Key To My Heart



♣ ♥ ♣ 

AND she didn’t like that she continued to think about it, and him, the rest of the week. She had better things to do with her time for God’s sake, Patti thought with a glower, dragging the rake across the ground as she spread sawdust.

“Aunty Patti, you should have left that for me to do.” Ubaka whined, again, from the door of the poultry house.

He sulked when any other person did his cleaning duty.

“Well, I am doing it. Do something else.” She would have been pacifying, but she was too strung up to be.

“I don’t know what else to do. You’ve been doing everything today.” But Ubaka walked away with his grumble.

Which was his salvation, Patti thought, for she would have hit him with the rake.

She didn’t think of love. In five years she has not thought of love; she’d prohibited herself to doing so. The only love one can count on was the love of family and true friends. And the only men you can count on were ones in your family—and some you can’t quite trust.

It pleased her when Father talked about agape love in his sermons. It solidified her belief in the lack of any other kind of love.

But he hadn’t said he loved her. The reminder thought came with a dark scowl. He’d said he just might fall in love with her when she’d taunted him if he was saying he was in love with her now.

Those words hadn’t much worried her. But his side smile had.

Cheesy words of a city-bred seducer, Patti thought, yanked up the rake and marched to the end of the poultry to spread out the sawdust there… again. Five years she’d minded herself and her heart and now another’s come along and she was fluttering and thinking about love.

“Asking for trouble.” She muttered between her teeth.

That was what she was doing, asking for trouble. And she’d had enough trouble to last any woman three lifetimes.

No, she wasn’t thinking about him, or love, not anymore.
