The five of them had decided to go out for dinner
since the kids were not home. Kaye Leigh and Jeff were
upstairs getting ready.
“Let’s just stay here, lock the door,
and never leave.” Kaye Leigh said hugging him.
“We can’t hide from our problems Kaye
Leigh.” He said kissing her.
“We could if you let us.” She said
“Leave your hair down tonight.” He
Kaye Leigh and Becki were the last
ones downstairs, as they were coming down Jon said, “You two
look beautiful tonight.”
“Thanks.” They replied.
“Your chariot waits.” Jeff said
opening the door.
He opened the truck door for Kaye
Leigh and helped her in. Curtis helped Becki in also, and then
they headed into town. When they got to the restaurant Jeff
led them inside. When they were seated, Kaye Leigh noticed
“Look Morgan’s having dinner alone,
should we invite her over?” Kaye Leigh said.
“You’re kidding right?” Jeff said.
“Of course but I am going to have a
chat with her.” She said getting up.
“Kaye Leigh don’t!” Jeff said.
“Don’t worry; I’m just going to talk
to her.” She said.
Kaye Leigh went to Morgan’s table and
“Kaye Leigh what a surprise.” Morgan
“Is it really a surprise Morgan or
were you hoping to run into me?” Kaye Leigh said.
“It’s a surprise really.” Morgan
“What brings you to town?” Kaye Leigh
“Jeff of course.” Morgan said.
“He’s right over there.” She said
pointing to him. “If you’re having an affair and I know about
it then why is he with me?”
“He wants us both right now Kaye
Leigh, but last night he was telling me that he loved me and
he brought me a present. I wanted him to stay but he said that
he couldn’t because there was too much going on at your
house.” Morgan said.
Kaye Leigh’s stomach turned. “Where
did you and Jeff meet?” she asked.
“The Monday after you and I met, I
had stayed in town because I didn’t want to go back home and
be ignored by my husband. I ran into Jeff while he was going
to get his mail. I ran into you shortly after that remember?
Anyway, we talked, met for lunch a few times, and we started
having an affair.” Morgan said. “It really happened fast, I
never meant for it to happen, and I didn’t want to hurt you,
but I can’t let him go Kaye Leigh. You’re not letting him go
“It’s more like he isn’t letting go
of me very easily.” She said.
“Really, when he gave me this last
night I assumed differently.” Morgan said pulling the wedding
ring and engagement ring out of her purse.
“Give those to me now.” Kaye Leigh
“Sorry Kaye Leigh but Jeff wants me
to have them.”
Kaye Leigh grabbed for the rings.
“Stop it Kaye Leigh you’re making a fool of yourself.” Morgan
said as peopled looked at her. Becki came over to the table.
“What’s going on Kaye Leigh?” she
“I was just showing her the present
Jeff gave me last night while he was telling me he loved me.”
Morgan said laughing. Kaye Leigh stood up to leave. “Admit
defeat Kaye Leigh and accept what Sam is willing to give you,
move on and let Jeff do the same.”
“Jeff may not be mine anymore, but I
promise you Morgan that you will end up with nothing.” Kaye
Leigh said. She turned to leave with Becki.
“Hey Kaye Leigh, next time Jeff is
gone remember it’s my bed that he will be in.” Morgan yelled
so the whole restaurant heard. Kaye Leigh drew back and hit
her. She had Morgan by the neck when Jon and Jeff pulled her
Someone had called the police.
“Kaye Leigh found out that Jeff and I
are having an affair, she came here to confront me and then
attacked me.” Morgan said as tears fell down her face. Kaye
Leigh watched her, she was so full of anger and hatred she
wanted to attack her again. “I was just sitting here waiting
for Jeff to come back.” Morgan was giving her statement to one
of the officers.
“Kaye Leigh tell me what happened.”
Another officer asked her. They were friends of Jon’s so she
knew them also and it made it easier. Kaye Leigh was beyond
angry and hurt, there was only one way Morgan got those rings
and that she knew about what was happening at the house, and
Kaye Leigh was stupid enough to fall for his lies once again.
“Jeff did you give your wife’s rings
to Mrs. Thomas last night?” the officer that talked to Kaye
Leigh was talking to him now.
“What, of course not I left the rings
up in the bedroom after our argument and I never saw Morgan
last night.” He said.
“Mrs. Thomas, please give me the
rings.” The officer said. Morgan handed them to him. “Are
these your wife’s rings?” he asked Jeff.
“Yes! Where did you get them?” Jeff
“You gave them to me last night when
you came to my hotel room.” She said.
“You’re a liar.” He said taking a
step towards her.
“Jeff everyone knows now you can stop
pretending.” She said smiling at him.
“Jeff you need to calm down.” The
officer said as Jeff took another step towards her.
“I want charges brought against Kaye
Leigh.” Morgan said looking at her.
Jon was with Kaye Leigh.
“How could she have gotten my rings
if he didn’t give them to her?” she said angrily. “I wanted to
believe him, I can’t believe how stupid I am Jon, when will I
ever learn the only person you can depend on is yourself.”
Becki was watching her; she could not believe the whole thing.
“Kaye Leigh there has to be a
reasonable explanation for all of this.” Becki said.
“Just stop it Becki! He lies, he
always has, and I do not want to hear anymore. Either support
me or go away.” Kaye Leigh said wearily.
“Kaye Leigh we’re going to have to
take you down to the station.” An officer said apologetically.
“Mrs. Thomas is pressing assault
charges.” Kaye Leigh started laughing.
“Great a perfect ending to a perfect
night.” She said.
“Is this really necessary?” Jon
“Jon you know the drill.” The officer
said. “I need you to turn around and put your hands behind
“You don’t have to handcuff her, she
isn’t a threat, and I do know that.” Jon said angrily.
“It’s fine Jon.” She said putting her
hands behind her back.
Kaye Leigh was placed in the back of
a patrol car. This was just getting better and better she
thought. She was not going to leave or try to kick Jeff out
because she promised and she stands by her commitments, but
she was never going to talk to him again. The divorce papers
would be finalized this week she could make it through one
more week. Hopefully it would not take long after that or
maybe Jeff would decide to just go be with Morgan.
When they got to the station, Kaye
Leigh was fingerprinted, photographed, and led to a cell.
“I’m really sorry Kaye Leigh.” The
“You’re just doing your job don’t
worry about it.” She replied. “By the way I don’t want any
visitors and I will post my own bail.”
“Kaye Leigh that means you will be
here until Monday.” The officer said.
“I realize that, and it’s what I
want.” She told him.
“If you’re sure.” He replied shaking
Jeff, Jon, Curtis, and Becki got to
the station shortly after Kaye Leigh was booked.
“Let me see Kaye Leigh.” Jeff said.
“Sorry, but she has requested no
visitors, and that she posts her own bail.” The officer said.
“That’s ridiculous!” Jeff said.
“It’s up to her, I tried to talk to
her, but she said she realized what she was asking and that’s
what we have to follow.” The officer replied.
“They can’t go back and see her, but
I can. I may not be on duty but I still work here.” Jon said.
“True.” The officer said laughing.
Jon went back to the cells and found
Kaye Leigh. Some guy was in another cell making rude comments.
“I said no visitors.” Kaye Leigh said
shutting her eyes.
“I’m not a visitor; I’m an officer
right now, which is good for you.” Jon said. “Sit up Kaye
Leigh.” He tapped her legs so he could sit down next to her.
“What are you doing? There is no reason for you to sit in
here.” He said.
“It’s much easier in here at least
people don’t lie.” She said. “And don’t start telling me how
much you believe Jeff because I don’t want to hear it Jon.”
“You don’t have to hear it Kaye
Leigh, but you aren’t going to sit here either.” He said. “I
will post your bail and you can pay me back if you don’t want
your husband to do it.” With that, he left.
When Jon got back out front, he had
the officer find out what her bail would be.
“She’s going to let me post it?” Jeff
“Well you’re going to post it but
she’s going to think it’s me doing it or she won’t come out.”
“She’s angry about the rings.”
“Great.” Jeff said.
“It will be ok.” Becki said.
“They said since she has no priors
and that the incident was provoked by Mrs. Thomas that she
wouldn’t have to post bail and more than likely the charges
will be dismissed.” The officer told them when he came back.
“I’ll go get Kaye Leigh now.”
“You’re free to go Kaye Leigh.” He
said opening the door.
“Great.” She replied. She did not say
a word on the way home, nor did she acknowledge anyone talking
to her. She went straight up to their bedroom. Jeff did not
know what to do, she was keeping her promise about not leaving
or kicking him out but she was definitely withdrawing from
him. He followed her upstairs.
Kaye Leigh went into the bathroom
when he came in; when she came out, she was dressed in her
“Can we talk Kaye Leigh?” he asked.
She did not look at him or say a word as she put on her robe.
“Kaye Leigh you said we would talk.” He reminded her.
“Please.” Kaye Leigh walked out the door without looking back.
“Do you want something to eat Kaye
Leigh?” Becki asked. She shook her head. Jeff came into the
dinning room and sat down across from her.
“Ok Kaye Leigh you won’t talk to me
so please listen. I did not give Morgan rings, nor would I
have ever done something like that. I don’t know how she got
them, that’s something we can add to our list to figure out.”
He said. Kaye Leigh poured herself a glass of tea and still
“You know Kaye Leigh if you don’t
talk you will explode.” Jon said. Curtis and Becki laughed.
“Want to talk?” Becki asked.
“There’s nothing to talk about.” She
“Kaye Leigh you promised you wouldn’t
push me away.” Jeff said. Kaye Leigh finally looked at him.
“You promised to be faithful, so I
guess we’ve both lied.” She replied.
“I have been!” he yelled
“Really Jeff then explain to me how
she got my rings that you took off? How did she know there was
a lot of stuff going on at the house that night?” Kaye Leigh
“What do you mean?” Jon asked.
“Morgan said Jeff went to her hotel
room last night but couldn’t stay because he said there were a
lot of things going on back at the house.” She replied.
Curtis and Jon looked at him.
“Where did you go last night?” Jon
asked. Jeff laughed.
“Not to Morgan’s I can promise you
that.” Jeff said angrily.
“Where Jeff?” Jon repeated.
“You can either accept my word Jon or
not I don’t care.” He said.
“I think you need to leave.” Jon
said. Jeff laughed.
“This is my house.” He said.
“This is Kaye Leigh’s house, and it
will be after the divorce, now leave.” Jon said standing up.
Jeff stood up.
“I’m not leaving Jon.” He said. Jon
took a step towards Jeff.
Kaye Leigh stood up and got between
“Stop it Jon! Jeff is staying. When
the court decides who gets the ranch then one of us will
leave, not until then do you understand?” Kaye Leigh said.
“This is your ranch you built it.”
“It is our house until the divorced
is final, now I am tired, and I’ve had a very long day. I’m
going to bed and you two had better not fight.” She said. Kaye
Leigh went upstairs.
“You have better start praying that
the evidence is out there to prove your innocence’s.” Jon
“Jon be quiet!” Jeff yelled.
“Knock it off you two.” Becki said.
“She’s right Kaye Leigh doesn’t need
you two at each other on top of everything else.” Curtis said.
