“Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. ”
(5 star review)


I started this story a few weeks ago and I hope you’re enjoying it so far. I’m not sure where it’s heading, so any comments / critique is more than welcomed. Jesse, the Park Ranger, found a dead kangaroo last week, with a little joey still inside – alive.

Enjoy ♥

Jesse blew out a long breath as he rubbed his hands over his face. It wasn’t the first time the he found a dead kangaroo with the joey still alive, but that didn’t make it any easier. He kneeled and inspected both mama and child. The little joey was looking good considering the situation. Letting out another sigh, he stood and returned to the car where he opened the door on Zoe’s side.“I was hoping Zoe would be able to help me.”
Both, Lexie and her daughter, stared at him. “How?” Lexie asked with some suspicion his her voice.
He nodded, knowing he should’ve explained himself more. “The kangaroo is dead, but there’s a little joey still alive inside the pouch.” Their faces relaxed and something like sympathy took over. “If Zoe could sit at the front with a few blankets and hold on to the little fella until we get to your car.”
The girl’s eyes beamed as she nodded while unbuckling at the same time. He’d known the favour would be an icebreaker with the young girl, or at least he’d hoped so.
“Will that be okay?” he asked Lexie.
“Of course,” she replied with a smile.
He wasn’t able to move aside fast enough for Zoe to swap to the front. With a chuckle, he stepped to the back of the car, opened the boot, and retrieved a few blankets which he gave to Zoe. Then he returned to the joey and carefully took him out of the pouch before placing him into the blankets on the girl’s lap.
“Keep him nice and warm,” he explained. “Joeys need lots of warmth.”
She nodded eagerly as she carefully wrapped the little animal into the blankets. “He’s so tiny. Will he be okay?”
“We’ll take him to the animal shelter and they’ll look after him. He looks in good shape, I’d say his chances are better than average.”
Lexie moved to the middle of the back seat and leaned in. “Are we allowed to touch him?”
Amused by the two hovering over the joey, he nodded. “I’ll be two minutes. Just have to move the mama a little further off the road.”
“Take your time,” Lexie replied without looking at him, her full attention on the little survivor.

Jesse helped Lexie and her daughter into the car and then slid behind the steering wheel. While he started the engine, he considered to start a conversation, but decided against it. Nothing personal, but it’d been a busy day and he was too tired to come up with anything to say. So they drove quietly along the forest road. It didn’t take him long before he located the dead kangaroo further up the path. Shaking his head, he knew straight away that it was a hit and run incident, with the driver leaving without moving the animal. He slowed and parked in front of it.
“I’ll be a couple of minutes,” he explained, looking at Lexie via the mirror.
With a slow nod, she asked, “Is it dead?”
He swivelled in his seat to face her. “Put it this way. I hope it is, otherwise I might have to put it down.”
The expression on her face told him that she wasn’t fond of the idea either. Neither was he. In one quick movement, he turned, opened the door, and got out. It took him only a few steps to get to the kangaroo. The animal was dead all right, but when he stood right next to it, he looked right into his next problem.
The little joey inside was still alive.

Jesse Parker dragged his hand through his hair. There had been so many things wrong with the situation in front of him. The fact that the young girl had stopped him in the middle of nowhere didn’t sit well with him, but on the flipside, he was glad she had, because organising a search party wouldn’t have been on his favourite things to do for a Friday afternoon either. God knows if anybody had noticed that they’d been gone for a while, considering they were new in town. He made a mental note to ask Melody about the two. She’d given them the directions to the Cook Waterfall carpark, he was sure she’d know a little more about them.
And then there was the mother, who despite the shortage of breath and the obvious lack of fitness did something to him, he wasn’t sure how to handle or even interpret.The mother. He didn’t even know her name.
Holding out his hand, he said, “Jesse Parker. Nice meeting you.”
She looked up at him and a slow smile spread across her face, but she ignored his hand. “Nice meeting you, too. More than nice, if I may say so. I’m Lexie and this is my daughter Zoe.”
Sliding his hand into his pants pocket, he turned to look at Zoe. “I’m not lecturing you, but please promise me not making a habit out of stopping strange cars.”
The girl nodded enthusiastically. “Promise.”
“Okay. Let’s get this roadkill off the road and then get you back to your car.”
