After Brett led Tori to the buffet and piled enough food for Tori and herself, they made their way to Bretts grandmother. There seated in a large chair was Grandma Montgomery. Grammy M, as they called her, was in her mid-eighties and as feisty as she was witty. Both her and Bretts grandfather were both very healthy for their age and in their day made a very handsome couple.
Well Well Well. Now stand up so I can get a good look at you.
Tori stood up to her full height and waited for the quip she was sure to get. My, my, my Look at you. Youve grown up to be quite an eye full havent you. You must keep the insurance companies quite busy? Grammy M gave Tori a very appreciative look.
Im sorry Grammy I dont understand what youre getting at? Tori knew this was going to be good. It always was.
Well honey the reported cases. Isnt it obvious? Grammy winked at Brett, who was leaning against the door jam that was next to where Grammy was seated.
Um no It isnt all that obvious to me. Tori looked to Brett for help.
Dont look at me, heartbreaker, youre on your on. Brett flashed Tori a gorgeous smile and wink.
The exchange wasnt lost on Bretts grandmother. Hmm, Well Ill be. Its about time. Brett grandmother thought. She had always known that the two shared a special bond.
Alright I guess Im going to have to explain . Tori .. the insurance claims that are filed when you walk by. All heads must turn so quickly that peoples necks go out of whack. Grammy M started laughing so hard at the red blush that covered all of Toris face.
Grammy M, youre too much. No there arent a whole lot of claims. But your granddaughter here . She leaned over and pulled Brett over to where she was sitting on the arm of Grammy Ms chair. Opening her legs so Brett could stand between them, she placed an arm around Bretts waist.
Now shes the looker. Shes got them falling all over themselves. Me included. Tori just beamed with love for Brett and Brett gave her an equally loving look in return.
You know girls, I may be an old lady. But I can still spot steam rising 10 paces away. And you two are definitely steaming. So what gives? She gave them both a very knowing look.
Now I know where Uncle Gordon gets it. Nothing ever gets by him. Turning, Tori directed her gaze to Brett. Well honey do you want to tell Grammy or do I?
Id be glad to. Grammy . Brett put her arm around Toris. It gives me great pleasure to announce that Tori and I are dating. Brett bent down and gave Tori a sweet peck on the top of her head. They both looked over to Grammy and waited for a response.
You know girls if the women I grew up with looked like you, I might have considered going the other way myself. Grandma had a very approving look on her face and winked as Toris face turned beet red again. Well dont just sit there, give me a hug?
Tori laughed and let go of Brett so Brett could give her Grammy a hug.
Pointing a finger at her Grammy, Brett gave her the business. You are so bad. She bent down and gave her a hug and kiss but I love dearly.
I love you too pumpkin. Its about time you found someone worthy of you. Grammy M loved all her grandchildren but Brett always had a special place in her heart.
Alright, alright. Let me at her Brett chuckled, then stepped aside. Tori bent down and gave Grammy a big hug as well. Ive missed you Grammy M.
Brett and Tori used to sit with Bretts grandmother for hours playing scrabble or listening to her stories. She was well loved by all. Mainly because she didnt care what anybody thought. When she liked you, she loved you. When she didnt, well lets just say she didnt suffer fools lightly. Brett definitely took after her side of the family. With her blonde hair and green eyes, Brett was the only one amongst her siblings that had this coloring. I guess this is why Tori took to her grandmother so well because she could see so much of her grandmother in Brett. The only difference was Brett loved everyone first and passed judgment later. Even then, she would still give you the benefit of the doubt. What endeared Brett to Tori the most was her loving heart.
Well of course you did. I am a very lovable person. So, tell me what took you so long? I thought you shagged my granddaughter years ago? You two sure looked like you were headed that way a long time ago. What happened? You lost the directions?
Tori was about to lose it. Bretts Grandma was a trip. Tori bent over and whispered something in Grandma Ms ear sending the older women into a fit of laughter. Oh my thats good to know. Well Brett I think youre going to be very satisfied with this one. If shes too much for you, you can send her my way. As they say, youre never too old to try something new!
It was now Bretts turn to turn beet red. No Grandma. This ones all mine and shes definitely not too much for me. If anything, I cant get enough of her. Brett wrapped her arms around Tori possessively. I dont blame you for wanting to try her out. Shes absolutely irresistible. Brett tightened her hold around Tori and they exchanged another loving gaze. Even if I was willing to share, I dont know if you could take her. She might be too much for you. Brett released Tori, bent down, and whispered something in her Grandmas ear. You see she does this thing ...
Really? Isnt that difficult? Grandma M had an astonished look on her face.
Very! And I want you around for a very long time. But you have to admit, it would be a great way to go. Brett waggled her eyes and made a lewd gesture.
Oh yes. I think you are right. Grandma M gave Brett an equally crude gesture.
Excuse me Im right here ladies. Tori was now very embarrassed at being the center of their discussion. She sat there sulking with a very dejected look on her face.
Oh baby, dont be scared. I wont let Grandma hurt you. Brett whipped.
Tori threw her hands up in frustration.
Youre not sorry I told Grammy about us? Are you? Oh look at that pout? Brett loved it when Tori got all vulnerable.
No. I just dont like getting picked on. Tori put on an even bigger sulk and gave Brett her best puppy dog eyes.
Oh baby Im sorry. Did I hurt my babys feelings?, Brett responded.
Tori shook her head up and down. Brett reached over, ran her hands through Toris rich dark hair, and gave her pouting lips a very thorough kissing.
With a happy grin on her face, Tori turned to Grandma M and gave her a dazzling smile. You see .. I know how to get what I want when I want too?
Brett slapped Tori across her belly and replied. Alright wisecracker, Ill get you for that one.
Grammy observed the closeness that seemed to pour out from the two women. The love between them was so evident. Girls, I know I kid around a lot. But I want you to know that Ive always thought you two had something very special. I have been blessed to be married to your Grampy for sixty-eight years. And I would not change a single day that we have shared. Take care of one another and dont ever take each other for granted. I see a lot of happiness in store for the both of you. What you two have is very rare. Enjoy it. ..Now get out of here. If you see that old guy Im married to, send him over. All this talk of love and sex has got me all wound up! She gave them both a hug and sent them on their way.
As Tori and Brett walked away, Tori turned back to Grammy M and mouth the words, Thank you.
Grandma M in return answered with a very warm smile and blew her a kiss.
