This seems to be working again. Welcome back! I do have some new stories brewing and I’ve got a lot of work to do on this site. But in the meantime, here’s a little snippet from Chase and Annie:
“Why do you always show up when I fall?” Annie attempted to stand while brushing at the mud and sawdust caking her jeans.
“Cause women like you need a man like me to show you that you don’t have to do everything on your own.”
“You goin’ all Alpha on me now?” Annie sputtered.
“Yes and what’s more, I’m YOUR Alpha.” Chase reached one giant forearm down to lift Annie to her feet.
“I’m not going anywhere with you,” Annie three out as a challenge.
“You are. One way or another.”
Chase slipped his arm around Annie’s waist and handily leveraged her up over his mammoth shoulder. As he headed toward his truck with Annie demanding to be put down from behind him, he spotted Young.
“Hey, Man,” Young grinned. “You found her. Hey, Annie.” Young leaned around Chase to tip his hat toward Annie’s flushed face.
“Y’all leavin’?” Young amicably tossed Annie’s hat up to her.
“NO!” Annie bellowed backwards.
“Yes.” Chase never slowed his stride to the pickup. “You can ride up front or I can harness you in the trailer. Your choice.”
