But then he got an inkling that Kayla and Rick ( the young adult librarian) used to date.
"You know they almost got married." Wilson the only male clerk told him while they were taking break at the same time one afternoon.
"Wow." Ian then wondered if he should have said that. Hopefully, not like a girl. Anyway, he wasn't expecting to hear that. Of course, later he wondered if Wilson was just saying that to get a laugh. Ian decided to keep the information to himself. Of course, he saw the way Rick was around Kayla. Always touchy feely. And she would usually give him a scowl to leave her alone.
Of course, there was the age thing he wondered about. He just wanted to know how old she was. He noticed her birthday was coming up in August.
"Do you know how old she'll be?" He didn't ask this around Wilson. He asked when the secretary was in the breakroom.
"Gosh, I dunno." The older woman was a bubbly sort. "I think she graduated when my son did." She left for the office, but came right back. "She'll be twenty-four."
Ian found himself smiling once more. He liked the thought of that. Sort of. He knew he didn't have a chance with her. He wasn't planning on stalking her, either. But he knew he wasn't quite like Rick. At least they could talk. Talk. Yeah, he needed that. Nothing more. Just talk.
