It was still awkward around her, but she had her own awkwardness to contend with. Roger and his new boyfriend, Doyle. Who was there almost, all the time.
"Do you think he'll move in?" Ian asked Olivia who seemed more bogged down with classes than anyone this semester. If she kept this up, she'd graduate from the university on time.
"Probably." Olivia was a bit indifferent.
"And you're OK with that?" Ian aked. He was watching Evan while Syd and Eric were out looking at houses with his Mom and Dad.
"I have to be." Olivia smiled. "So you gonna babysit all summer?"
"I dunno." Ian shrugged. "I guess we'll be moving soon." He sighed.
"Bummer." She scanned pages and then took notes.
"Well, I broke up with Cami, anyway. This way I won't have to see her. I guess. But you know, it would be nice to last four years at the same school." He watched Evan in his swing though, avoiding eye contact with Olivia.
"You should, at least get to know the library." She got out her library card. "You want to come with me? You could sign up for a summer reading program, or something. It could be a start of something new." She grinned then. "Who knows who you might meet at the library."
Ian just grinned with a shrug. To bad she had to have a boyfriend now.
