Kate was in the kitchen cooking for the guys. It had been a month since she and Austin had moved in. It was more than she expected. The brothers treated her like a princess, and Austin loved the attention he was getting from all three of them. Zane even let Austin help with feeding all the animals.
"Katherine." Kate shivered. Zane walked behind her to grab her waist. "What are you cooking?"
"Something my mother taught me to make. It's called taco pie. It has tortillas, beans, taco meat, and cheese."
"My mouth is watering already." Zane replied.
"Where is Austin?" Kate asked.
"He's outside playing with Spike."
Kate looked at Zane. "Who is Spike?"
"Austin's new dog."
Zane seemed to always amaze her. "And how did he get that dog?"
Zane smiled. "Well, we went into town this morning to get some suppplies when we saw a woman giving away German Shepard puppies. He took one look at them and he fell in love. I had to get him one. Hope that's okay."
"It's more than okay. He has always wanted a puppy. Thank you." Kate was losing a little piece of her heart to this man more and more everyday. He was truly wonderful. Zane was always doing little things for her and Austin. Kate knew Austin was already looked up to Zane as a father figure.
"Well, I need to get back out there." Zane said.
"Supper will be ready in about an hour." Zane nodded his head and walked outside. A few minutes later, Austin ran in and told her about Spike. He was absolutely estatic. He loved the puppy so much already. Kate told him he needed to feed and water the Spike and then clean up for supper.
About an hour later Kate and Austin were setting the table when Zane, Tyler, and Colton came in.
"Smells good!" Colton said.
All the boys nodded their heads. They were ready to dig in.
They all talked about their day and about what they were doing tomorrow. They finished their food and went to get ready for bed. All but one.
"That was really good. Thank you. I"m real happy you moved in with us. The mood around here has changed dramtically. And Austin is always a good boy, and I"m glad he is here." Kate stared at Zane. He made her insides tingle. She nodded her thanks, and he kissed her on her cheek and wished her a good night.
Kate went to Austin's room to make sure he had his bath and brushed his teeth.
"You ready for bed, baby?"
"Yes, mama. I love you." Austin said sleepily. He was worn out more since we started living here. He got more exercise here.
Kate was kissed him on his forehead and went to leave.
"Mama? Thank you for letting us live here. I love it." Kate looked at Austin. "You're welcome, baby."
Kate then went to her room with a smile on her face. And she went to bed with the thought that her life couldn't get any better.
