so it goes

Eric somehow found Kip a job in personal. Actually, it was Kip's resume that spoke for its-self. Really, Eric didn't feel he had a thing to do with it. He'd just been there at the right time when he heard about the opening.

"Happy now?" He was closed lipped. Perhaps a bit angry at having to go that far. Seriously, he doubted Kip would ever do the same for him. However, Syd's embrace warmed him up.

"Hopefully, I'll never see him." Eric sighed. He didn't have to like Kip.

"Well, he's gonna stay with Liz and Munro, you know." Syd shrugged. She kept in contact, practically daily with Liz.

"Just when did you get all chummy, with her?" He hadn't seen that coming. Always a play date on Saturday. Sometimes, he'd catch her on the phone with Liz.

"Oh, Eric, envy really does not become you." She grinned from ear to ear as she went back to the stove and left him with the little ones to deal with.

He sighed as he loosened his tie. Honestly, he didn't think he could get used to a suit everyday, but he had. His jacket was already off and he dropped his tie on the chair. Immediately, Ella got to it, to chew on.

"Since when do you like ties so much?" He stooped down to pick her up. Of course, Evan couldn't have that. He needed to be just as close too. Of course, Evan already untied his shoe and Eric feared he might trip now as he carried both to the livingroom.

Suddenly, he was feeling a tad melancholy. He understood why Syd was so peeved with him over that dinner he missed for Amanda. Of course, he'd debated the fact that Elliot wasn't even there. See, he wasn't the only one upset with Amanda and her ways.

But there was Evan chatting away about something on a TV show. Eric wasn't sure he got the jest of it, but began to try to repeat everything he'd told him in complete sentences until Evan caught on. In a bit, he could feel the results, already. He could understand his son, clear as a bell. He grinned then. Ella played with his mouth. He sunk into the couch, the two practically on top of him. Before he knew it, Ella had her fingers up his nose.

"Don't!" Evan slapped her fingers away.

Eric blinked, had he dozed off? He put them down to go play. He went to see Syd on her cell as she was working on some ground turkey sizzling in a frying pan.

It was Liz, wasn't it? He hoped those two weren't planning for Kip to move in over the garage.

What a transition. Hopefully, he won't be mean to Kip. He's trying to be a good dad too. I bet.
