Picnic on the Beach

“That’s the surprise?” Caroline turned her gaze toward the four men on the dune.
“I won them at the auction, a group date with the Farrell brothers.” Jenny sat back on her haunches, digging her toes in the sand.
“When you said you had a ‘surprise’ for our picnic, I’d no idea…” Sue’s voice trailed off as her gaze traveled over the four handsome cowboys.
“I think they’re looking for me. Be right back.”
Jenny pushed to her feet, brushed sand off her bikini and made her way up the beach.
“Let’s draw straws for first pick.” Mia gathered a few small sticks.
“Maybe they want to pick us?” Sue raised her eyebrows.
“I don’t care which one I get.” Caroline grinned.
“Of course, Jenny gets first pick.” Mia said, her gaze drifting to the hunky cowboys.


Jenny flipped her long blonde hair back over her right shoulder, a nervous habit. As she got closer to the men, she felt their stares sliding over her practically naked body like warm hands. She broke out in goose bumps.
They’re all gorgeous.
When she reached the dunes, the hunk in the ripped jeans tipped his hat to her.
“Ma’am, Whit Farrell. You the lady who won us in the auction?”
Jenny nodded.
“I’m Jenny. I’ve got a picnic and three of my friends over there. Join us.” She pointed to the two colorful blankets laying on the sand and Caroline, Sue and Mia.
“Not sure who won, here, Jenny. Those are three mighty fine lookin’ ladies over there.”
 Whit introduced his brothers to Jenny, then preceded her down the sand. He reached out to her. She gripped his strong, warm hand and glanced over her shoulder to the brothers following.
Guess Whit picked me. She smiled.
