"God NO." Dustin's eyes lit. "Are you serious?" He looked at Halie, handing her a juice, where he worked at THE BLACK CAT. "Why Archie?"
"Cause, he needs someone." Halie told him. "I can't bare to think, Archie..living with those two love birds, Jax and Bash. Must be driving him insane."
"Well, maybe he's a happy chap. That Iggy took a lot out of him. Expensive too. Let Mol and her boy find him someone. You, stay out of it." He was in a even lipped pout about it.
"Josie's heart broken. She needs someone."
"Not Archie." He was no bowl of laughs. How did Dusty explain it to his girl that her so called brother was a real downer. "Just look at him, Babe. He's a sad bloke. He needs a good sorting. Don't know if there is a therapist that could help him."
"What?" Now she was all defensive.
"Sorry." Dusty guessed he didn't know. But if looks could tell, well he'd hit it on the nail about Archie.
"But the bed. Its right comfy." Dustin did have to admit.
"Yeah, comfy and all." Halie just said as she held on to the juice.
"We'll give him the bed back, if..if we must." Dustin supposed they'd have a new one, once they moved to University. But they needed to get through April and then summer. It did feel a long way off. There was Gage and Macy's visit to think on. Then his Mum's wedding. "You thinking, what I'm thinking?" He sighed.
"Yeah, we should go see him." Halie took a sip of her drink.
"Chat up Josie, I suppose. Try to give him something to look forward to, is that it?" He looked at her blankly.
"Yeah, I guess." Dustin supposed he was accustom to their circle of friends. Perhaps they were a lot tighter than they knew.
