Damn Straight

“Sure, you can take care of yourself, right?” Sarah couldn’t quite tell if Evan was being sarcastic or not. But his smile looked genuine when he followed it up with, “You’re pretty strong, aren’t you?”

“Damn straight.” Sarah spoke at the same time as the receptionist.

"Callie, no!"

Why the hell did city life have to be so totally different from the country life she’d grown up in?

The End
