Kelsey added a frown to the finger wag. “Whatever you heard, if Dad wanted you to know, he'd have invited you to the meeting. To talk about it is gossiping.”
“Andy asked Dad, and I quote, for your hand in marriage.”
Kelsey spit coffee. “What.” Forget the no-gossip rule. This involved her. She grabbed a napkin and wiped up the coffee spatter.
“Figured you might feel like that.” Brock grinned. “I know how it is with Becky and me,” he said and blushed, “and I never got the idea you and Andy were like that.”
“No bloody way,” Kelsey said. “We work together. We've gone to company parties and movies. But that's it.” She sliced a hand through the air. “Period. End of sentence. End of story.” What possessed Andy to think she'd marry him?
Brock snorted. “Well, Andy never did mention love and Dad never asked. They talked about you becoming a partner at the firm and about Andy and you helping run the ranch. The benefits of you two getting married. That type of thing. The conversation held all the charm of selling a prized heifer.”
