 My Saddle's Waiting, Anastasia Romanos

Valentine's day was… what? It wasn't something he celebrated very often and hadn't intended to make this year any different but that was before Dor got involved. To make a long story short, they'd both agreed to submit LoveMatch profiles and shake up what would have been a day of drinking for something a bit more… classy? Yeah, classy worked. Fuck it, it'd be fun, right? He was pretty pumped to see who and what the site would pair him with and while he wasn't exactly expecting anything, in particular, he never would have guessed the note he'd gotten back.

'Hello, Abel Jensen

Thank you for participating in LoveMatch.com’s Blind Date. After looking through several matches we have found one just for you. 

Dress warm and prepare for a little something different this Valentine’s Day; Mistwood Ranch eagerly awaits your arrival.  Start with a 15-minute riding lesson through 13 acres of tranquil pastureland before heading off on a guided tour of Lochland County’s forest trails. At sunset, you’ll return to a warm country meal lit by romantic candles and a roaring bonfire. 

LoveMatch has the tab. Enjoy your Valentines Day.

Anastasia Romanos  will be waiting for you at 3:00 pm'


Alright then. He'd never been on a damn horse before but figured if he could handle Alice's horsepower between his legs then a single horse shouldn't be a big deal, yeah? Pffft, only one way to find out really and he wasn't one to back down from any kind of challenge so, fuck it, he was going horseback riding! Mean… and if the date went well maybe he'd… wait, no, it was far too early in the date to be thinking that shit. Not that he could help it too much but he knew how to be a gentleman when the need was present and he knew that his momma would never let him hear the end of it if he went and made an ass of himself on a blind date like this. She raised him better than that. Whatever, he'd behave and still have a good time, there was no doubt about that.

The date was scheduled to start at three and he didn't like to be late so he'd planned his shit out to where he and Alice would be there about ten minutes early just for good measure. Dressed in jeans and one of his nicer long sleeve shirts (because he wasn't wearing dress clothes on a fuckin' horse), he reclined lightly against the motorcycle while he waited for his date to arrive. Having already fixed his hair from the helmet and hung his jacket over the windscreen, he eyed the phone in his hand and debated locking it under the cowl but decided to stuff it into his pocket instead; all the while trying to get that Ginuwine song out of his head.

Valentine’s day was something that Anastasia dreaded every year. Last year she was with Nathaniel, but she felt so heartbroken after a while when he left her. It had been a few long six months that she had talked about him. He made her happy and now she was thinking about him for some reason because she didn’t realize that he was probably way out of the country. She didn’t know what he was up to, and frankly she didn’t care anymore. This why she always hated Valentine’s day and would always think of previous ex-boyfriends. Not today though. This year she was going on a blind date with a guy named Abel Jenson and they were going horseback riding.

She had received the note a few days ago, ‘'Hello, Anastasia Romanos, Thank you for participating in LoveMatch.com’s Blind Date. After looking through several matches we have found one just for you. Dress warm and prepare for a little something different this Valentine’s Day; Mistwood Ranch eagerly awaits your arrival. Start with a 15-minute riding lesson through 13 acres of tranquil pastureland before heading off on a guided tour of Lochland County’s forest trails. At sunset, you’ll return to a warm country meal lit by romantic candles and a roaring bonfire. LoveMatch has the tab. Enjoy your Valentines Day. Abel Jensen will be waiting for you at 3:00 pm' She didn’t know how to react as she figured that she would just eventually show up and try to be a good girl for the day. She wasn’t seeing anyone right now, she was just randomly dating. She wasn’t looking for anything too serious if some things happened, it happened. Ana was getting ready for the day as she woke up around eleven am and showered, as she put her on her happy face and grabbed her cell phone, and put it in her purse. She didn’t think twice as she already planned a small lunch at home as she stayed home until two thirty pm. She didn’t think that getting ready for a date would take so long.

She really wanted to look her best. They would possibly be doing dinner together if the horseback riding went well. Ana decided to get an Uber so she would be able to drink a little on the date. She wouldn’t get too plastered since she wanted to remember everything. Ana had a late night last night thankfully she wasn’t exhausted. Her uber was finally at her place after ten minutes and she had grabbed her purse and coat, since it was still a little chilly. She wore something fitted for this outing. Hopefully he would be handsome for her.

Locking the door behind her she went towards the car and greeted the driver, as she closed the door inside. She told them to take her to Mistwood Ranch, most of the locals knew where this was. She hadn’t been here in ages. Since she first moved to Lochland. When she arrived finally, she stepped out of the car and walked towards the stables where she saw Abel and her mouth dropped. But it was dropped open slightly, ‘Wow…’ She bit her lip and walked closer as she walked to him. “Abel? It’s Anastasia…..” she asked for him as she hoped he would be just as stunned as she was.

Living in Lochland his whole life had given Abel a sense of familiarity with the whole town. Mean, shit, things had changed in the six years he’d spent with the Navy but that was kinda fuckin’ expected when near an entire town had up and relocated there. It was fine, not like it really concerned him much and it meant a new collection of people for him to try and seduce. Pfffft, not like it was his mission to bone everyone or anything but he was definitely a ho so the ‘fresh faces’ were nice.

Whether or not Anastasia was new to the town or a local like him he didn’t know, but he knew he hadn’t met her before today. Well, the name wasn’t familiar anyway but when he saw her a drop dead sexy woman walking towards him, he knew he would have remembered her. Nah, a woman that beautiful would have stood way the fuck out in his mind. Of course, he didn’t know she was his date until she spoke but he was already wearing one of his charming smiles.

Abel? It’s Anastasia…” Perfect. After a short pause, he chuckled and extended a hand in greeting as he shook his head lightly. "Sorry, I wasn't expecting someone so beautiful. 'S lovely to meet you, Anastasia." That adorably charming smile still curved his lips, his dark honeyed eyes giving her a lingering once over. In true gentleman fashion, he offered his arm to take if she wanted as he pressed on. "Ready to see what the evening has in store for us?" He asked, tearing his gaze from the woman to glance towards the stables where a horse brayed for attention.

Anastasia stood there quietly with a slight mouth open and she didn’t want to be rude by staring but she had. With a smile on her face she looked directly at him and let a blush creep on her cheeks as he mentioned how pretty she was. No one had ever complimented her that way. “Hmmm yes, of course let’s go….It’s nice to meet you too…” she let out a soft monotoned giggle and accepted his arm as she wrapped her arm around his. She hadn’t been on one of these dates in a long while where things could get interesting. Though, she didn’t really know him very but from the looks of it he seemed like the type of guy that knew his way around the town.

“I hope it’s going to be a good one…..Thank you…for the compliment. That’s sweet of you,” she acknowledged his comment from earlier about her looks. She wasn’t really trying but then again, she had dressed up for the date quite a bit. Maybe he was commenting on her makeup. That was always a good thing. “Did you want to share a horse or ride separately?” she asked as she offered a quite intriguing question as she hoped that it would amuse him more than it had amused her. There would be plenty of things that she would be looking forward too as the night came along. Though, she wondered if he would go on a separate horse.

It took a lot to offend Abel. Shit, no that wasn't really true because if someone knew the right buttons to press it didn't take that much, but those people that did know never used that sort of thing against him so… fuck it. Anyway, staring wasn't rude as far as he was concerned, really he saw it as more of a compliment than anything else. Whatever, if he were being honest, health wasn't the only reason he kept to his fitness routine. Nah, it was so he could get those jaw-dropping looks from women like Anastasia.

She was… fuck, well she was kinda beyond words wasn't she? And she'd looked at him like she might have thought the same and that just pushed his confidence right into the next dimension. The soft pink that painted her cheeks at his words was just the icing on the proverbial cake as he offered her his arm. "Hmmm yes, of course let's go… It's nice to meet you too…" The words, coupled with her giggle, widened his smile as she wrapped her arms around his. Abel wasn't always a gentleman but he knew how to be and she seemed like the type who would like that sort of thing so… naturally, he laid it on thick.

"I hope it's going to be a good one…. Thank you… for the compliment. That's sweet of you." Was it? Maybe, but it was true too and Abel had never been shy about admitting when a woman was stunning. "An evening with you? 'M sure it's going to be great." He assured her with a warm smile. Hell, if all else failed he'd be content to simply watch her for the night… yeah, she was that good looking. It got better with her next question though and he had to stop himself from getting a bit too forward with his answer of whether or not he wanted to share a horse. "We should share, just in case the horse thinks you're too good for me an' tries to take off with ya." Not that he was actually worried about that but… he wasn't about to pass up an opportunity to share a saddle with her either.

With her arm linked around his, he headed into the stables where they were greeted by one of the employees (judging by the embroidered shirt). "Hey! You two must be here for the riding lesson. I'm Becky, I'll be getting you two all set for the trail ride. The freckle-faced red-head spent the next twenty or so minutes helping to saddle a chestnut colored horse with a black mane and tail and then going over the basics of riding.

When it was, finally, time to get on the animal he offered the woman help, though it was probably unnecessary. If she accepted, he'd gently grab her waist and help hoist her upwards so that she could toss a leg onto the other side of the saddle. She'd also have noticed the subtle way he let his hand graze over her rear and down her leg some before pulling back with a charming smile.

Anastasia wasn’t sure what to think now that this date had turned into an interesting one. She didn’t think that was going to be a one man/one-woman horseback riding lesson. This was going to be tough. Ana took hold of his arm and accepted it as she walked closer to him and the horse. There was a rider girl that came up to them and introduced themselves as ‘Becky,’ the teacher before they would ride off the trail together. “Sure, I suppose we can,” she stated as she stood right beside him with the horse as she placed her right leg as she could hoist her left leg over the reigns onto the other side.

There wasn’t much that she could do except wait for him to join her. They were going to go off together alone? Ana was a bit afraid of being along with a handsome man. She wouldn’t know what to do with herself in front of him. They were going to be on a date anyway. Anything could happen, right? Biting down on her lip she patted the horses man to acknowledge that she was on his back. “This will be fun, I haven’t been on a horse in a while…..since I was a teen…..and mind you it was just me by myself,” she resumed as she gasped a little after the graze on her jeans.

He was already getting touchy feeling and she was sure that was not going to happen till later or if anything would happen. Who knows? She could get to know him. Then again there were always those one night stands that she hadn’t had in a really long time. That could only be a suggestion. He seemed like a really sweet nice and interesting guy.

So, he had totally done things way more reckless than climb onto a horse before. Mean, shit, anyone who had seen him ride Alice would have been able to attest to that claim easily enough. He was safe doing those things but he'd been a bit of a daredevil growing up too so, even though this was something new he wasn't horribly intimidated. Even if he had been a tad wary of the prospect, the idea of being so close to Anastasia was more than enough reason to squash those hesitations.

He had been around horses before. It wasn't much, just a few times when he was a child and had visited his uncle's farm. The horses were 'neat' back then and he'd considered pleading to be allowed to ride but his attention was quickly nabbed by a neglected old dirt bike in the shed and that had won out as his preferred activity. No big deal. He could totally fuckin' do this!

After not so stealthily coping a feel from his date, he made sure she was settled and managed to hoist himself into the saddle behind her. There was sad little room there but any excuse to press against his date's ass was perfectly fine by him! "Sorry." A playful apology fell from his smirking lips as he shifted to get a bit more comfortable in the seat and 'accidentally' pressed against her before settling down. "You alright?" He asked as his arms wrapped smoothly around her waist to collect the reigns. "'M not too close?" Pffffft. He knew full well how close he was to her and he was simply eating it up because there wasn't much to be done about it if they were to share a horse, right? Nah, but that was just another reason he was so glad that he'd done this lovematch thing. Feet in the stirrups as shown, he nudged his heels lightly into the horse's flanks to start the animal moving.

Anastasia let out a little chuckle and smiled on the side as she turned her head, so he could see her blush, but it was a tiny blush. “No not at all. Don’t worry. If you get too frisky on the first date, I’ll let you know….” she giggled back this time. She thought he was gorgeous after all in the beginning. She was just wondered how’d they get along if they would later. Holding on tight to the reigns she managed to get a good grip. There wasn’t much to hold on since they were both holding onto the reigns she had to wrap her arms around his since he was gripping onto the front of the horse.

And they were off. The horse startled them as the instructor decided to leave for a few minutes and teach them a few ways for them to stop and go. After a few minutes of following the girl she was talking, and Ana was sort of paying attention as she was watching the surroundings and watching what was going on in front of her. She swallowed hard as they were now being left alone by her. “So Abel, are you from around here? Are you here temporarily?” she asked as she figured she might as well ask him a few things about him so she could get to know him.

IT wasn’t going to be that easy.
