so it goes
"Well, he believes it, or he did." She said while they were packing to leave. "He was so in hopes they'd find out she's pregnant, but thank God, she's not."
Her braid was coming loose, and Ravi was so close to fixing it, but thought it best to just listen. He was anxious to leave. He'd been here two days longer than he wanted to.
Olivia looked up at him.
"I told him everything." Olivia looked a bit sad about it, as if she alone had ruined everything.
"Everything?" Ravi squinted hard. "I don't even know what everything is?" He plopped down on the king sized bed as he watcher her zip up the luggage.
"Amber had an abortion as soon as she left Roger. And..and now she's on all these anti-depressants, which I don't think are all that good for her. She's gained weight." Olivia shrugged.
"I thought that was just, you know, being happy in love and marriage weight gain, or ..maybe pregnant." Ravi knew he wouldn't be in any big investigation soon... back at work, even if he'd been asked if he'd be a school narc. He really did like his job. Even if it were kind of boring. "How did he take it?"
"He's kind of stubborn, but he does love her and I don't think its over. He really wants to be there for her. I knew she should have told him. But she kept thinking it would be so awful. She was making it worse, you know." Olivia did look tired.
"So, you think I can get out of here?" Ravi finally grinned. It was enough talk about Amber and Scott, even if Olivia was a little worried that Amber might not ever speak to her again.
"Highly doubtful, but I'll let you try." She smiled sweetly at him as she stood before him with her suitcase ready to wheel. It was time to go home. He wanted to get home a day early so he could sleep in.
"OK, I've been studying the map, we can go to Las Cruces, then El Paso, up to Pacos, keep going to Ft. Worth."
"We can do all that? In a day?" She shook her head with a smile.
"Maybe." He smiled back and leaned toward her until their noses touched. "We'll take turns driving." After all, they were a team now.
