I return to my story I started a few weeks back. This is Lexie’s POV again.
A smile tugged on Lexie’s lips. “I’m glad you do. I think we’re going to have a really good time here.”
When her daughter didn’t reply, Lexie turned and looked at her.
“Do you think we could invite Ranger Jesse for dinner one night?”
The last bite of Lexie’s sandwich suddenly stuck in her throat and she coughed. Jesse in her small house. How would she cope?

It’d been a busy day for Jesse and it was late when he finally sat down on his porch with his dinner and a beer. All he wanted was to head to bed, but if his night was going to be anything like the previous one, he’d get little sleep again. The culprit for his sleepless night was one very sexy, shy, mother of one very cute daughter. It took him so much effort not to stare at her all morning as she fed the small kitten. He’d been grateful for the call out. At least it made sense to him now that she had refused his hand when they had initially met. He remembered an old school friend having some sort of skin condition. The poor guy was never allowed to come out for a play in case the skin would break. Jesse pondered about all that for a long while as he watched the ship on the horizon go past. Would that be the reason for Lexie’s lack of people’s skill? A simple rash?
The buzzing of the phone hauled him back from the reverie. Despite having the urge to ignore it, as soon as he saw the name of his sister’s carer, he answered immediately.
“Hi, it’s Karen here. Sorry for calling so late.”
“No problems at all. What’s up? Is Dana okay?”
“She’s okay.” Karen hesitated and Jesse sensed that the opposite was most likely the case, but he waited until she continued. “She had a fall this afternoon when Mario took her to the beach.”
“Fucking hell. He should’ve known better.”
Karen was silent
