Nineteen years has passed since Cassidy had skidded off the road and into Steven Walkers life. Her body battered and her leg broken, she had been looked after by him on his ranch and soon they fell in love only to be attacked by an old lover and the jealous son of a cowboy, then she found out she was pregnant with twins, his twins.

Now nineteen years later she stood looking out at the ranch's large window down at the same Steven Walker whom she still loved with all her heart as he stabled a young filly he'd just bought. His son now grown to a man walked beside him, looking just as hansom as his father. Dark hair framed his chiselled chin and blue eyes, his body was just as toned and tanned as his fathers. Cassidy sighed looking to Steven and smiling as he smiled back to her. She had been wondering when or if she'd be a grandmother any time soon, Jessica had gone to collage, Jacob had joined the marines until he'd finished his tour and chose to take time off to help around the ranch for a year and he was doing a good job too.

Cassidy moved from the window and headed to the kitchen to start supper knowing the guys will be hungry when they finished. After several hours she felt strong arms wrap around her waist and she smiled. “ Smells good Cassidy” she heard Steven say as he kissed her neck gently. “ Jacob will be in soon, he's just feeding some of the horses.” Cassidy nodded and started to plate up as the other hands walked in each smiling and taking off their hats as she dished up the food for them. The last to enter was Jacob who walked over and kissed her cheek as he sat down next to her. The Talk around the table was that of horses and cattle but Cassidy didn't mind.

“ You know the dance is coming soon.” she said softly and looked at Steven with a smile. That had been the day he had married her, secretly. Steven looked up at her and smiled taking her hand in his.

“I know and I have plans for us that night.” He told her this made her smile. “ nineteen years and I still love you just as much as I did that day I found you.” He kissed her much to the oo's from the ranch hands this made her smile and blush again.

“mum, dad, please, we're eating here.” came Jacobs voice as he picked at his food “ oh by the way looks like a storms coming in over the west pasture, I'll check again later could be a bad one” he said finishing his food and placing the plate in the washer.

Later that night Cassidy looked out at the dark clouds that rolled slowly towards them she could see flashes of lightning streak across the sky and she began to worry. “Relax, he'll be fine” Steven said as he pulled the curtains across each of the large windows to hide the bad weather. They had just settled down when they heard a loud screech of tyres followed by a loud explosion. Both grabbed there jackets as the ran for the door there a few miles down the road was an orange glow. Jacob pulled quickly to a stop in his pick up.

“ James and Scott are on there way already I'm heading out to help, dad.” He said as he peeled off down the road.

 

Jacobs POV

He drove the pick up down the road as fast as he could several men clung to the back of it , soon he saw the orange flames that seem to dance on top of an over turned car a small child sat crying in the middle of the road dirty, wet, battered and bruised and calling out for her mother.

“Its okay dear we'll get her.” He told her and motioned for James to wrap her in blanket and put her in the pick up as he moved to the car he pulled open the door and saw the woman laid against the steering wheel her head was hit hard. “ okay Ma'am your okay?” he said and reached in to undo her belt as he pressed his chest against hers to hold her in place “ I know I should leave you but the cars on fire and we got to move you” he heard a groan and was glad she was alive. James appeared at the sun roof and looked in .

“Hurry Jacob it could blow any minute” he said

Jacob looked at the front then down at the woman he reached down her legs and felt a large piece of metal dug deep into it. Now grasping it he pushed it so it would brake then slid her out quickly the metal still in her thigh. Now with her in his arms he walked to the truck the girl looked at him and he felt the heat intensify kneeling with his back to the car cradling the woman the car finally exploded behind him making the young girl call out for her mother even more. Getting to his feel still carrying the woman he walked to his truck.

“She's alive, don't worry, we'll take care of you both, I'm Jacob that's James whose driving” He said and slipped in beside the girl who he now could see was no older than three or four years old. The woman coughed and grasped his shirt “ see she'll be okay, Hey do you like cookies my mum just made a fresh batch of cookies.” He talked to her all the way to the ranch house by the time they arrived she was smiling and laughing with James. Pulling up James sounded the horn and several more hands ran out to help.

 

Cassidy POV

Cassidy stood and watched on the porch the tail lights disappear into the night. It was several hours later and Cassidy lay on the couch half asleep when she heard the sound of a car horn and sat bolt upright as Steven stopped by her. “Go ” she said quickly kissing him as he left to the sound of a horn being sounded franticly from outside. she dove to open it wide a she saw Jacob carrying some one wrapped in a blanket.

“ she's hurt bad mum” he said showing a gash with a piece of metal stuck in the young woman's leg covered in mud and blood that he now held in his arms .

“Okay, Jacob spare room, Steven call doc” she chuckled “This must have been how you felt with me” she said and he nodded as he kissed her cheek and moved to the phone. Cassidy followed Jacob up the stairs and flicked on the light to the spare room. “Okay lay her down, lets clean that wound for doc.” she had just finished cleaning it when doc entered.

“Has she woken at all?” both shook their heads “ okay, men out, Cassidy stay I'll need you to assist me, that metal has to be removed..”

Soon the wound was clean and stitched closed and she lay sleeping on the bed covered by the comforter, her leg bandaged and elevated by two pillows. Doc headed down to the kitchen to grab some food while Cassidy pored some water and placed the glass beside the bed knowing how thirsty she had become when she woke. As she placed it the door creaked open and the young girl walked in. “ mummy?” she said softly tears started to form and Cassidy walked over to her .
