Chester (Chet) Wilde

As the first born, I always thought running the family ranch was my destiny.

Apparently, everyone else did too, because when Dad was killed in a car accident, everything fell to me.

Life was stressful for a while after, till my brother Gabe came back home to help out.

What was the hardest part of losing Dad the way we did? Without question, it was becoming the stand in / de facto father to my youngest brother, Leo.

I didn't want the job, and he sure didn't seem to want me to have it. But, with the path he was headed down, I didn't see any other choice.

I thought I had given up any chance of ever finding a life of my own, until she walked into my life.

Who says you can't have it all? Not me.

I say, better late than never.
