Colby McKay was pitching hay for the horses when a big Dodge truck barreled up his driveway.
At first, he thought his older brother Cord had come calling, because the man drove like an idiot. He squinted at the driver—while telling himself he did not need glasses—and realized his sister-in-law AJ was behind the wheel of Cord’s truck.
She hopped out. Then his other sisters-in-law, India and Domini, exited the passenger side and the trio started toward him.
Leaning on his pitchfork, he drawled, “Happy as I am to see you all, Channing ain’t here. She took the kids to the dentist in Spearfish.”
“We know,” AJ said. “We wanna talk to you.”
Jesus. He did not like the sound of this. “Okay. What’s goin’ on?”
“Channing hits the big four-oh next week. Are you doin’ anything special for her?” India asked.
Colby pushed his hat back. “I hadn’t really thought about it.”
Sweet, usually shy Domini spoke next. But not to him: to India and AJ. “See? This is why we need to do this.”
Both AJ and India nodded.
“Do what?” Colby asked.
“Throw a surprise fortieth birthday bash for her,” AJ said.
He took a moment to organize a response instead of blurting out that’s a terrible idea. “While it’s really thoughtful of you all to wanna do this for her… surprises ain’t really her thing.” Ah, hell. That was a really frickin’ lame answer.
“And how would you know that? Have you ever thrown her a surprise party?” India demanded. “Have you or your kids ever planned a surprise for her?
You stepped into that one, buddy.
Colby made a show of looking around for someone who wasn’t there. “Where’s my sister? This sounds like one of her schemes.”
“That’s just it, Colby. The responsibility for special occasions in the McKay family shouldn’t always fall on Keely’s shoulders,” Domini said softly.
“So this is basically a courtesy call,” India said. “We are havin’ a big party for Channing next Friday night.”
No sense in arguing then. “You just need me to…what? Get the kids ready, acting as if we’re takin’ her out for supper? Then we’ll meet up with you and everyone else where you’re hosting the party?”
AJ, India and Domini exchanged a look and then laughed. A laugh that sounded slightly evil. “This isn’t a family party. This is just for us girls,” AJ said. “We need you to tell her on the morning of her birthday that you’re gifting her an hour-long massage. We’ll take it from there.”
