“Finals are done. What a load off my mind,” Brad said as Susan nodded in response. “Hey, you worried about the wedding?”
Susan shrugged, “I don’t know if it’s nerves exactly.” Susan looked aro
Stacey escorted Susan and Travis back to Dr. Hanson’s office and asked Susan for a urine sample to verify the pregnancy. After giving the sample to the nurse, Susan was escorted to the room when Travis waited and asked to put on a gown and remove everything else but her socks. Susan laughed because Travis’s eyes got big when Stacey asked her to disrobe. Evidently he had not realized a pelvic exam was part of the initial pregnancy appointment. It was always a good idea to do an initial exam to make sure there were no surprises that could cause issues with the pregnancy. Susan changed her clothing and had a seat up on the exam table with a sheet covering her fr
Travis was quiet on the way home, and Susan couldn’t help but wonder what was going on with him. Pulling into Gannon’s driveway, he parked the SUV and spoke calmly to Susan, “I didn’t want to tell you at the office, but Mom messaged me during your exam and Octavius Ongst paid the bail for all 10 of the hunters. Mom was with Gannon and Cat when she messaged me. She said Gannon is upping the security as we speak.” Travis explained and grabbed her hand in support.
Two days later, Susan could not believe how much had been done in less than two days. Gannon supervised the security project and had put up enough metal posts to attach the motion lighting and security cameras. Signs were also put up at each gate:“This is a no trespassing zone. Our land is protected with weapons and canines. With the price of ammuniti
Five Years PriorOut of breath, Shelby runs into Gannon’s office as fast as her legs would take her. Under her breath she is panting, “oh my gosh, oh my gosh,” as she runs. Even in human form, Shelby was faster than most other non-shifter humans. Turning 180 degrees once through the door, she slams it shut and locks the deadbolt. Finally she pulls down the 2x4 into the brackets that bar the door f
When the High Ridge pack split up and scattered, Alpha Gannon led his family to Minnesota to settle and hide in plain sight. They had been in the Southeastern Minnesota region for the whole five years since they all ran for their lives. Sources say their old pack lands were decimated by fire shortly after they left. Supposedly there was some old dynamite left in the mine nearest their territory and it blew up. They claimed one bundle was unstable and once it blew, all the rest stored there exploded as well. The fire caused, burned down the trees and all buildings on the pack lands until nothing was left. Fires in Alaska are not unheard of, but one of this magnitude so cl
Once Shelby, now known as Susan Bannon, entered college, Kyle was able to help her financially due to his success. A fact Shelby was extremely grateful for, especially considering the extreme cost of an education. Susan was attending college to become a Nurse Practitioner and had told Kyle, “I’ve chosen the name Susan after a famous Native American healer.” Nursing being one of the hardest degrees to obtain, Susan tried not to work more than part-time while attending college. Thus far, she was starting her third year of college and held a 3.75 GPA; this was a fact Susan was extremely proud of.
“So what did you do Chett to cause that pretty little lady to throw water in your face?” Travis asked before he took a bite.Travis sat across from Chett in a booth with his one foot long sub to Chett’s two. Chett being a linebacker could afford to put on more weight. Travis’s position as a wide receiver meant he had to eat a lot of le
Finished with her classes for the day, Susan gathered her belongings and headed for her car. Susan was frustrated with herself that she was still obsessing over Travis. He was most likely a jock and a frat boy. No handsome face was worth putting up with that kind of ego, lifestyle, and likely feelings of entitlement. No, she needed to stop thinking about the sexiest man she had ever met and focus on her college classes and her job. She did not have time for a relationship anyway, and she did
