Rauschers - Round 24
Patrick glanced over at Madison. "Oh yeah?"
Sabrina scoffed. "No way! You're just begging for trouble."
Patrick shrugged. "Suit yourself. I'll be the garage."
"Congratulations!" Madison said happily when he walked back in.
"What?! Why?!" he asked, surprised.
Madison hugged him tight and kissed his cheek. "Your promotion, of course. I'm so proud of you baby."
Patrick hugged her back, but felt his stomach drop to the floor.
"Man, I tried my hardest & Mindy just turned me down flat," Paxton grumbled.
"Ah, too bad. Maybe I should give it a shot. Got anyone else on the line?" Shawn asked.
Paxton grinned. "Actually, things have been heating up with Abbey."
"Hey! What the hell Shawn!"
"She's my sister, Paxton!"
"Everyone is someone's sister, Shawn. You don't think Mindy has a brother that would kick our asses if he knew what we were planning?"
Paxton shrugged. "We'll see. She's a grown girl. She can make her own decisions."
"Paxton! Shawn! Get out here," Abbey called from the main room. "Mackenzie's blowing out the candles!"
Shawn followed behind Paxton, still annoyed that Paxton was toying with his sister's feelings. When he got in the room, he saw how Abbey immediately smiled at Paxton. It made him want to put a fist in Paxton's face.
Paxton was so intent on breaking through Mindy's defenses that he didn't see Shawn making the move on his sister...
Smiling, she gazed up into his eyes.
Wait a minute... something was wrong.... He wasn't smiling, Mackenzie thought worriedly. "Did I do it wrong?" she asked anxiously.
"Be sure to tell your brother turn about's fair play."
Mackenzie tilted her head. Paxton? Why was he talking about Paxton?
"How can you just toy with a girl's heart like that?" she accused.
Paxton reared back. Man. Everyone was busting his chops today! First Shawn.. now Mack! "What the hell, Mack! Where's that coming from?"
Mackenzie wiped a tear away. "Shawn says to be sure to tell you turn about is fair play. I guess you toyed with Abbey's heart & he toyed with mine!"
Mackenzie watched them wrestle on the floor & shook her head in disgust. Neither one of them were worth it. Quickly, she ran to her room.
