Once they finally make it back to the ranch, they un-tack, groom, and feed their horses. The two girls finish the rest of the chores in the yard and head inside. After both girls have showered and changed into their pj's, they get cozy in Amy's double bed.
"Amy, are you still awake?' Asks Mallory quietly. The lights were turned off and both girls were at least attempting to fall asleep. Mallory being herself though, had to say what was in her head.
"Yes Mallory. I'm awake." Groans Amy sleepily. She was about half way sleep and thinking about her beloved Ty.
"I just wanted to say that you're a wonderful friend. I also wanted to tell you that before I kissed you, I told Ty about my feelings for you. He said I should find someone my age to like. The only thing is that I don't know any girls who are my age and lesbian. Do you?"
"Yeah." Amy yawns. A client I helped was gay and has a whole network of friends who are aw well. I can hook you two up." Amy loved Mallory and was happy to help but she also desperately wanted this conversation to end and to drift into dreamland.
"Really, you'd do that for me? Amy, you're the best! Good night."
"Good night Mallory" Amy says she rolls over and puts her arm on Mallory's side. She drifts off to sleep with her friend.
"Amy, One more thing" Mallory says barley above a whisper.
"Mhmm?" mutters Amy to sleepy to form actual words.
"I love you."
'I love you too Mallory. Now go to sleep."
