it could be anyone
"Who is this Matt?" Amanda wasn't against Asa having friends, but Asa wouldn't say much about him. So they, Matt and Asa, went out to lunch. Now Asa was on the phone with Rachel. Not that she was jealous, but what did she have to do with this? "I just want to know what's going on."
"You have enough to worry about it." He told her when he got off the phone. She gave him a stare down then. Obviously, she would win. "OK, he's Rachel's brother-in-law, and..I guess we go..way back." He shrugged as if he didn't have time to create a novel for her. Which was fine.
"I just wanted to know." Amanda was curious. Asa knew her friends and family, but she didn't really know his. It wasn't like he was close to Elliot now. Possibly, she was the reason why. "Then why don't you ask him over?"
"No, I'm not going to do that." Asa gently laughed, shook his head and went back to making those pigs in the blankets he was getting ready for dinner. "Besides, he's a busy guy too, you know."
"So why did you see him?" Amanda wondered if she were keeping him from something. She didn't know what. But maybe he missed church, or something.
"Rachel wanted to know what was up with him and her sister. I guess they are getting a divorce." Asa slid the buns in the oven.
"That's so sad." Amanda winced, not ever wanting to go through that again. She hugged herself.
"Well, I'm not sure Ruthie is ready for that. Its just not something they do in Rachel's family." Asa shrugged.
Amanda nodded, trying not to think about the new court day coming up, for getting Pearl back. The court cost alone depressed her. How would she ever get out of this horrible situation? She didn't even want to think about Evan or Rosie. At least Kyle let Rosie stay when ever she wanted. But Evan might as well be in Siberia. She couldn't let that happen with Pearl.
"I hope they can work it out." Amanda sighed as she went to get a salad ready for dinner. Just then the phone rang. Amanda picked up. It was Matt and he needed to speak to Asa.
