Cade escorted her to town and purchased everything on the list - plus a few more items. When she reminded him that he was going over the thousand-dollar figure he had thrown out, he merely shrugged.

"It will be worth the investment."

She wondered what would be worth the investment, but didn't want to wind up in the middle of a feud. Was he trying to show his sister up? Impress her? It seemed totally out of character. Nothing Cade did indicated that he gave a hoot about what anyone else thought.

As they packed the last of the items into the back of his truck, he glanced up at her.

"It's early. Let's go by and take a look at your truck while we're in town. If it doesn't look too complicated, maybe I can fix it."

She stared at him. "I...You don't have to do that." He was already responsible for her food and housing. "I can get it towed to a shop."

His eyes held a touch of humor. "You don't want me to interfere?"

"It isn't that. It's just that...well; it's not your responsibility."

"I know. But it would be nice to know you had a way to get out and do things without fear of taking the only vehicle. I know you feel uncomfortable about driving my truck. You haven't used it once."

"Then I'll get mine fixed. I had no idea it was troubling you." Little did he know that she wouldn't have left the ranch if her truck had been available. The ranch was too beautiful - too interesting and too much like home.
