This is the family I deserve.
And I will do whatever it takes to keep them.

shows up to take it back.
She holds my hand as we walk, squeezing it a little. It feels natural,
but then again, weird.
This girl—woman, now, I suppose—she has been off limits to me for so
long. It’s really hard to get that out of my head. And sometimes, when I look
at Maggie, I see Indie.
It’s just… weird.
Indie doesn’t lead me to the front porch. She takes me around the side.
“Where are we going?”
“To spy on them, of course.”
“Ahh, I don’t know.”
She stops us on the side of the house in front of the office window.
“Stop being a baby. Don’t you want to be with McKay?”
And this is weird too. Since when do I talk about my feelings with Indie?

“It’s kinda hot,” Indie whispers.
I have to agree. It kinda is. But it’s a lot of other things too.
They are both shirtless. And I’m not gonna lie, Donovan is just as nice
to look at as McKay.
That’s not the only reason it’s hot though. This looks like a real
fucking kiss. McKay is even kissing him back. And then Donovan’s hand slips
down McKay’s chest, then down his ridiculous sixty-four-pack abs and rests on
the waistband of his jeans.
Indie sucks in a little breath of surprise. “Damn. I didn’t think they’d…
Donovan is gripping McKay’s cock through his jeans. And McKay pulls out
of the kiss. I have a moment of hope that he’ll push Donovan away. McKay looks
down at Donovan’s hand as Donovan grips his cock and begins massaging his hand
