like the first time I saw your face
Olivia was doing her best not to cause a scene. She hoped Ryan didn't think she hated her, but then what if Ryan didn't like her?
She went on to get the dishes done even if Leon offered. She just wanted them to go and have some fun, or whatever. She could deal with the dishes.
"What are you upset about?" Ravi wasn't going to let her do the dishes alone.
Olivia didn't want to talk about it. "You wouldn't understand." She shook her head, no and scraped the leftovers from the dishes in the trash.
"Is it Ryan? Did something happen?" Ravi winced hard.
"No." She looked at him with a gritted glare. "That's the point, I know she doesn't like me."
"Well, maybe..you aren't talking to her. I mean, him." Ravi shrugged as he rinsed the dishes and put them in the dishwasher.
"I have." Olivia slightly huffed. "I've tried." She hugged herself and watched him do the work. "Look, I know, everyone's not going to like me. I get that. Its just..I dunno what to do."
"We aren't going to be here that long, anyway. Besides, I don't really think Ryan cares about anybody but herself or Roger." He told her.
Olivia nodded. "I talked to Amber today." She almost smiled.
"Great. She's getting married." Olivia sighed.
"What?" Ravi winced then, shaking his head. "When? How?"
"Some guy she met, her first day on campus." Olivia exposed a miserable frown.
"It sounds like a disaster to me." Ravi shook his head.
"God, I'm beginning to think you don't want to get married at all." Olivia fretted.
Ravi smiled at her. She stared at him. He was laughing at her. Finally, he kissed her forehead. "You know, I want to. And we are. We find our own place, that's the first step."
