Gwyneth was the new office’s dispatch / receptionist / human resources officer at Drakos Heating and Cooling. Ed wasn’t the only one Clint had given a hard time. Then you’re done here.” Ed moved forward and Clint stiffly slid the paperwork across the desk at him. “Then I should thank you for looking out for me.” “You going back to the office now? Once he was done he was in the master bedroom and his mind returned to the last time he’d been with the woman. This means I won’t tell anyone about our time together. Ed was delighted she’d relaxed her need to have her make-up airbrushed on to perfection. She’s crying too hard to speak right now but I’ll make sure she’s on that plane tonight.” “You were listening? “Yes, I’m terribly sorry for my intrusion but Victoria went through some pretty awful treatment from Judge Rutledge. She needs her mom and dad and she needs her daughters so I’ll get her packed and on that plane.” “You- you know what that man did to her? “Not the details, but I saw some pictures and I can see how hurt she is inside. He was at Stephanie’s home installing a new motion sensor spot light by the rear patio door. “After everything I did for them they fucked me over for you,” he growled quietly. You’ll receive a copy of the will and any other documentation regarding the progress of the probate and final distribution of the estate. “For years I tried to love Jeff as a sister should love her brother but he’s pushed me from his heart. He’d learned a lot about Stephanie on his visit to Kansas and he felt even closer to her now as a result.
She’d ordered the new coverall to give his new larger, harder muscles some space to breathe. Ed added his signature to the appropriate places and stood back. He remembered her lovely blonde hair spread out over the mattress under her, the flush in her cheeks from their lovema- he struggled to push the memories away as he began to stiffen in his tight clothes. That also means I won’t speak about theirs with you,” he said gently. She really was beautiful but now she looked human, not like a perfect porcelain doll. It must have been awful for her,” Ed replied and Victoria clung to him tighter as her gasps got louder. I- we were under the impression that she was alone,” the man said, his voice continuing to wobble. He heard a choking sound from the other end of the phone and the sound was muffled. The old one had given up the ghost and installing a new one was a job of only a few minutes. Feel free to contact the office if you have questions or concerns. My parents made us compete for their love and attention. He was really mean to me and I had to leave to survive. I was just lost in the ‘what might have been’ memories. Feeling a little warm and fuzzy he smiled over at her and she returned it.
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’d experienced first-hand how strong the petite powerhouse was. Clint Masterson was the site foreman and had been difficult for Ed to deal with since day one. something, he couldn’t recall specifically when it happened. “No Ed, why don’t you stay and see what crying to your boss resulted in,” Clint growled. His leg had taken longer to heal than expected and she was upset that he’d postponed the previous week’s appointment. Then Ed’s hand squeezed her ass and she forgot all about Miguel and Nelson. She walked them over to the end of the bed and turned to face him. Ed heard a loud crashing noise in the kitchen and he leapt down from the ladder to rush inside. He finally pulled back and she came back to herself, dazzled by the sensations flooding through her. He grinned at her as the playful Stephanie he knew and loved was resurfacing. The flight home was uneventful and as the plane touched down smoothly Ed released the breath he’d been holding.Ed had attended the wedding and Julian seemed like a really nice guy. Zoe had sworn him to secrecy so he couldn’t reveal any of the details to his family and friends. ” That was Zoe’s voice so she must be in the construction office trailer. While Victoria was tall, svelte, and with her allure and class reminded Ed of a Hollywood actress of the 1940’s like Veronica Lake, the judge was small in stature and low in character. Her hair was under his nose and the scent of melon and something tropical tickled his sense of smell. He couldn’t resist the impulse to finally slide his fingers into her hair. Ed picked up the phone and held it to his ear as he looked at the weeping woman. He’d picked up two of the units as Carolyn’s home was built at the same time Stephanie’s was and the two buildings were identical in all aspects, aside from décor. William, her oldest, nodded and got the three others to help him collect the spilled food and put it in the trash. While they took care of the mess, Ed lifted Stephanie in his arms and carried her to the living room. Her second oldest child brought her a box of tissues. He wasn’t able to read all the expressions on her face but sadness was definitely involved. She was going to keep it to herself but the woman deserved to know as she’d have to deal with Jeff. You want to press assault charges against this man? Ed was looking at Stephanie who was still watching the door. She was every bit as playful as she’d always been but now she was more willing to leap in with both feet.She wanted it to be a surprise when it was ready for ‘the big reveal’ as Zoe called it. The gate opened and Ed drove in and parked next to it. It took a long time as it’s such a complex installation but everything passed. He was both physically and mentally abusive, controlling, and deeply corrupt. He felt her trembling so he wrapped his arms around her. Victoria’s eyes closed in happiness at the feel of his touch and her gently smiling lips parted. She nodded to him and put her hands over her face as she cried. Both homes were a reflection of the women who lived in them. She must have taken the call while preparing dinner. He dabbed away her tears with a tissue as she looked at him. “I think changing the will was my parent’s last attempt to pit us against each other. She hadn’t let him do anything but lie back and enjoy himself and as he’d sprawled out on the bed enjoying the afterglow Stephanie said that she’d slept better that night than she could ever remember. After they’d checked out of the motel they’d visited the lawyer’s office and signed the papers on the way out of town.She squirmed, cooed, and panted as his touch triggered wave after wave of pleasure to course through her body. Ed looked at the surprised look on Victoria’s blissed out face. They ordered some drinks, Ed opting to stick with water while Stephanie had a beer. All her childhood memories flashed through her mind, all the terrifying and painful moments when Jeff had beaten her, driving her to the ground again and again. Her own rage from all those years of abuse suddenly exploded and she screamed as she drove her foot up into his testicles lifting him up onto his toes. That done he stood and faced her with a broader smile. Gary considered the younger man and smiled as they shook hands. Jeff got an unpleasant surprise and this is how he responded. Stephanie looked down at her brother who was on his stomach and… If you want to charge him with assault I could do that,” he said looking at Ed whose chin was now a lovely shade of purple. ” he said with a smile as he pulled Rachel in for a hug and kissed her.She felt helpless in his grip yet safe as well for he was only doing what she’d wanted him to do all along. He reached over and picked up the handset for her and she moved it to her ear. The atmosphere in the bar was lively and the crowd was friendly. ” Ed scowled at the rude names he and Stephanie were being called. He wondered how such a bad man could be father to such nice kids. With his own pending fatherhood he really wanted to know. “I didn’t want to come back but they were my parents and they died. Jeff squealed and his eyes rolled back as he slowly collapsed with his right hand in the air, still poised to punish his little sister. ” He released the wrist and Jeff slumped to the floor to curl into a fetal position as he moaned. The bouncer there tried to intervene but Jeff hit him then Ed got a punch for no reason other than just being here. He hugged and kissed Angie next and they were back to smiling. “As you know Carolyn is beginning a world tour of museums with her exhibition on the lost tribe of New Guinea and their language.
