on the sunny side
This was new. Ravi never imagined Olivia being friends with Ryan, but here they were, making plans for something. Ryan was at their place.
"What do you two find to talk about?" Ravi asked later, not trying to be serious since there was a lot of serious business he was having to be a part of lately, at work. Like the two bodies by the lake that the news was saying it was a drowning. Even suicide. There was another case, a teenage girl found dead under a bridge, that could possibly be connected. Of course, Ravi couldn't talk about that.
"Oh, you know, girl stuff." Olivia smiled.
"Girl stuff? Ryan does girl stuff?" Ravi found that odd. Maybe.
"We are looking for places, for a wedding venue." Olivia had her calender out. There were dates written down. She was hard at work scribbling something.
"Are you a wedding planner now?" Ravi smiled. He was glad Olivia had some time to spend time with. He felt bad about the falling out with Amber, but not really. Ravi wasn't sure if Olivia could trust Amber, and he didn't want her depressed over not being the best friend in the world. Olivia didn't need that. Of course, he might have been biased. After all, he loved Olivia and she could do no wrong.
"No, she hasn't even asked Roger to marry her yet." Olivia shrugged.
"Then what are all these dates for?" Ravi winced.
"Its for a surprise." Olivia grinned.
"A surprise?" Ravi sighed with a laugh. He really couldn't think of Roger being surprised. "Why hasn't he asked Ryan?"
"I have no idea." She told him.
"And Amber isn't with..."
"I don't know if she's with her husband or not." Olivia shook her head, as if she wanted to stay out of that mess.
"Good to let things go with Amber." He put his arm around her shoulder. Squeezed her tight. He just wanted her to be safe. "You be careful, OK?" He hated to tell her about the loons around.
"I'm always careful." She looked up at him as if he had nothing to worry about. "You be careful."
