"No mama I don't want to. I said.
"You are not being asked, your Aunt lost her husband, and son in that accident and she needs your help." My mom told me.
"I don't know anything about a horse ranch, and I can't even ride a horse. I am kinda scared of horses. I said.
"Well you got all summer to learn to ride, and ride well. So get packed your plane leaves in the morning." Mom said.
I was mad as hell they had no right to force this on me I wasn't qualified to be much more than a flunky on my Aunt's ranch. But I did as I was told, as tight as money was, it would also ease the family budget here at home. Now would be the time to speak about me, my name Curtis Grey, I go by Curt though the only time I hear Curtis is if I make my mom upset like I am now, by not wanting to move in with her sister. At my size at 6'4" and 265 pounds with black hair and blue eyes. I am considered perfect to help out at the ranch.
I did the High school football thing and was proud but had no real interest in going any farther, as last year a teammate and a friend of mine got hurt and was trying to recover just to walk again. Tom was trying to walk but he was weak and it looked as though it would not get to much better for him. But as luck would have it his family was comfortably well off as his father was a business owner. The only work I could get steady so far since graduating high school was the local temporary service jobs from several agencies. From my parents point of view I was helping a family member as well helping both my parents and lastly me. While I may have been helping to pay bills I was still a drain on the family finances. And I liked my Aunt way too much for my own good.
I was on the first plane headed to some hole in the wall in Texas, some place I truly didn't want to be. It wasn't that I was lazy or didn't want to help, but I had a mad crush on my mom's little sister, plus I am a city boy through and through. A world without TV, internet, my few friends, girls I was wishing I had the nerve to speak any words spoken in the English language. I'm no Boy Scout type, and I surely ain't the outdoors type, roughing outside to me was talking junk out with my friends in the front yard after dark.
My plane just landed I hope to get back home with my dignity intact as my hidden lust for my Aunt was something I don't expect to hide from her long. Looking at my Aunt was looking at Jennifer Aniston, only she wasn't an actress she worked out meaning she had more muscles on her frame than her actress twin. She worked hard at the ranch with my Uncle and my cousin before they were killed by trucker asleep at the wheel, seven months ago.
I gathered up my bags and sat outside the Airport waiting for my Aunt Gail Grey-Marsh. Man it was hot here I wanted to just melt into the pavement, the sign said 98 degrees, and I was in the shade. To me all I was missing was the shoulder pads and the helmet to feel alone in this heat.
My Aunt Gail pulled up shortly after I got out there in a brand spanking new Ranch King, crew cab, 1-Ton dually. I stood up and turned to start grabbing my gear Aunt Gail helped me, as we put my gear in the back seat, to break the ice I asked as we got in the truck I asked Aunt Gail to please turn the heat down as it is hot around here. Well that broke the ice right away as she started laughing complete with tears, an Airport cop came by and told her we had to move. She had got some control back, until she looked at me and started all over again.
After a few more minutes we pulled off headed for the ranch. On the edge of town she stopped and got some lunch as we were about an hour and a half away from the ranch. On the way to the ranch we made small talk catching up with each about things since we last saw each other at the funeral. Gail let me know that the Trucking Company settled with her nicely, and combined with the Insurance policy she was set for life. Gail said she enjoyed the ranch and as she was hands on. But asked for me personally as a way to help both of us out, as she needed a worker, and I needed a job. Gail was explaining what my duties would be what I would be paid and so forth. Letting me know we would get some help from other ranchers as needed if we needed it, but we were on our own for the most part.
She also told me about a small dump truck she had. I would be loading to take the manure to area farms as they all used it for their compost piles for their gardens. While it wasn't a way to get rich it did add to the bottom line, and it was a way to get rid of it off the ranch. I was going to learn to milk a cow also;as well as feeding and brushing the horses. Gail said to drop the Aunt part as we would be working so closely together. As we neared the ranch, Gail stopped by the ranch next door to get her daughter Lucy. At six months old, she still demanded a lot of Gail's attention. Gail introduced me to Peggy Anderson her friend and her twenty-three year old daughter Jill, Peggy's sons and her husband were out in the fields doing a day's work. Peggy told Gail she was glad I got there to help as others around here were getting busy with their own work to do. As Gail knew how ranches and farms go around here she knew that these are busy weeks in this community.
Gail needed the help and it would ease her needing so much help from the neighbors. As the women in the area were getting a little concerned about a young widow all alone was not a good thing, as sooner or later a man might get ideas he shouldn't. But after seeing me she no longer had those worries as I was big enough to keep men from getting stupid thoughts, or at least acting on them.
Now Jill was another matter, I liked her looks while trying not to stare. Looking at Jill I see Jessica Simpson thus I was suddenly glad I had to come here, and that she was right next door. Well, a half a mile away. As I was going to be here a while I excused myself before I did something to poison the water around here, as I wanted to get to know Jill Anderson if she was still single.
As I was walking out the door my Aunt was telling them the joke at the Airport about the heat, as I wasn't so used to this kinda heat. Peggy asked what I was going to do when it really gets hot around here. I didn't hear the answer but I did hear the laughter that soon followed said question. I did get a some good news while I was at Peggy's I found out that this little whole in the wall did have both internet and Satelite TV. That would be of some comfort for this long summer.
We left to head home, Gail put Lucy in a stroller to show me what needed to be done this evening. She went in to start dinner while I fumbled with feeding the horses. She had given me a walkie talkie to help me as this is my first time at this.
When I came back in I washed up, walked in the living room, and saw my Aunt feeding my cousin. Her shirt was unbuttoned one side was covered and Lucy was blocking the other side so I couldn't see anything. She talked to me about everything I had done so far. After Lucy stopped drinking my Aunt got up and put her to bed. When she came back her shirt was still unbuttoned but her bra was closed up.
"Listen Curt you are about to see horses breeding daily, so seeing me breast feeding Lucy will be tame at some point." Gail said. I seriously doubted that as I doubted seeing human titties would never be tame. "You are no longer in the city. Things are slightly different out here than you are used to. It is just you and me here so you are the man of the house, because you are the only man here in the house," Gail said.
When she stood up so did I as I wanted to run out the door, Gail stopped me and gave me a quick kiss on the lips and went to get dinner. Lost was an understatement I didn't know whether to go or stay when she came looking for me I was still in the same spot she left me. She came in, and took my hand and led me to dinner. After we cleaned up it was off to bed. As we parted she gave me another kiss, no tongue but it lit my fire. Needless to say I had sex with myself, before I could sleep that night.
Four-thirty AM came entirely too early for me. I came awake as Gail got into bed and spooned with me. "I have to feed Lucy she is awake now while I do that you get dressed and we will start your first day. I turned over and she hugged me and kissed me this time it turned into a very short make out session, and then she was gone; leaving me to have more sex with myself.
The morning went quickly after learning to milk the cow; I don't know what all she did as I was mucking out the stalls. After the second one the smell was no longer the issue it was at the first one but after twenty of them I knew I hated this job.
After lunch Mike Wilson brought two Mares by to be bred to one of Gail's stallions. Corky knew his business as he was ready to go when the time came, Mike watched the first pairing of the first mare, the second mare wasn't quite ready yet. He left knowing another mating would happen this evening and the last mating early in the morning.
Jill came over to get the fresh butter Gail had churned while I was brushing down the horses and giving them their afternoon feeding. Jill came out where I was, lord have mercy the cutoff shorts she was wearing well the flame was lit again I needed to get on with some kind of romance before I hurt myself seriously.
