unaware of so many things
"Well, she is his mother." Eric's mother told him.
"And your point? He's with me! He's suppose to be with me. I ask for this one little thing. If you could let him stay with you a week or two." He sighed as he turned on the coffee pot, knowing now that was too much to ask. He shouldn't have. He really shouldn't have. They could have managed, somehow.
"I thought she needed him. He needs her. You can't deprive her-"
"Mom, this has been decided. We have rules to go by. Amanda-" Eric tensed. He needed to drink his coffee. And get Evan. He wasn't going to take his chances to see what Amanda might pull, if she hadn't already. "Look, I'm going to get him. He belongs here. Not with her."
He didn't wait to get his coffee. He called Amanda right away and of course, he woke her.
"What are you doing?" She sounded so sluggish as if every morning was zombieland for her.
"I know Evan's there. I can't believe you didn't call me or anything!" He snapped.
"He's asleep." She sounded as if she might be asleep too. He heard her yawn.
"I'm coming over." He informed her.
"All right." She sighed.
He hung up then. There was a schedule to go by. He kept telling himself. He was used to it. So was Evan. But everything was changing. He knew it. And it shook a bit inside him to know, that he was going to have to let her spend time with Evan.
