286. Owen Grady 63

“Atta girl, Delta!” You shout, hopping a bit in excitement. You smile widely down at her as you toss her another treat. “I told you she could do it.” You mutter to yourself. However, when you hear Owen’s voice behind you, you jump.
“Yes, but she’s also been training for four hours now. That’s overdoing it a little, don’t you think?”
Owen doesn’t seem nearly as excited as you and this irks you a bit. Delta is the runt of the litter and has been struggling to learn her commands as she’s easily distracted by her sisters. However, you promised that if you could get her alone for a few hours a day, you would get her caught up.
“It’s not overdoing it. Look, she’s having fun; she loves me. Besides, I can’t train her alone during the day because the girls whine when they see you if they’re locked up.” You give him a smile but he doesn’t return it.
“Yeah, but it would have been nice if we could have made our dinner reservations.” He crosses his arms and looks away, clearly pouting and you gasp.
“Oh my god, was that tonight? Why didn’t you call me and remind me?” You reach for your phone to check the calendar and 3 missed calls, 5 texts, and a voicemail show up on your screen. You drag a hand down your face.
“Shit, I’m sorry. I left it on silent again.” You apologize before walking over to him, wiping your hands on your jeans. “I really am sorry, Owen. I just got so excited about being the one to teach her this.”
He shrugs and lets out a sigh, the anger in his face residing. “I’m not mad. I just feel like she’s the only thing you think about anymore.” He raises his eyebrows and you decide not to try to defend yourself. You really have been spending way more time than necessary at the paddock and realizing that he’s jealous of the time you spend there both makes you feel bad, but slightly proud too. He really does care about you if he wants to spend more time with you.
“How about this? Why don’t I swap my lunch break with Anna. I’ll train with Delta alone while you’re on lunch and then when you get back I’ll take mine. She’s catching up enough now that I don’t think it will take more than an hour or two a day to keep her caught up.” You give him a smile and he looks down at you, giving you a nod.
“That sounds fair.” He finally gives you a real smile. “I’m sorry too, I know this is important to you; I shouldn’t have gotten jealous.” He reaches down to caress your cheek and he gives you a quick kiss on the forehead. “If we hurry, we can grab some subs on the way home before they close.”
“I’ll go get cleaned up, can you let the other girls out of the cage? Thanks.” You press onto your tiptoes to give him a kiss and then run off towards the breakroom trailer. You never meant to make him jealous, but you’re glad that the two of you can talk about things like this without it ending in a fight. You wash the dirt off your arms as you think about how lucky you are to have someone like Owen in your life.
