“Shall we look for a pretty shell for you to give to Grandma the next time you see her?” Sienna asked as they made their way along the beach after a quick swim in the bay.

They’d ended up having lunch with Frankie, and the boys had had to be pried apart with promises of another play date when Lacey had arrived to collect her son.

“Okay, but I don’t think she likes them,” Caleb said.

Her senses went on alert at the hint of hurt in his tone. “Why do you say that? I’m sure she loves them.”

He shrugged and didn’t say more.

“Well, let’s see if we can find a special one anyway.”

“Okay.” The little boy looked down at the ground intently as they walked slowly along the sand.

Anger bubbled inside of her and Sienna took a couple of deep breaths so it didn’t explode. No way would Shannon’s mom not appreciate the gesture of the grandson she so desperately wanted.

Sienna loved when Caleb presented her with a shell. She’d saved them all in a box on the top shelf of her wardrobe.

The next time they visited she was going to watch Glenda’s reaction to the gift of a shell.

“Sienna!” She turned at the sound of her name and spied Aaron striding down the sand toward them. He was dressed in shorts and a t-shirt so he hadn’t come to the beach for a swim.

Had he been looking for her?

A different type of warmth flooded through her. This warmth could cause her as much trouble as the anger she’d been feeling moments before.

Her attraction toward Aaron had grown immensely from the little bubble it had been when she’d been living in LA.

“Hey there,” she said when he neared. The wind had mussed up his hair, giving it a just out of bed look.

It was a look she’d like to see in person.

“Hi, Caleb, you look busy. What ya doing?”

Her son’s sandy hand slipped into hers and she gently squeezed it, assuring the boy everything was fine.

“We’re looking for a pretty shell to give to Grandma, aren’t we?” she responded.

He nodded. “Yeah, but I can’t find one.”

“Can I help?”

Her head shot up at Aaron’s offer.

“What you don’t think I can do this?” he asked, laugh lines crinkling around his eyes. “How about a challenge, Caleb?”

“Huh?” the little boy asked, clearly not understanding what the word challenge meant.

“What Mr. Madison is suggesting is like a race.”

“A race? I can run really fast I’d win.” Caleb enthused, his apprehension at Aaron’s presence disappearing.

“No not a running race, although I’m pretty sure you could beat me.” Aaron smiled as he stooped so he could face the child, the action bringing him close to her. “How about you find a nice shell for your grandma, and I’ll find one for Sienna. If you find it first, we’ll get an ice cream. If I find it first, we’ll still get an ice cream.”

The tendrils of desire that had begun to weave through her at Aaron’s appearance, expanded until they consumed her at his sweet gesture.
