A Special Treat: A Book Excerpt

              “Wait a second.” Ryan picked up the soccer ball from beside the goal. He knew Max
well enough to know that when he started missing goals, something was up. He turned the
ball in his hands however that didn't stop the amusement in his voice. “You almost kissed
              Max's eyes grew larger as he looked over to his daughter and Grace. They weren’t
paying attention as they chattered happily to each other. He stepped towards Ryan, “Keep it
down. I don't want them to know.”
              His younger brother kicked the ball once and then looked up. He chuckled, “So has it
been too long and you need some pointers?”
              He walked toward the ball and kicked it straight into the goal. It bounced off the
backboard and flew back toward them. Max chuckled, “Trust me when I tell you, I’ll never
come to you for pointers about kissing Amy.”
             “Why? Because you’ve spent enough time doing it?” Ryan retaliated as he jogged for
the ball. Once it was in his footing, he passed it to Max, who passed it back.
              “Yes.” He answered easily. As he realized what he’d said, he cleared his throat. “I
mean, no. That's not-” He exhaled deeply. “What am I supposed to do, Ry?” He felt
completely helpless. He checked on the girls and then turned back around. “I shouldn't be
trying to kiss her. We're not like that.”
              Ryan rolled his eyes, “Oh come on. That's crap and both you and I know it.”
              “What’s that supposed to mean?” He asked. Despite the question, he felt his stomach
tighten. All he'd been thinking of was how pretty she looked and how her eyes sparkled with
laughter as she wiped the melting ice cream from his chin. He remembered how the sun
framed her face. Before he knew it, he wanted nothing more than to cup his hands on her
cheeks and crash his lips against hers.
              “You know exactly what it means.” Ryan said simply. He watched the way his
brother's face changed, eyeing the smile that rested upon it. Ryan surely knew that smile.
“You and Amy have been attached at the hip since Phoebe was born.” He stated. “To be
honest, I'm surprised you haven't kissed her already.”
              “She’s with Jack,” he said quickly. Max looked away and closed his eyes. He had to
swallow before he stumbled over his words.
“That jerk's never even around.” Ry answered just as quickly. “And you know Amy
deserves better.”
