Rox was a bit peeved that she had hear all about Jazmin's engagement from her little sister Tyra. True, she wanted to spend more time with her, but not discussing all the time she'd spent with Jazmin in Chicago.
"Well, they want to do the right thing." Tyra told her over coffee. "They're having a baby."
Rox didn't mean to look so shocked.
"A baby?" Well, of course, why hadn't she thought of that? She felt as if she might drop her coffee cup when she heard the news. But she put it down carefully. "Is she OK?" She was worried about Jazmin.
"Yeah, things are great with those two." Tyra told her.
Rox didn't know if she should laugh or cry. "She doesn't even really know him, you know." Rox shook her head. "Jared likes to twist things around. He, he can be..mean."
"Really?" Tyra looked at her as if she was worried now, too.
"I-I don't think you should tell her that. It would probably make Jazmin want him more." Rox needed to keep her mouth shut. Jazmin was like that. Her sister never believed her so it was best not to say anything. "How, how are things with you and Leon?"
"Well, he started student teaching, and I think he's been offered a job. They think he's great with kids." Tyra sighed.
Rox smiled. Finally some really good news to hear.
