everyday things

open your eyes


Camille was happy for Franny.

"Why didn't you tell us?" Camille would have done something for Franny and Nate if she'd known they'd gotten married.

"It was a surprise." Franny smiled. After all, Sawyer had stayed with Syreeta's parents when they made the weekend trip. They were only going to Kansas City for barbecue. "We just did it." Of course, they'd had a marriage license for some time.

"So how's Zac taking it?" Camille didn't see much of him. He was busy with something. His band. She supposed.

"Fine. I guess." Franny didn't seem worried.

Camille kept smiling, thinking Franny was the last person she ever thought would remarry. Suddenly, she was inspiring. It was giving her an idea. Although, she knew she shouldn't.

"Who really popped the question?" Camille was curious.

"I dunno. I think we decided together. Actually." Franny smiled as if it were mutual. As if she and Nate were on the same page about everything.

They went to have tea in Franny's kitchen. Camille wondered what Duncan would do if she were to propose to him. It would probably freak him out. Besides, who would really want to marry a pregnant woman like her? She was older and ..she was making herself depressed thinking of the possibility. It was probably best to forget it.

"What are you thinking?" Franny wanted to know as she poured the caffeine free tea for them.

"It was nothing." Camille smiled. "Probably the worst nightmare ever."

I'd love to see her and Duncan as a real couple.

Poor Camille, I feel that she has come so far lately, but she is still so hard on herself.
