The downside was that he lived with his parents in a very rural setting, quite some ways on the outskirts of town. [Spell-check isn’t perfect] I don’t have an editor! =================================================== The French Lesson Chapter 1 Ric was a junior in High School, a Tight End on the varsity football team and like most teen males, thought he was hot-shit because he was tall, a Joc, good looking, . He also had a broad smile which he flashed regularly, and his laugh was infectious to the other kids. “Look Yvette, I don’t know what to say about my dad . I told her yes, and it looks like we’ll be getting a guest shortly. “No apparently her school in France has a different schedule than yours, she’s on semester break. During the 4 years they lived in the US, all he could conjure of his impression was that his cousin was annoying! Ric had asked his father to let him drive, but his dad had said no, as he felt Ric didn’t have enough experience to battle the freeways around DFW airport. In return Ric asked Yvette to teach him how to speak French. He didn’t really know why it bothered him so much to hear other guys talking about sex with Yvette. I don’t want you to get into any trouble because of me . Chapter 6 As difficult as it was for Ric to be around his beautiful cousin and not have lascivious thoughts about her, Yvette and he spent a lot of time talking – usually after dinner as they sat on the porch and watched the Texas sun setting. He was wrong, as he hadn’t yet heard all the story. I just wanted to give you a heads-up, dear.” “For how long . Yvette will be here a week from Saturday” his mother explained. Now he’d never be able to talk his parents into letting him go to South Padre Island for Spring Break . When Yvette was 11, she and her mother moved back to France . He sat in the back of his father’s Lincoln Continental Town Car as the miles unfolded outside the window. Looking at her Aunt, Yvette said “I have some luggage” and the four set off for the baggage carrousel. To that question, Yvette replied with a mischievous grin that she would be happy to ‘give Ric French lessons! When Ric put his foot down about the salacious talk regarding his cousin one of the guys had commented that perhaps Ric was ‘tapping her himself” and that was the reason he didn’t like it. One night after a Skype call with her mother Yvette sat on the porch and he could tell she was visibly upset. “My mom threw Stephan out and she and I got in a terrible fight . However, these days it didn’t seem like most of his friends had defined dates; Rather, Ric would take his dad’s pickup truck into town on Friday nights (now that football season was over) and hang out with his friends at the local Dairy Queen.
There was usually a mob of kids there; some were raised on the surrounding ranches like him, and some were regular city kids whose parents had ‘real’ jobs, as Rick thought of them. All you have to do is answer a couple of simple questions and you’re ready to go.Why get bogged down with inconvenient registration pages when you don’t have to?As Carl left the room, Marge gave him a withering stare. What was this about his cousin being in bed with a 22-year-old guy, he wondered? Yvette and his Aunt Barbara came to the US to live after her father’s death and lived in their town. He couldn’t remember exactly what his parents had said some 4 years earlier, but Ric seemed to remember that his Aunt was rich! ‘Just what I need, a rich, whiney, cousin hanging around all summer! Yvette approached Ric about helping her with English (diagramming sentences and English structure) and US History. On a couple of occasions Ric caught a couple of the guys making rude comments about how they would love to get into Yvette’s panties. ” Yvette teared up again, remembering the incident. “The irony was” she continued, “that Stephan was pushing me to have sex with him . “So Ric, as I was saying, your Aunt Barbara is having a difficult time right now, and she asked if Yvette could come stay at the ranch with us for a while. is she staying I mean” was the only thing Ric asked. “She’ll be here at least through the end of summer, then she’ll have to get back to school.” “Isn’t she in school now” Ric wanted to know. Ric remembered Yvette as a bean-pole of a girl, stringy blonde hair and what he remembered most was her being a sullen, whiney little girl. ’ Chapter 3 The drive from the ranch to Dallas - Fort Worth International Airport was long and the day was unusually warm for early April. I need to pull my weight around here” Yvette smiled back. These were obviously things she hadn’t taken in France. Ric had told them forcefully not to talk that way about Yvette. but I do appreciate you defending my honor.” As she finished, Ric was sure he saw her blush. “Well” Ric said after a long pause, “that sucks getting caught by your mama, but lots of girls in these parts are having sex with their boyfriends by your age.” Ric was trying to defuse the fact that she was obviously very traumatized over the incident. Ric’s other nemesis was that he lacked self-confidence and was what most people considered ‘shy’.
