Sam and Randy met Cherokee when they
came home for Christmas. They had missed Thanksgiving by virtue of the fact
that each had a part time job. Sam had to work during the Thanksgiving holiday
period, so Randy stayed there with her.
Cherokee was used to the musical chairs
nature of the sexual relationships in the house by then, but adding two more to
the game still shocked her a bit. In later years she would marvel at the fact
that she was able to accept the fact that Samantha wanted that kind of
relationship with her biological father, but the circumstances of her life at
that time seemed to insulate her from the shock an outsider would have felt.
She half expected Randy to approach his mother, sexually, but that never
happened, and there was never any indication that either of them contemplated
When Cynthia was six months old,
Mallory brought up joining the National Guard again. Mallory said she was
never going to college, and she needed to gain some skills that could be
translated into a job, later. After hours of argument, during which Cherokee
joined in, Lucy finally had to accept that her little girl had grown up and had
the right to forge her own future. When she capitulated, she said only one more
"If you go off and get yourself
killed I'll never speak to you again!"
Mallory didn't waste any time. She
went back to the recruiting office and, after two hours of discussion, enlisted
for the standard six year commitment. She chose Military Police as her
occupational specialty. Later, she couldn't explain why she chose that job.
It was on the list she was looking at, and that's what she decided she wanted
to try doing.
She had one month to spend with the
entire family after Sam and Randy came home for the summer. Then, right after
the July 4th holiday, she reported for training that lasted sixteen weeks. She
would later say it was the hardest thing she'd ever done, not because of the
difficulty of the training ... but because she was separated from her children
for so long.
Randy and Sam returned to college
while she was gone, and time for them settled back into the routine of their
third year of college.
The difference Mallory's "adventure"
made in her was obvious immediately when she got back home in November. It was
visible in her carriage, the way she walked, stood,
and moved around. Her body had
been toned. Where, before, her figure had been lush, now she was slim and
curvy. She'd always had a lot of self-confidence, but now that confidence had
become more tangible. She knew she could run, carry heavy loads,
and fight, things a lot of
girls her age never even thought about.
She'd also gotten the top
marksmanship award on the rifle range.
"I shot perfect the very first
time we qualified with the M4," she announced, proudly. "And all
thanks to Bob for teaching me how to shoot so well. But nobody groped me while
I was doing it." She grinned. Then she shrugged. "Shooting the
pistol was harder, but I figured it out. I never shot expert, but I got
Marksman. I need to buy a hand gun so I can practice here, in the back
The only thing she was sad about was
that she missed William's first toddling steps as Cherokee, Lucy,
and Bob had encouraged him
Mallory's success in basic training
and AIT had fired her imagination. Now she contemplated some kind of career in
civilian law enforcement. To that end she did some research. Her visit to the
local police station left her unimpressed, but when she investigated the state
police, she got excited. They were actively recruiting females. There would
be an extensive application procedure, and if she passed all the initial
examinations, it would mean another absence from home to attend the academy,
but based on what she'd learned, she felt capable of meeting the requirements.
Oddly, Lucy felt much better about
this career path than the military one, and it was obvious in the discussions
they had about it.
Living together at college was
different than living together at home. Randy and Samantha studied, prepared
meals, went to work,
and spent long hours naked
in each other's arms. They had only each other to please. Randy didn't think
much about it, but Sam wondered if this was what the average married couple
They were really still quite
sheltered, but neither of them had enough life experience to realize that.
Even when they went home for Christmas
that year, they were sheltered by immersion into the family unit where love,
and comfort of a kind the
outside world would disapprove of was the norm.
There was only one change, and that
was simply a result of the fact that Sam had matured.
This time, when she lay under her
thrusting father, she whispered that he could get her pregnant after she
May arrived and, with it, Randy and
Sam rejoined the family, which now included Cherokee and Jeremiah, for all
intents and purposes. Cherokee got paid, but she thought of it as more of an
allowance than wages for a job. She experienced a minor jolt when the pool was
filled and the family frolicked around the back yard nude. She was never
comfortable being completely naked with them, but went topless sometimes. She
felt both relief and some anxiety about the fact that neither man ever
approached her in any improper way. Both obviously enjoyed looking at her, but
that was it.
For the first time in a long time
she began to imagine that she might someday find a good man to share her life
with. She was living with two men who were proof that such men existed.
Mallory had a month with Sam and
Randy before she went to the academy. She had to receive permission from the
Guard to miss drills and summer camp, but her attendance at the state police
academy was considered equivalent training, so she got credit for it. The
course lasted twenty-three weeks,
and this time it seemed like forever to Mal.
She was in better shape than half
her class, though, and already proficient with firearms. The course was
incredibly more detailed than what the Army had given her, in terms of actual
law enforcement duties, and she took to that like a duck to water. Her
self-image changed in the process and she became strong in ways she hadn't
anticipated. She emerged with that presence that, if you've ever been stopped
by a state trooper, makes you feel like you're in the presence of a potentially
Randy would confess, years later,
that he was a little afraid of her the first time he saw her after she
The only surprise for her in the
whole process was that sparks flew between her and another cadet, a handsome
man who made her knees feel weak when he expressed a desire to get to know her
better during the first break in their training cycle.
She confided to her mother that when
she went on her first real date, she felt like a fish out of water.
All they talked about on that date
was what they were experiencing, but it was the start of something that had the
potential to last. When she told him she had children, but had never been
married, his only comment was, "I think it's better to date a woman who's had
some experience, and understands how hard life can be."
There is, of course, much more to
this story. To tell it would require another book’s worth of writing. Perhaps
that book will be written some day, but for now, only the high points will be
Mallory did become a state trooper,
and she took George Pemberton to meet her family. She blushingly introduced
him as her boyfriend and then asked Bob if they might be able to use his
hunting privileges. That agreed upon, she took him to where she’d
lost her virginity. In the process, she let George replace her brother and
uncle as her lover.
He didn’t have buck fever, as it
turned out. That he proposed while they sat in a tree stand together was just
frosting on the cake. When they got married, he adopted her children and then
produced two of his own with her. When land was offered next to her parents, to
build a house, he gladly accepted the offer. That Bob and Lucy’s
nanny was willing to take care of their children was an unexpected benefit.
Sam graduated and was offered a
teaching position where she had done her student teaching. That was too far
away from home, though, so she decided to keep looking. Randy got a job doing
the late night weather report on Channel 13, WTAN TV, in Camdenton, which was
only an hour from “home.” Once employed, he asked
Samantha to marry him and she decided to do some substitute teaching while she
was finally able to abandon protection and let Randy finally get her pregnant.
She did not let her father’s sperm have access to her
eggs until she was sure Randy was going to be a daddy. When she went home for
a weekend to announce their joy, she got her father alone in one of the
