Cara ~ Family - Card #2

You’re painting Charissa’s toenails when the doorbell rings.  Your mother answers the door and you hear that fake friendly tone she uses with telemarketers she’s trying to get off the phone.  It takes a couple of seconds to realize that she’s talking to Brian.

“Is she expecting you?”

“I don’t know,” you hear him say.

“Let me see if she’s busy.”

Your mother comes upstairs.  “Honey, what do you want me to tell him?  Do you want to talk to him?”

If you want your mom to ask him to leave, go to: FAMILY - Card #3

If you want to go downstairs and talk to Brian, go to: TOGETHER - Card #4

Brian’s Thoughts
I sat in my car across the street from her house for a couple of hours. I can see everything in her house—her mother, her little sister. I can practically read her lips. God, I hurt so bad, I feel like I’m dying. Just watching her makes me feel like we’re still connected.
What if I just knock on the door?
