" Several nearby personnel eyed them warily and moved away at a faster pace. I just want to help." He saw the wary look cross the lined face. or worse, on the battlefield, trying to keep her on the sidelines rather than where she'll do the most good in battle."Beach finally broke in. the one person who never shirks his duty, no matter how tired, no matter how distasteful the duty might be? Plus, you don't seriously think that Hawk doesn't realize you and Courtney are dating, right? He's never said anything about Snakes and Scarlett, plus he's never said word one against Flint and Jaye.. but.." Again Beach barely got a word out before his fellow Ranger started in again."So you're going to keep dating her, right? "It's not exactly a secret that you are all but clueless when it comes to dating. "Beach managed to look sulky and looked down at his hands. Hand-picked over all the other men he could have chosen.. He just ignores things he doesn't need to deal with. Technically the rank gap between them means they shouldn't be dating, but that's never stopped those two.""Yeah.. Women like to talk these things out so they know you're on the right page with them. this way you'll make brownie points by talking and planning and being sensitive and caring. "Long as there's a GOOD reason..."End Chapter Well good thing Stalker cares enough to have a man-to-man talk with Beach. It's not like you can be her lover while you're training.. And that means that when you get back to base, you'll have to walk a really thin line of still being Sergeant major while you have to be Wayne for her too.

He saw the larger Ranger twitch several times as he spoke. Nice to know Ah'm such a low dog to go and fuck some girl and lead her on." His glare blazed over at Stalker who almost stumbled. Appreciate that."The run came to an end at just that moment and the drill dismissed them. His eyes fixed ahead of them as he continued to run along the sidewalk, the sun finally beginning to creep up over the buildings. Stalker still looked grumpy but now he was glaring at various Rangers he knew. "You can't just think you'll dump that woman when the week is done.""Ah ain't dumpin' no one." Beachhead seethed for a moment. Ya think Ah just wanted to use her damned body and toss her aside when it's inconvenient. Stalker tried to step up to Beach Head but was ignored. I didn't.."Instead of listening, the burly Sergeant major took off at a jog. "Takin' another couple miles.." As soon as he was clear of the group, he sped up into a ground eating lope to leave everything behind. any more than you can outrun me." He watched Beach's face go stony. BH/CG Beach must decide if he wants this relationship. The number of men was about the same while the individuals had changed somewhat. Chapter 26Beach Head struggled to keep his expression neutral while he ran in formation with the rest of the group of Rangers.
