a man. ” Suddenly she was crushed up against his chest, clinging to him with all her strength. Her yellow gold hair fell in relaxed waves around her face and over her shoulders. When Stephanie called to ask him if he could help her with it he’d gladly agreed. Ed took Stephanie’s hands and gently pulled them away from her face leaving them clasped in her lap. It still makes me sad though.” She looked at Jenny. “You should probably go to the hospital to confirm you don’t have a concussion.” Gary suggested which got him a slow nod in response. “You’ll live.” He hoisted Jeff to his feet and, with a final lingering look at Stephanie, led him from the building. Her head snapped around to stare at Ed who was watching her nervously. It takes a much stronger person than me to survive that.” “I think you’re amazingly strong! There had always been a little hint of hesitance or nervousness to her behavior but since this morning when she woke him with some delightful oral play, the timid Stephanie was gone.
He rolled his shoulders, enjoying the lack of tightness the new coverall he’d just been given this morning now afforded him. “Sorry you had to deal with that jerk,” the older man said. I just ignored the other stuff.” Drakos smiled self-consciously. The large house was silent, accentuating its museum like ambiance. ” Ed tilted his head back and she looked up at him timidly. The tension and desperation in her voice was fading. Chapter 2 Sunday night found Ed at the top of a short ladder with the sound of laughing kids playing in the backyard behind him. The reading of the will.” Her sniffles were starting up again. “The will stipulates that all of the assets listed above be divided equally between the two heirs, Jeff and Steph-” “WHAT? Ed took Stephanie’s hand in his and gave it a gentle squeeze to let her know he was there for her. You cannot prove you have grounds for contesting it and in doing so you will lose your share.” Jeff leaned back and stared at the lawyer in stunned silence. He nodded to Jenny then smiled at the remaining people in the room. It’s an honest question,” Stephanie said to stop Jenny from chastising her daughter.
Over the winter months he’d gotten back into his workout routine and discovered he’d increased his muscle mass to the point where his already form fitting coverall had become constrictive. “I guess I’ve just become a little over protective of you.” Ed smiled at the man. “I should check on Victoria’s place while I’m here, then I’ll head back.” “You’re still doing that? Ed made his way through his routine of inspecting the home for any sign of damage from water damage to broken glass. “One of the things you can depend on me to be is discreet. Ed locked up the house and made his way back to the office. He’d enjoyed his two days off, there hadn’t been a crisis at the office after all, and this was the only work he’d been faced with. “I’m so sorry for your loss.” She nodded jerkily and clung tighter to his hands. Then he looked at Stephanie and his expression darkened. “Having met the requirement of a ‘reading’ I’ll proceed with the process following more current practices. ” Jamie asked, causing her mother to look crossly at her. She looked at the girl and saw she had the attention of all of the kids. “Of course we can.” Chapter 5 Their flight was beginning its decent and Ed was looking forward to getting home to Grace and the others.
Once he had the top open his hand slid inside and caressed her stomach, her side and moved around to her back. They swayed in each other’s arms as they moved along with the other dancers. The couple on the other hand just looked offended by the drunk. The man staggered back and bumped into a waitress who shrieked. They looked down and the bouncer was sitting on the ground holding his head. Jeff there is drunk and hit this man who accidentally bumped his head and fell down. He was going to hit Stephanie so I grabbed his wrist. She flew to France last night.” “I’m sorry I missed her.
Her breath was coming in gulps now and she pressed her knees together to calm the maddening tingle between her thighs as her juices ran down the tender skin there. A few people gave them odd looks but at least there wasn’t any open hostility as there had been at the bowling alley. Trying not to fall on her the bouncer twisted and slammed his temple into one of the wooden posts next to the bar. A tall state trooper with broad shoulders made his way over to them, likely called in by the bartender. It would have been nice to see Paris with her,” Ed said with a frown. ” -=- Friday morning found Ed blinking the sleep from his eyes as the flight attendants came through the cabin waking the sleeping passengers and getting them to raise their seatbacks in preparation for landing in Paris.
Ed’s clever fingers found the buttons on her blouse and quickly popped them open one at a time from the top. Ed was too close not to hear both sides of the conversation. Ed nodded to a few people he’d been dancing next to and they grinned and nodded back to him. Ed needed to observe some examples of how to be a good father but all Jeff seemed to be was a great example of the opposite. I needed to say one final goodbye,” Stephanie raged back. Stephanie watched the hand slowly drop and saw Ed was holding the wrist tight in his big fist. Stephanie stepped over her brother to take Ed into her arms. “I kicked him in the groin because he was going to hit me.” That got a nod from the officer. He was going to hit me as well but Ed stopped him and I… She was called by the Director of the Louvre in Paris, France who informed her of a special presentation for her on Saturday evening. She came by the house yesterday as she thought you’d be home by then.
