Wednesday Whisper ~ Breaking All the Rules

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019

Alyse began to shake her head. “I don’t think that’s fair, not when the other pilots aren’t here.”

“Honey, that’s because Wild has no interest in any of the other pilots. He’s picked you. You’re family now.”

“Wh…what?”

Sarah laughed gently and lowered her hand from her cheek to take Alyse’s hand. “I knew one of my son’s was after you. The fire in your eyes and the way he’s trying really hard not to say anything as he stands over there, tells me it’s Wild. I’m glad to see he’s finally settled down. More grandkids is always a bonus.”

When Alyse’s gaze widened he stepped forward. “Mom.”

She shrugged without repentance. “Just calling it like I see it. Glad to see you made it, Wild.”

He kissed his mom and she walked out of the room whistling under her breath. Then he focused on Alyse. She looked positively stricken.

Wild reached out to touch her. “Are you okay?”

“No.” She stepped away from him. “I just had your mother…I can’t, nope, just can’t. I need to leave.”

“I just got here, sweetheart, where are you going?”

“Not in the mood, Wild.”

He held up a hand. “Okay, I’m sorry. My mom can be a bit straightforward in her speech. Don’t let it get to you.”

“Don’t let it get to me? She basically told me she’s waiting for me to pop out some grandkids for her.” She worked her jaw. “I work for this company, do you have any idea how it feels to have the mother of my boss tell me that?”

So he’d not thought about it that way. “Look, I’m sorry about that.”

“Right. Sure you are. You’re so used to having things your way, I’m sure you were really concerned how telling your family we slept together was something you gave a damn about.” She slashed a hand through the air. “I mean, why stop with the night in Belize. Did you also tell them about the night I ran into you here before my first flight with D.A.R.K. and all the sex we had then, or was that for your next family dinner?”

Lord, her fire, it had him so ready to do things to her that had no place for his family to even be in earshot. He sensed them behind him, listening avidly.

“I didn’t no,” he said, working hard not to smile. “I do believe, however, you just informed them of that.”

Color leeched from her skin and she looked around him, eyes growing wide again. “Shit,” she muttered. “I’m leaving.” Lifting her chin, she took a deep breath. “Thanks for having me.” She skittered to the door like a fawn running from something that scared it.
