“I have a spare ute you can use for the next few days so you’re not stuck up here. I’ll bring it by tomorrow.” He turned to leave but stopped. “And good luck with Toby. You’ll need it.”

How was he supposed to answer? He didn’t know so he left the room without replying.
He blew out a breath and stopped at the touch of her hand on his arm.
“I was taught manners, but I’m dead on my feet. It’s been a long day and this…” She waved her hand a little. “…is not what I expected.” Removing her other hand from him, she continued. “Will you stay for breakfast tomorrow morning?”
Slowly raising his left brow, he replied, “Wasn’t part of the deal, but my curiosity is piqued.”
Thanks for all your comments,
