its complicated

Amanda jumped at the chance when Roxie said she'd trim her hair for free. Of course, she had to pick the kids up from daycare and have her hair done in Roxie's kitchen. The kids were OK in the livingroom watching TV. It was all good.

"I have this thing I have to do with Rosie." Amanda remembered out loud. "She wants to see the girl that Kyle broke up with." She hated to call Amber a girl, but she didn't have kids.

Roxie didn't say anything. She combed out Amanda's hair and began to snip with the scissors.

"Its weird, because, well, I should be on Doyle's side, because I've known him forever. And his boyfriend is with Amber now."

"Sounds complicated." Roxie mentioned as she combed her wet hair and started to shape her bangs.

"Oh, you knew Kyle back in high school." Amanda smiled.

Roxie only nodded. Amanda started to ask how well she knew him, but she didn't. Maybe some things were better not to know.

"I didn't even know Roger was gay." Roxie finally said with a grin.

"Well, Doyle wouldn't tell me. I thought he would. I don't know why he didn't." Amanda rambled on. A part of her felt her crazy self. "You know I'm getting divorced as soon as the baby is born." She finally decided, as if Roxie would tell her not too.

"Sorry, I -I." She stopped cutting her hair. It was quiet.

Amanda squinted. Why couldn't she just keep her mouth shut. After all, this was a free haircut.

Hairdressers do seem to have the magic touch for making client's talk. :/

Ah sometimes hairdressers just don't talk to you, other times they talk too much haha. Luckily mine is somewhere in between! The immediate divorce after the child's birth is a bit crazy though!

Part one was the conspirator which was posted on Monday . The first one doesn't have the part one though because I did not write therefore unable to change it. Since it was a new release and I have another going up on Monday so I couldn't post it then. Sorry if that sounded too complicated :)
