By this point I was clutching my aching stomach because I was laughing so hard, probably something I shouldn’t be doing being that my stitches weren’t healed yet, but I couldn’t help it. That day was too funny, “She started calling you a young pervert, shouting for someone to please remove this hooligan from her sight before she beat you to death with her purse!”
Phillip frowned at me, but I could see the amusement in his eyes, “See what happens when I try to do a good deed for the elderly.” he joked before joining in my laughter. “You better stop laughing before I ignore that ramp over there and push you straight off the curb.” he joked.
Wiping the tears from my eyes I saw that we were now outside, and I took a big breath of the fresh mountain air around me. “Ahhh, I missed this. The fresh air is refreshing.” I sighed.
“Of course it is, I just farted.” Phillip teased.
I wrinkled my nose at his lie, because we both knew that Philips farts were anything but fresh. He laughed at my facial expression before turning to see Mason’s black Escalade pull up in front of us.
Mason got out and walked around the front of the car with a slight grimace on his face at the sight of Phillip, which only made Philip smile brighter. These two were going to be a hand full that’s for sure.
I started to get up out of the chair when two pairs of masculine hands stopped my efforts.
“I’ll carry you…”
“Let me help you…”
They both spoke at the same time, followed by a growl from Mason. “Get your hands off of her!” he ordered Philip.
Phillip had no choice but to back off, mumbling something about overprotective jack something or others. I didn’t quite catch what he said because I was too distracted by Mason’s touch that was sending shivers through my body. By the scowl that remained firmly on Mason’s face, it was clear he had no such problem and heard Philip’s insult loud and clear. “You should know. You’re the biggest one there is.”
Finally picking up on the tension these two males were exhibiting, I knew a distraction was needed. I heaved an overly dramatic sigh, “Boys, could we continue with the insults another time, I’m getting kind of sleepy, which is weird because I just woke up from sleeping for five days straight, but for some reason I want to close my eyes a little more, and you two having this battle of ‘me man hear me roar’ is kind of delaying that, so…”
“Okay, okay we get it.” Phillip stopped my rant.
“Yeah, babe, sorry about that.” Mason offered.
They were both shooting me exasperated looks, realizing how uncomfortable the situation was making me, made obvious by my little rambling bit. They both knew me so well, and when in an awkward situation I tend to rant, and if not stopped I could go on for awhile. They obviously wanted to avoid that, thus meaning my plan for distraction worked.
Mason effortlessly picked me up from the chair while Philip went to open the passenger door. After I was placed inside and buckled up, Mason stepped back allowing Philip to say a quick ’see you soon’ to me before shutting the door. See, they could work together if they tried.
I laid my head against the head rest and shut my eyes, satisfied that my boys were getting along. Then when Mason didn’t immediately come into the drivers side, I opened my eyes to see him staring Phillip down and warning him to keep his hands off his mate, followed by an eye roll from Phillip. They were seriously going to drive me bonkers. Seeing no other solution, I gingerly leaned over the center counsel and honked three times on the horn, startling them from their argument, and giving them the meanest stink eye I could, which judging by their amused looks wasn’t very mean at all.
Finally Mason broke away and came to the car while Phillip shot me one last wink and a wave before heading to the parking lot to retrieve his car.
While Mason fastened his seat belt, I watched the muscles play under his black shirt and couldn’t help but admire the hottness of my mate. He stiffened for a minute, picking up on my lustful pheromones and looked at me with a raised eyebrow before saying, “If you keep looking at me like that, we might break the doctors orders in this very parking lot.”
