I know that whatever youve done or will do, youve done it to protect Harper and me.
Maybe she understood that better now because she felt the same way about Daniel. She looked over at him, getting soda out of the fridge, and she couldnt help but smile. Being away from him at college was hard, but both she and Daniel knew it was the right thing to do.Now, with their dad dating again, being away from him and Gemma felt even stranger. She called her dad and Skyped with him, but, Harper was still afraid she might miss something.
Brian had met Sarah at Pearls a couple of weeks ago. When she talked to her dad on the phone, hed sounded so much happier lately, and Harper was pleased to see him finally moving on. Honestly, with Gemma talking about going to Sundham after high school, Harper had begun to worry about their dad being alone in that house, but now it sounded like he was finding happiness for himself outside his daughters.Gemma was doing a fairly good job of keeping Harper apprised of their relationship. But she was chomping at the bit to meet the new woman in her dads life.Parents dating is so gross, Marcy said. She reached over and tried to put her finger in the frosting, but Harper slapped it away just in time.
People putting their hands in food is even grosser, Harper said, and Marcy stuck her tongue out.If our mom could date, shed definitely be pining for some Cody guy, said Gemma.
Cody who? Marcy asked.
Gemma shook her head. I dont know, but she took down all the Justin Bieber posters and replaced them.He was walking—

I thought you never stepped in to help me, he said drily, raising a brow.In the chair, yes. You have much farther to fall now.
