of course not

"I don't know of anyone." Eric didn't want to hear this from Ian. Why in the world was he trying to play cupid now? Ian kept the questions going though. Eric was on the phone with him while he was trying to cook a stir-fry. "She's too old for you." He remembered Kayla who was at the library when he was in high school.

"I'm not trying to date her. I just thought-" Ian sighed then.

"Look, I have other things to be worried about, than you getting a co-worker a date, OK." He did too. He still wanted Syd to decide when they could get married. After all, he had done the whole engagement thing at her favorite bistros. It was official. They were engaged. Of course, the ring wasn't exactly paid for, but still he wished she could decide something.

She kept telling him how she wanted to wait until after the baby was born. They knew now they were having a baby girl. And yes, it was totally happiness to find this out. Well, he would have been happy, no matter what.

Naturally, Eric wanted to get married now, but he didn't want to rush her, either. At the rate they were going, the kids would probably be in high school before they tied the knot.

"Look, just don't do anything stupid." Eric snapped.

"I'm not." Ian promised.

"You've gone out with her?" Eric wondered if there was something he wasn't telling him.

"Not really." Ian answered.

"Not really? What does that mean?" Eric rolled his eyes. This should be stuff his Dad should be handling. Not him. "You know how you get." He thought of Olivia then and how Ian had somehow created his own little love world for her while it was just texting, chatting online and phone calls.

"I don't even have her phone number." Ian promised, but Eric had a feeling Ian wished he did.

Eric might be more fatherly than brotherly, but I'm glad he cares.

I wonder if Syd's as commited as he is.

Thanks for the sweet comment :)
Yeah Logan Lerman is quite my idol. Seen Percy Jackson? It's not my favourite one with him. I actually like 'the Butterfly effect' the best, but then he was still very young.

Anyway, I'm gonna follow you and start reading this from the beginning :)
