Ellie couldn't explain how she knew, but she knew. She knew about Nick and Heath. She just listened to Kelsey talk on the phone. Perhaps it was the fact that Kelsey had talked so much about herself was the real reason why she didn't know about Nick. But Ellie wasn't going to tell Kelsey this.
"Thank God, I have Kyle." Kelsey's words almost made Ellie crack up. It was really late. She had to get off her cell. Charlie was sacked out in the play pen in her room, and she thought Lon was asleep too.
"What's so funny?" Lon wanted to know as soon as she got off the phone.
"Nothing, really," Ellie shrugged. "Its just, its a shock to Kel, she didn't know about Nick."
"What about Nick?" Now Lon was awake, but he kept his voice low.
"That he has a boyfriend." She smiled snuggling next to Lon.
"Really?" It sounded like news to him too.
"Yeah, remember, you were wondering where all your clothes were going," Ellie said. "Well, Heath had them."
"What was he doing with my clothes?" Lon asked so sleepily.
"I guess he liked your style. He was wearing them." Ellie sighed.
"He didn't have any clothes." She was almost asleep as they talked.
"Seriously?" Lon nudged.
