He wasn't entirely honest with Gerald, though.
The phone call from Gerald yesterday provided the perfect opportunity.
Gerald and two other men wanted to rent Carmen's house for three weeks this summer.
I talked to Gerald.
Gerald's voice was concerned.
Gerald was easy to talk to and his conversation generally led her in the direction she needed to go.
According to Alex, Gerald had expressed interest several years ago – when the summer cottage thing was only an idea.
Gerald should find this route rewarding.
Then you must have a lot of confidence in Gerald.
When his friend knocked on the door, he waited for Carmen to answer it and when Gerald made the introductions, Alex said nothing – not even when Rob made a comment that would normally have raised an eyebrow.
Gerald's gaze shifted briefly to Alex, who continued reading as if he hadn't heard their conversation.
Rob was taller than Alex, but not as tall as Gerald.
Gerald stood a head taller than all of them.
Gerald shook his head.
Gerald and Aaron discussed the other two bedrooms and Aaron decided on the small room upstairs.
Gerald took a seat closest to Alex and Aaron sat down opposite her, leaving the last chair for Rob.

When she turned to the others, Gerald smiled.

Gerald glanced at her.
Are you thinking about running from the bison, Gerald?
Gerald was tall and lean, his gait casual.
And Gerald … what was Gerald?
Gerald was the first to her side, his expression clearly awed.
Gerald lifted his brows and looked away.
What did Gerald know about him?
Gerald was here because Alex was his friend.
When they returned to the stable, Gerald dismounted and staggered.
Yes, but I think Gerald is a little worse for wear.
He said he had different interests than Gerald, and yet … She met his troubled gaze.
But Gerald is here now.
Surely he didn't think Gerald had an interest in her.
No, he said he trusted Gerald.

If Gerald was his problem, he gave no indication when they were together.

Remembering the way Felipa looked at Gerald during the party at the hacienda, she frowned.
Did you tell her Gerald was here?
I think Gerald is the draw.
It hadn't occurred to her, but Gerald might feel trapped.
Even more surprising was the fact that Gerald didn't seem to mind being left behind.
With Rob and Aaron otherwise occupied, it left Gerald free to enjoy the evening with Alex, Carmen and the children.
Alex and Gerald talked around and over the bobbing heads of children on their laps as if it were an everyday occurrence.
Gerald had two married sisters and a passel of nieces and nephews – all of whom he was openly proud.
Gerald had not yet married, but he was as much a family man as Alex.
Gerald didn't share the desire to control with Alex, though.
Gerald lifted a brow.
Alex shifted his attention to Gerald and his face melted into a smile.
Felipa and the others had drifted ahead of her when she glanced up to see Gerald watching her.
Maybe Gerald was intuitive – or maybe only he and Felipa were looking her way when Alex spoke.
Rob and Gerald were standing beside their saddled mounts, looking proud.
A half-hour later, at the creek, Gerald decided he wanted to walk a while.

Gerald mounted in his usual awkward style and followed her.
Gerald stood with his head down, eyes closed.
Gerald was a decent sort.
Gerald fell into stride with her.
She glanced up at Gerald and grinned.
Gerald was silent for a few moments.
Of course, the horses didn't need the rest as much as Gerald needed the relief from riding.
Aaron, Felipa and Gerald headed into town and Rob headed for the house.
Gerald would be back by now and he'd remember the bluff.

Did Gerald tell him?
As Rob crossed the foot bridge across the creek, Alex and Gerald emerged from the barn and started for the house.
They met in the field and talked for a few minutes and then separated – Rob continuing toward the guest house and Alex and Gerald angled toward the footbridge.
By the time Carmen retrieved the table cloths from the house, Gerald and Alex had crossed the footbridge and were on the path up the hill to the house.
Gerald offered to help Carmen with the table cloths and Alex went inside to work in his office until the guests arrived.
Gerald shook the table cloth out and held it down in the breeze while Carmen clipped it to the table one-handed.
When Gerald didn't respond, she looked up to see why.
She placed another clip and then glanced up to find Gerald watching her.
Gerald gave her a level look.
Gerald's mouth slipped into a wry smile.
Gerald spoke as he turned away.
Maybe Gerald was trying to warn her of that as well.
I thought you said Felipa was here because of Gerald.
And Gerald - that would be all four of you, I guess.
Of course, it must have been difficult for Gerald.
If you think I'm more man than Gerald, then why did you call him instead of me?
Gerald was at the guest house – closer.
But Gerald must have immediately called Alex.
I thought maybe Gerald could help me out of that fix and you'd never know I went up there alone.
She told Gerald, but he didn't need to know that either.
She gasped and released Gerald.
Had he seen enough to know Gerald had stopped her from falling?
His brows resumed their natural position as he turned to Gerald.
Maybe he came out after Gerald released her – or maybe he saw what happened.
Whatever the case, he didn't appear upset with Gerald.
Gerald cleared his throat.
Alex tore his gaze from her and nodded to Gerald.
Apparently he had called Gerald and he had walked over – catching her before she fell.
She could have kissed Gerald by mistake as Alex walked out on the porch.
Alex might be unhappy that she hadn't asked him to help – because he was working – but he'd probably be glad to know she hadn't called Gerald.
Wherever Alex and Gerald went, they didn't get back until after dark.
Which leaves Gerald at home alone.
Gerald wanted to go with me so I had him meet me here.
She was considering getting one of the men to carry it to the barn when Gerald and Sam arrived on horseback.
Sam offered to help but Gerald declined, saying it wasn't that heavy.
Gerald and Sam watched as Carmen opened the box and started putting it together.
She glanced at Gerald, who was looking uncomfortable, and then Sam, who appeared more amused than concerned.
She glanced back at Gerald and Sam before she stepped through the door.
Gerald looked worried and Sam was shaking her head.
Fortunately, Gerald and Sam had escaped.
As far as she knew, Felipa said nothing to anyone, but Gerald and Sam probably suspected.
I don't know how Gerald could help but know.
You like Gerald … and Aaron.
Gerald is Alex's friend.
Does Gerald know what happened?
Gerald and Aaron looked suddenly alert.
Gerald eyed the two of them and then spoke to Alex.
Size alone would give Rob second thoughts about tangling with Gerald.
Gerald and Aaron both turned a startled look on Rob.
The two of them walked out the door, but Gerald stood still, watching after them.
Gerald glanced at Alex.
Gerald didn't respond for a moment, but when he did, his tone and expression would have melted steel.
Finally his attention returned to Gerald.
Gerald shook his hand and turned to the door, speaking over his shoulder.
I think Gerald put Alex in his place.
Actually, Gerald's intent was probably to ward off an attack, rather than chastise Alex.
Whatever the case, Gerald had certainly held his own against Alex.
It must have been comforting to watch Gerald remind Alex who he was talking to.
Gerald visited the family Monday evening to express condolences.
When Alex went outside to see Gerald off, Felipa took the opportunity to talk to Carmen alone.
Probably the same thing you wanted from Gerald – a few moments of companionship with a friend.
Gerald warned me, but I thought he didn't have enough experience to know.
You said you talked to Gerald.
No, I said Gerald warned me.
I didn't go to Gerald or Senor Medena to talk about what was going on between us.
My father would know less than Gerald about what it took to make a woman happy.
When you called Gerald instead of me because you thought I would be upset, do you have any idea how that made me feel?
He hadn't said anything to either of them, but he was certain Gerald's feelings for Carmen went deeper than mere friendship.
Carmen had no idea, and maybe Gerald didn't either, but the way he looked at her sometimes – or rather, looked away – suggested he did.
Carmen wouldn't cheat, and Gerald wouldn't intentionally take her away, but if she was unhappy enough, Carmen might leave.
