summer days

Ellie really didn't have anyone to talk too. She'd hate to ramble to the other's at work about her summer. Honestly, it was nothing big. Only something simple. She'd found someone to spend time with, with the girls.

A part of her felt so happy about this and yet she was sad. What if it was nothing like she thought it was? What if Drew didn't want to be there, after all.

He was so good putting on the show. Zoe and Chloey had to be his biggest fans. Maybe she was too.

He was easy to be around. Although, they never talked as much as she hoped they would. After all, the two girls wanted him to entertain them.

"We're going to drive him crazy." She hadn't meant to say it out loud and yet she had to tell the girls to stop bothering him so much. "He has better things to do than hang out with us."

Of course, they stopped chattering about and stared at the cauliflower with mac and cheese as if this was unacceptable.

"Eat your food," She coaxed trying to make them realize they couldn't depend on him and be so demanding. Both looked sad as if they were on the verge of tears.

A knock came to the back door. It was Drew. She gave them the eye to be quiet. Surprisingly, they were.

"What's the matter?" He smiled.

"Oh, they aren't sure about the mac'n cheese." She sat him a plate of the casserole.

"It's gotta be good. Your mom wouldn't make anything bad." His smile was open.

Ellie did her best to hold in a laugh. He really didn't know her that well, but maybe he would if the girls would quieten down.

Drew took a bite of the mac'n cheese. She was certain he'd make a face, but he kept smiling and the girls began to eat.
