just a thought
"What?" Kyle squinted hard.
"Look, you're not exactly Edward and she's no Bella." She'd finally got around to reading the Twilight series.
Kyle gave her a bit of a scowl.
"Sorry." She guessed she shouldn't have asked. But that had to be the problem. It had to be. "You know, she could be a model or something if she really tried." Amanda went to see about Rosie then who had ran off to her room. It was quiet so Rosie had to be up to something, but she was just playing with her dollhouse.
"I really wish you guys lived in town. Really." That would be the real solution. "Wouldn't it be great if we lived all together?"
"We could all possibly do it for Rosie. Plus, you two can't live in at shack, forever." She informed him. Naturally, Kyle gave her a heavy sigh. She suddenly felt the urge to hug him, and she did.
"Stop!" He didn't want her hugs. She should have known that. He was only civil to her because she was Rosie's mother.
"I know what you need." She went to get him some coffee then.
"This should be good." He watched her pour the coffee and fix it up the way she knew he liked it. "I don't take sugar, anymore." He quickly informed her.
"OK." She sighed. "Look, you two need to go somewhere together. Just a trip. Somewhere. Nice. And see if its really going to happen. It will. And if it doesn't, then- you know. Just say its over. OK?"
"I can't do that." He took the creamed coffee then.
"Well, stop blaming yourself about everything, and blame me." She shrugged.
He almost smiled. He had a nice one. Otherwise, he came off pretty arrogant, she thought.
