Moudy dropped the spoiled food into the trash can and sighed. "I don't know," he admitted, rubbing the back of his neck. "He's always a little moody after Cheri goes back to Riverview."
Liz glanced towards the stairs. "Poor Jason," she muttered under her breath as she continued with her chores.
Jason fumbled the ball, watching it fall to his feet and come to a rest.
"Getting old, Old Man!" Tommy jeered from across the field.
Jason scowled. "I'll show you old, Rookie!" he snapped, reaching down to grab the ball. "Come on, quick jerking around and let's go practice for the game!"
"Coming Lacie!" Jackson called back, hurrying to her side.
Lacie was impressed. He'd actually hurried up when she told him to, eager to obey! Maybe he wasn't so bad, after all...
Macy frowned, watching her sister lead Jackson away. "Hey! Wait!" she called out, hurrying after them.
Macy nodded, so happy to be included. Lacie rarely let her play with her!
She heard Jackson and Lacie laughing like loons up in the tree house.
Moudy chuckled as he grabbed a pink drink with a heart stirrer and took a sip. "Tastes like apples!" he said with surprise.
Liz was already nodding. "Yup. Apple Martini party drink, Apple Blossom romantic drink, and..." she stared at the last set of drinks on the bar. "Err... apple-something skill drink... I can't 'member the name!" she muttered under her breath.
Moudy put his drink down and stared at Liz with surprise. "Are you juiced?" he asked. Plundering Plumbobb, that was sexy.
"Upstairs, now!" she told him breathlessly. They hadn't made love like a randy pair of teenagers since Jackson had been born!
Why was her twin so mean to her?
He finished his drink, leaving the empty glass on the bar, then headed upstairs to bed.
