There’s West, Uncle Boone said, nodding toward the field house. I reckon you’ll want to go see him. I think he’s probably looking for you.
And the whole Josh thing? she asked.They didn’t start dating right away. In fact, they didn’t start dating for well over a year. But I still felt betrayed when they did, even though I had no right to feel that way. And even though Josh asked me if it would be okay. I guess I felt like . . . when I was ready to get married, Molly would be around for that.
He sighed and let go of her hand.Anyway, we dated, I was an asshole, eventually I apologized for being such an asshole, Josh is a great guy, last night she married him. There, the whole story, more or less.She tightened the sheet around her body and turned to him.
So . . . this wedding was kind of your penance, then? she asked him.He leaned against one of the pillows they’d pushed out of the way during the night and finally met her eyes.
I guess so, he said. Maybe that’s one reason why I was dreading it so much. And why I needed a sandwich so badly.
He hoped that she’d laugh at that, but she didn’t. She didn’t even meet his eyes.While they were still gasping with laughter, he heard the jingle of his ringtone. He pulled his phone out of his pocket. Jessie, probably calling to check on the status of her enchiladas.
Hey, Jess! he said, with laughter still in his voice. Don’t worry, they’re in the oven. I’ll bring them over for your nice big freezer tom—Carlos, I’m at the hospital. They’re saying I have to have the baby now. I’m scared.
What? He’d never heard this panicked tone in Jessie’s voice before. Back up, tell me what’s going on.He moved out of the kitchen into the living room.
