Jude stood glaring at his brother.

Drake sat on his horse glaring down at Jude.

"You could never be happy with what you had."

Drake snorted. "You had everything. What was there I could be happy with?"

"I was to inherit the title, Drake. Everything else was divided equally between us. You couldn't have found happiness with that?"

"I was not to inherit the title because of something I had no control over. Why should I be left out just because you happened to be born before I?"

"You weren't left out, Drake. Father always saw to it that you never were."

"I'm tired of being the second child. I will be first."

"Even if it means my death?"

"Especially since it means your death. I've waited a long time to watch you die."

Bliss, having heard enough to understand what was going on decided that it was time she started managing this scene. Taking a deep breath, her expression changed to one of complete pain and misery as she clutched her stomach, fell forward, and began moaning in a way that would have terrified the most unattached person.

"What is the matter with you?" Drake hollered over her moaning and groaning. He tried to shake her but it only resulted in her sliding to the side of the saddle. She was dead weight, it was only Drake's arm that kept her from falling.

Drake clutched the horse with his legs as he fought to keep his hold on the girl. He couldn't lose her! If things got sticky she would be their ticket out. He tried to pull her up but she was no help and gravity kept pulling her down.

The horse, spooked by the groaning and commotion that he couldn't see, started to to prance. Growing agitated, his movements became more pronounced as he was determined to lose the two people on his back. Drake tried to hold on, but with Bliss being pulled by gravity to the ground, the horse causing a fuss, it wasn't long before Drake's legs lost their grip. Bliss and Drake landed in an undignified dusty heap. Bliss continued to moan and squirm as she clutched her stomach.

Jude, recognizing a distraction when he saw one, ran and grabb

knock some sense into this thick head." Jude chuckled softly. "That lady is very good at making a point."

"She always has been."

Six months later.

Dear Mama, I wish you and papa were with me today. Today is the day Jude will make me his wife. I always knew when I came out west so many months ago that something would happen here that would change the course of my life. I just didn't know that it would be Jude.

Aunt Belle is just as happy as can be. She never had any children of her own you know. She is rising to the occasion nicely. I just miss you. My dear mother and father. Would you be proud of me? Would you approve of Jude? Cullen assures me the answer is yes to both questions.

Aunt Belle says I must hurry now, or I will be late. Just think mama, when I write you next I will be Mrs. Stefon Jude Ridry. A duchess, even. But that doesn't compare to being with the man I love for the rest of our lives. I love you, mama.

Your Faithful Daughter, Bliss
