Her dad gives a jerky nod.
As soon as I finish my accounting classes, which Lilly suggested I take. When I first came to Hope Center, I was afraid to dream of anything good happening in my life. Lilly asked me to come up with a dream and I told her Id only be setting myself up for failure. Do you remember what you told me? I asked her.Sure do. The same thing Ive told these women. Any dream will do. Allow yourself to dream.
I felt someone come up behind me and discovered it was Linda. The van is loaded. Its time for us to leave.After hugging Lilly goodbye, I headed out with Linda and the other two.I sat in the front seat with Linda. Stephanie and Kelly were in the back, chatting away.
I didnt mean to rush you, Linda murmured.You didnt. I noticed that her hands were holding on to the steering wheel in a death grip. Shed seemed to be in a rush ever since shed taken that phone call. Id noticed that shed grown quiet and intense afterward.
Not sure if I should say anything about the call or not, I watched her out of the corner of my eye and then decided I had to say something to break the tension. Linda, I dont mean to pry, but did something happen earlier?
What do you mean? she asked defensively.Rex rolls his brown eyes. Thats what everyone says.
I nudge him, already taken with his casual demeanor and playful attitude. Hes fun, non-threatening, and not at all aggressive—unlike a few other guys Ive met on campus.Come on, just tell me.
Fine. He lets out a groan. Its short for Reginald.Reginald? I dont think Ive ever met a person under the age of eighty named Reginald.
