Chapter 46



“I confess,” said Caroline.

“So what’s on your mind?” asked Mitch.

“I just thought it has been a while since we talked.”

“So what would you like to talk about?” asked Mitch.

“Have you talked to Abby?”


“So what are you going to do?”

“Do, what do you mean?  She left for the city.  There is no ‘do’ to be done.”

Mitch sounded rather matter of fact when he said this yet Caroline was not buying.  She had asked what Mitch’s intentions were though what she really wanted to know is what they had been from the beginning.

Caroline let her eyes meld into Mitch’s.  Her face lost expression, her mouth opened to speak then abruptly Caroline shifted her gaze back toward the window in hesitation.

“What is it?” asked Mitch.

“How could you let this happen?”

“Let happen, she decided to go back to the city.”

“That’s not what I mean,” said Caroline.  “I mean you and Abby, what were you thinking?”

Mitch raised himself off the floor and started to walk to the next room.  “We aren’t going to get into this.”

“Get into it?”  Caroline dropped her arms to her side, “She is my cousin.”

Mitch kept walking toward the kitchen and Caroline followed him.  “So what if she is, what’s your point?”

“My point is that she is my cousin and it matters to me how you feel about her.”

Mitch opened the refrigerator door when he reached the kitchen and took out a bottle of water.

“Abby is nice,” said Mitch.

“You know if she is that important to you, you should go to her,” said Caroline.

“I don’t think she wants to see me,” said Mitch.  Mitch had considered that he had put off Abby.

“Don’t be silly,” said Caroline, walking passed Mitch.  She leaned over to him, “Who wouldn’t want a cute fella like you?” said Caroline.  She gave him a quick peck on the cheek.
