But I'm not gonna help you up
"So has Matt just moved in with us permanently..or what?" Amanda wasn't sure if she could take another day of a certain someone sleeping on their couch. She gave Asa a cross look, who was taking his leisure time on his laptop in bed. He looked super studious in his black framed glasses, but she had a feeling he was reading Anime online.
It was the holidays, and she was hoping for some time with Pearl, but what would Elliot think if he came over to find a drunk in their livingroom. "He's just an accident, waiting to happen."
Not that Matt drank at their house. Usually, he'd call about ten or so at night, asking for a ride to their place. Then he'd crash in the livingroom.
"He is not." Asa begged to differ. He shut his laptop and took off his glasses. "We go way back."
"Well, how far back do you have to go? When he's here ...ALL THE TIME."
"All right, he has a problem." Asa admitted. "But I wouldn't want him driving."
"Doesn't he have a family he needs to go home too?" Amanda was tired of him, using there's. "I just want it to be us. Not some stranger in the livingroom."
"He's not a stranger." Asa clarified.
Amanda gritted before she could say anymore, but the truth was..why couldn't Asa see he was enabling someone, who really needed help.
