Without You(10)

By: Kelly Elliott

Maegan pushed Grace’s hand off her arm and smirked. “You seriously think Michael is interested in screwing you?”

“Stop it. Now,” I said. “Just stop this. Meg, Libby is just asking them if they want some tea. Stop being bitches to each other and make up. We have a party to get ready for.”

Grace glared at Maegan.

Meg looked at Libby and Luke and then turned back to Grace. “Fine. Just so you know, Grace, I like Luke and not just because I want to sleep with him.” She turned and started back toward the ranch Jeep.

I let out a sigh and looked at Grace. “Why did you say that?”

She shook her head and walked closer to me. “Alex, you know as well as I do that Meg only wants to sleep with Luke because she knows Libby likes him. Meg has been jealous of their friendship for years.”

I knew she was right, but I didn’t want to be pulled into this argument that had been going on for the last few years.

I let out a sigh and said, “I don’t think Luke is going to sleep with or even go out with either one of them, so let’s just drop it.”

I turned and started making my way toward Will. He was covered in sweat, and my body ached for his touch. The closer I got, the more turned-on I got. I bit down on my lower lip, and I was pretty sure I let out a moan.

I looked over my shoulder to see Grace hadn’t followed me. She pulled out her cell phone and started texting someone. I glanced back to see Will smiling at me.

When I walked up to him, he grabbed me and pulled me in for a kiss. I didn’t even care that my brother and cousin were standing there. I wrapped my arms around Will, and as he picked me up, I wrapped my legs around him.

“Motherfucker, put my sister down now,” Colt said.

I pulled my lips from Will’s. I turned to Colt and smiled.

“Seriously, Alex, get the hell off of him.”

The last thing I wanted to do was piss off my brother. He’d go running back to our father and tell him. I looked back at Will and pouted as he slowly let me down.

He put his lips to my ear and whispered, “I can’t wait any longer. Tonight, baby.”

Holy crap. I was sure my heart had stopped beating.

I had no idea what he’d meant by that, but I was sure hoping that he’d meant tonight would be the night he made me his.

“You going to the party tonight, Lib?”

I looked over at Luke, who was trying to act like he didn’t really care what Libby’s answer would be.

She shrugged her shoulders. “Not sure. Jason Stone asked me to meet him there.”

Luke had been getting a drink of tea when he choked on it. “What? Jason Stone asked you out, and you said yes?”

I glanced at Will. He was smirking and nodding his head.

He grabbed my hand and said, “Come on, we’re finally done. I need to get home and take a cold shower. It’s hot as hell out here.”

Colt was already walking ahead of all of us as he texted on his phone, and Will and I began following him.

“I didn’t say he asked me out.” Libby started walking next to me.

Oh, she is good. I tried to hide my smile, but all I could think about was how Maegan had no idea what she was up against.

“Um…yeah, ya did. You just said that Jason Stone asked you to meet him there.”

I watched as Luke walked next to Libby while he frantically pulled his T-shirt back over his head.

Libby shrugged her shoulders. “So? That’s not a date, Luke. What do you care if it is a date anyway? I heard you making plans to meet up with Hope Kirkland.”

Luke started laughing. “Hope? Please.” He rolled his eyes, and then he began walking backward as he looked at all of us. “Hey, I have an idea.”

“No,” Will, Libby, and Colt all said at the same time.

I began laughing. Luke was always coming up with these crazy plans. He had gotten us all in trouble more times than I could even remember.

“Come on, y’all. Let’s all meet at the river first. We can hang out a bit before we go to the party. Are Lauren and Taylor going?”

“Yep,” Libby said.

“Shit. No alcohol if they’re going to be there,” Luke said.

Since Lauren and Taylor were the youngest, Luke would insist on no alcohol anytime they were with us. It would drive Lauren mad, but Taylor couldn’t care less. She’d never had the desire to even try a beer.

“How can you say that? Colt isn’t that much older than them, and you don’t care if he is there,” Libby said.

Luke shrugged his shoulders. “Colt’s a guy. He’s different.”

Libby stopped walking.

Will moaned, “Great. Here we go.”

I giggled as I hit him lightly on the side.
