what goes around comes around

what goes around comes around




Omaha felt misplaced. What were they trying to do to him? It was Taylor who dragged him along to this thing. It was Gage who told them to come to his house.

"Just bring pampers." Gage made it sound so simple.

Omaha took a deep breath. He didn't know these people.

It was kind of like one of those school dances where the males were on one side of the room and the females on the other. He was hoping the guys would move it outside. But everyone seemed to be gathering about the soon to be father at this shindig, and he wasn't leaving the baby-momma's side.

Omaha looked around, thinking he really needed something in this drink. Not that he was an alcoholic. Although, he came from a long line of alcoholics. Most had died at a young age. It was the feds who got his Dad for drugs, but his Uncle got ran over by a Mac truck in the dead of night on the interstate when he was drunk. And his grandfather croaked at a bar. Needless to say, Omaha did not drink. But on this occasion, he wished he did..so maybe he could fit in.

Taylor mentioned something about how he could hardly wait to be a father. Omaha, wasn't going to listen. But there was Taylor  with that goofy grin of his. Next thing Omaha knew, were some cold fingers coming across his eyes. He almost spilled his punch.

It was Sheena.

It shook him up a bit. She really knew how to surprise him. AND..she was with a date. Obviously.

Omaha looked him over. He didn't like this thin, well dressed guy, one bit. He probably made clothes for her, he thought. Who wouldn't want a guy like that?

He winced at the thought.

"Xander, didn't want to come by himself. His boyfriend is working tonight." She then pointed out.

"Oh." Omaha said ever so dull.

"Josie and Henry are Xander's neighbors." Sheena went on to say.

Xander shook Omaha's hand before he could think not too.

"I've heard quite a lot..about you." Xander smiled.

Omaha's eyes lit, as he looked at Sheena. Omaha faked a smile. Oh, how he wanted to get her in a corner and argue, but it was too late. Her arm was looped around his, as if they were here together, after all.

I wish Omaha wouldn't be so defensive.
