Elizabeth: Well that blew up in your face.

Ethan: Thanks, I hadnโ€™t noticed.

Elizabeth: Sorry, bro. You need anything?

Ethan: Nah. But thanks.

Thatโ€™s when I decided Iโ€™d rather drink the night away then continue thinking about it. For the past week, itโ€™s all Iโ€™ve done. I keep replaying our night and the morning after, wondering what wouldโ€™ve happened had I just told her how I felt and that I couldnโ€™t go back to just friends. Iโ€™m mentally and emotionally exhausted.

Grayson, the twins, and Payton are all talking around the bar. Iโ€™m half-listening, too broken to give a shit what theyโ€™re saying. Itโ€™s not until I hear the words โ€˜Is Harper really singleโ€™ from Lukeโ€™s mouth that has me paying attention.

โ€œBecause if she is, Iโ€™m gonna ask her out. She was totally flirting with me the other day,โ€ he continues.

โ€œNot sure thatโ€™s a good idea,โ€ Kane tells him, looking over his shoulder at me. โ€œShe doesnโ€™t date ranch hands,โ€ he adds.

โ€œWhy not?โ€ Luke asks as if heโ€™s offended. โ€œShe too good for a cowboy?โ€

Knox snort-laughs, shaking his head. โ€œNah. Youโ€™re just not the right cowboy she wants. Ainโ€™t that right, Ethan?โ€

They all turn their heads toward me.

โ€œWrong actually.โ€ I shrug, then take a sip of my beer. She donโ€™t want me either.

โ€œThen thatโ€™s it. Iโ€™m askinโ€™ her,โ€ Luke states confidently.ย 

โ€œWhatโ€™s the worst that could happen?โ€

I could kick your fucking ass.
