She also met and started dating Rand Cummings. He was a lobbyist and a guest speaker at the college. She married him the summer after her 2nd year of college. He seemed rather jealous and didn't seem to think he had to keep the same standard of a monogamous relationship.
He was also controlling but Diana dismissed these aspects of his personality. Their marriage lasted 4 years and the gossip he spread was that she was cheating on him when the reverse was true. She returned home at 24 determined to remain. It was Guy now 19 that picked her up at the airport and told her that her father had another heart attack 2 months previous. She saw Holt again and she told him that he should have told her about her father's attack. He repeated to her the gossip about her numerous affairs and she slapped him. He slapped her back and walked away. Oh how she hated Holt.
Guy was still there to follow her around and tell her how much he missed her. He made her feel good about herself. They went skinny dipping one afternoon and she let him make love to her. It was afterward when he started to tell her how much he loved her and wanted to marry her that it became a problem. She had felt sorry of all of the times she had treated him badly for following her like a puppy dog and he had made her feel better.
The sex didn't mean she loved him at all. She just wanted to make him feel better too. There was a white stallion that had began coming around taking their mares.
Holt, Guy, Rube and Diana all set out to find the mares and get them back. They were camping out and chasing the horses. Guy was doing his best to pull Diana away from the others to get time with her. He ended up seeing her and Holt making love after they had fought with each other. Diana tried to convince Guy that it wasn't rape. He refused to listened to her. They caught the mares and took them back home. The stallion kept returning each day until he stole them away again. He had killed on of the other stallions on the ranch and wounded another. They went after the horses again and this time the stallion attacked Rube and killed him.
The stallion had killed one of the colts that he had taken along with it's mother too. Holt bought another stallion and brought it to the ranch.
