Even though in two days it would only be the first of May the temperatures were higher than normal and he’d been able to go without a jacket for the past week. Or if she’ll be back at all,” Ed replied with a little shrug but his face looked sad. Drakos just patted his shoulder and made his way to his car to drive back to the office. A friend of Victoria.” “Thank you for being there for our little girl. ” “Yes, ma’am.” Victoria desperately pulled the phone from Ed’s hand and held it to her ear. ” The two women burst into tears again and tried to speak but it was no good. The family was knitting back together and she was healing. ” she asked in a little girl voice as she looked at him, her eyes pleading. “The family home is too badly burned to salvage but I understand the insurance company has agreed to a full payment of the policy as the cause of the fire was determined by the Fire Marshal to be a faulty electrical outlet.” Jeff nodded stiffly and Stephanie’s eyelashes pooled with unshed tears. THIS BITCH GAVE UP ANY GOD DAMNED CLAIM SHE HAD TO ANYTHING FROM THIS FAMILY THE DAY SHE ABANDONED IT! ” Jeff barked as he allowed himself to be pulled back into his chair by Jenny. They created the will at their own request without outside influence or duress. I suspect they were aware of your feelings in this matter and included the clause to negate the option. “How long will this probate period be,” Jeff said tersely. If all goes well the probate period could be over in six to eight months, twelve at most.” Jeff’s expression soured considerably hearing how long it would take. A year of waiting for the bitch to cut our throats. My apologies.” “No need for you to apologize to me Jenny. As I’ve said, it was one of the main reasons I fled when I did,” Stephanie said with a weary voice. I have four children of my own to ensure the future for and my parent’s contribution to that would be welcome,” Stephanie explained to the lawyer who gave her another nod. We could stop by on the way out if the document could be ready by no later than 9am? “I can come by in the afternoon.” Jenny said, slightly dazed.His work coverall was plenty warm enough on its own. I know some of the other guys didn’t like him but I didn’t have to like him to work with him. Ed drove his truck up the hill to the top, not much of a distance from Zoe’s really, and let himself into the mansion with the key Victoria left him with. She had no idea when she would return but at least she sounded happy. She dabbed at them absently with a tissue Ed handed to her. ” he yelled as he jabbed his finger at Stephanie who stared back in surprise at his violent reaction. If you proceed with contesting the will let me assure you that you will lose. “I’ll have the document for the farm ownership transfer prepared by my assistant. Her remaining questions were moot with the transfer of Stephanie’s share of the farm to her.
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.
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.
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.
More the result of medical science than nature perhaps but eye catching in the extreme. He’s mine so I can say all kinds of nice things about him! She didn’t like how the man was always picking on Ed’s naiveté. ” “Final inspections of the systems we installed,” Ed replied. Don’t waste my time standing around here all day swapping spit with your girlfriend! Ed jumped and quickly made his way out of the trailer. Now she was in England with her parents but more importantly with her two girls, reunited after their tumultuously emotional separation. My leg hadn’t healed and I was restricted to office work. He sucked on her tongue aggressively and moved one of his hands down her back to her ass as the other gripped her hair. ” Victoria burst into tears and clung to Ed as her emotions imploded. The artifacts and textiles she’d collected in her field days accented her more traditional and maybe a little ornate furniture. ” Stephanie said and Ed nodded with a smile of his own. Stephanie and Ed got up and walked around the table. The young woman thrilled to feel Ed’s strong arms wrapped around her. I just haven’t been able to break the habit of wearing the ring.” “It’s a sweet gesture.” Stephanie said and patted his arm. Ed and Stephanie had a moment of silence while they stood looking at the cold charred remains of what had once been her home.
Her breasts were large and round, larger than her small frame normally supported. Ed was an innocent and didn’t understand when someone was just teasing or being sarcastic or worse, lying. He heard Zoe’s raised voice as the door closed behind him. Victoria was getting the psychiatric treatment she needed from years of abuse from her husband. They were learning the truth about their family and how much they needed each other after the ordeal. ” she gasped, tears beginning to pool in her thick lashes. Victoria was gasping for breath as Ed’s hands and kiss made her so excited. She took his hand and led him up the long curved staircase to the second floor and down the hall to the master bedroom. Always something interesting to look at to stimulate your mind no matter where you cast your eyes in her home. Jillian immediately went to her aunt and gave her a warm hug which Stephanie returned. He made to kiss her cheek but Jillian turned her face boldly and his lips landed on hers. He just looked at her and saw she needed to unwind so he turned into the parking lot as she squealed with glee. There was a long bar and lots of tables and a huge dance floor which was currently occupied by a large number of people all dancing in synchronized step in rows. Ed was never very good at reading expressions but Stephanie’s face seemed to be swinging between grief and anger.
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.
Her ass was also plump and round though Ed was sure that was more nature than anything else. He’d been all over the building from the roof to the cellar and everything had passed his inspection with flying colors. She pushed at Ed’s chest to break the kiss and he blinked at her in a lustful daze. Ed caressed her lips with his and she felt tingles rush down her spine. He found Stephanie sitting on the floor of the kitchen with her back against the island and her face in her hands. Scattered next to her on the floor was a tray and the sandwiches and salad she’d prepared for a light dinner on a hot night. When her eyes opened she smiled up at him impishly and Ed couldn’t help but return the smile as she looked so much like her aunt at that moment. She stood and hugged him for a time then they made their way outside. I’m still a little emotionally drained.” “Sure.” Ed got her into the car and drove them back to the motel. They watched the other dancers and did their best to follow the steps. “Yeah, I should probably stop wearing this.” At Stephanie’s shocked look he continued. They shuffled off the plane, got their bags and headed for the exit to catch a cab home.
With her caramel skin, abundance of gold bangles, earrings, and necklaces, some of which were disappearing into her deep cleavage, she was pure sexiness in a compact package. Considering how meticulous he was during the installation and how critical he was of the work done during his inspections he was pleased with the result. When his large hands slid under her sweater over her stomach she gasped aloud and her eyes flew open. The handset for the kitchen phone was also on the floor. Unaware of Jenny’s cheeky move, Jenny was giving Stephanie a hug. “Have I told you how much I love you for coming here with me? I don’t think I could have faced Jeff without you by my side.” Ed smiled and dipped down to kiss her sweet lips tenderly. They rested for a couple of hours then grumbling stomachs demanded to be fed. Stephanie quickly mastered the sequence but Ed was having trouble getting his muscles to follow the pattern he’d observed. Ed blinked when he saw the smiling faces of Rachel and Angie waiting for them. Angie gingerly turned his face so she could get a better look.
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.
