The woman here to adopt a dog was busy petting a sweet three-legged mutt.
Meanwhile, Tiffany Mills stood in the corner of the room, her eyes scanning
the bulletin board with photos of cats and dogs and a few of our newest
residents awaiting adoption.
I knew Tiffany Mills. She’d been way out of my league in high school.
She still was. She glanced over at her friend Alice before her eyes lifted to
mine. I felt the shock of her attention and a fiery jolt from her gaze. She
crossed over to me, the heels of her cowboy boots striking, almost defiantly,
on the tiled floor.
She was wearing a pair of leggings with a silky blue blouse that only
brightened her already startlingly blue eyes. A lightweight down jacket
topped off her ensemble. She stopped in front of me, peering up as she lifted
a hand and brushed back her dark glossy hair.
Fuck me. If I thought Tiffany was beautiful in high school, she was
simply stunning now. She had a spray of freckles on her cheeks that I’d never
“So,” she began as she studied me. “You’re running the shelter now?”
I nodded. “Well, it’s my mother’s baby.” My chest pinched a little as I
added, “She’s recovering from double knee replacements, so I’ve been
“Oh, I’m sorry. Will she be okay?” Tiffany asked, her gaze softening.
“I hope she’ll be okay. She’s convinced she’ll be bionic after this, so…” I
“Both at the same time?” Tiffany’s eyes widened.
I shrugged, my lips twisting slightly. “I’m not so sure it’s the best plan.
She said since she was resting anyway, it made more sense to do them
“It’ll be a few months before she can deal with this again.” I gestured
vaguely around the room and toward the hallway where the kennels were.
“Oh, well that makes sense. But it sounds like she’ll be okay?” Tiffany
“I may have to tie her down so she doesn’t get on her feet too early, but
yes, she’ll be fine.”
“When do you start with the hotshot crew?” Tiffany asked. Her eyes
flicked to Alice who was still petting the dog. I’d just told her and Alice that I
was taking a position on the crew with Tiffany’s brother.
“Next week. I take care of the feedings here morning and evening. My
mom has tons of volunteers who help out as well, so it won’t be too busy
when I’m working.”
Tiffany cocked her head to the side. I tried to keep my eyes focused on
hers, but my attention was drawn downward by motion. Her fingers were
sliding back and forth on the hem of her silky blouse and her foot tapped on
the tile. I sensed the nervousness emanating from her, and I wanted to tell her
not to worry. About what, I had no clue. I forced my eyes up.
“So you’ll be on Chase’s crew?” she prompted.
“Yup. I just saw him this morning. We worked out together.”
She waggled her brows. “Hotshots do have to stay in shape.”
My lips tugged into a smile. “We do.”
