new beginnings and other thoughts
"OK," Kyle understood Rox was upset about Jazmin letting Jared move in. "Maybe..its not what you think." He smiled as if it might not be nearly as bad as she thought it was.
"Oh, but it is. I know. He's using her." Rox jumped to the conclusion.
"Well, she might be using him too." Kyle told her it worked both ways.
Rox shook her head as if this just made her sick. She thought he should be with his wife, no matter what. "Isn't that what marriage is about?"
"Yeah." Kyle nodded. He took her hand then. "You just have to let it go. OK? Maybe he felt wronged. He's trying to do the right thing by being here, close to Jai, right?"
Dinner was still thawing in the kitchen.
"How about we order pizza?" He shrugged, knowing she was frazzled.
"I'm sorry," she said about not cooking the casserole she was going to make. "Its just..you know..ever since Amanda.." He saw she was teary eyed. He wrapped his arms around her. Kyle thought of Asa. He wondered how he was doing.
