Of course, Leon was taken by surprise. He'd came along because Tyra asked him too, and Tyra would have never suggested to come to their house on her own. She was plenty shy.
But she was happy to see Rox and Jasmine, Kyle could see this might turn into a weekly thing. He could easily see, they wanted to come here. Jasmine brought egg rolls and Tyra brought cupcakes. Still Jai only wanted Leon to himself.
"What is wrong with that kid?" Leon only laughed when Rosie came to the rescue.
"He just doesn't see many of his relatives." Rosie explained, pulling Jai off of him. Although, it was easy to see Jai missed his dad. Kyle understood.
After dinner was done, and he washed the dishes while the girls looked through photo albums and talked about when they were growing up, he cornered Rox.
"You're gonna invite Jared to the wedding, aren't you?" Kyle pressed a smile, even if he felt a bit uneasy about it. Not that he thought Jared would come and make a mess of things. After all, he had his own family in Chicago.
"I hadn't thought about it." Rox looked shocked.
"When is the last time Jai's seen his dad?" Kyle squinted, thinking back that Jai was here all summer.
"He's..he's busy." She acted as if she couldn't trouble him.
"Lets think about taking a trip to Chicago. Before winter sets in. I could get a couple of days off." Kyle told her.
"We've got a wedding to plan." Rox sounded as if she didn't like the idea.
"Well, at least invite him." He noticed Jai, practically tackling Leon again to get his attention.
"OK." She shrugged.
Kyle nodded. "Guess, I should ask Leon if he wants to be in the wedding."
Rox kissed him on the cheek then. It looked like this wedding was getting bigger than they planned.
