Hi, Y’all! It’s time for Snippet Sunday again. I didnt get a lot of work done last week but I did get a few good chapters in. Last week I left you hanging with a sexy cowboy. Would you like anther look at him?
This is a rough draft and the only eyes on it has been mine… so remember this is a diamond in the rough please be kind.

Here we go again. Caleb is smothering me with his help. I can’t seem to get it through his thick skull that I need to do this on my own. He isn’t my husband. My husband is no longer here.
“And I told you I don’t want that. I can’t pay you back.” Sometimes I wonder if I should break our friendship, so he night move on with his life. I’m too selfish for that. I need him. Only not the way he wants me to need him.
“I never said anything about payback. I promised Steve I would take care of you and the boys.” The sadness in his voice almost makes me change my mind. Almost.I look towards the barn. The thought of the young man inside makes me wonder f he is right. Maybe this is a big mistake. I can feel the change in the air.
I am not a kid Caleb. I need to take care of this myself. This arrangement is a win-win for the boys and me. What are you doing here this early anyhow?” As if I had to ask.
“I always come out on Friday for our ride. And date.” He added. The seductive smile on his handsome face could melt steel off a locomotive. That must mean I’m stronger than a train engine.
“Caleb we aren’t dating. And I told you I couldn’t ride tonight.” I contemplate grabbing my egg basket I sat on his truck and making a run for it.
“I don’t see why not. These men are old enough to take care of themselves.” He leans back against his shiny, navy blue pickup, long, slim legs encased in tight designer jeans cross over his boots.
I am not a train engine.
“Perhaps it would be good for you to join us and meet the boys tonight. I’m planning a get to know each other session.”
“They are not boys; Annie, They are not your sons or foster kids. They’re grown men. You need to get that through that thick, cute skull of yours” Exhaling in exasperation he pushes himself upright. “Fine, I will join you.” Clenching his jaw and rubbing the back of his neck he concedes.
I’m on my way in to clean up and put dinner on the table. It will be half an hour or so if you want to visit Loverboy.
“Has he been brushed down today?” His voice softens at the mention of his horse.
“No, it’s been a bit wild today. I’ve only done the feeding today and egg gathering.” TJ is out finishing up in the barn. I think he will be a great asset to me.”
About that time TJ strode out of the barn, peeling off his work gloves as he swaggered toward us.
I hope you are enjoying Annie. TJ and the gang.
