"Mom and Dad are going to kill me," she thought suddenly.
"Where were you?" Acai asked.
"You can't go to sleep. You have to get to school!"
Another grunt from under the covers.
"Yes, absolutely!" she said, shoving a book in her backpack. "Gotta go."
I shook my head. "Wait. Roll that by me one more time. My fault? What?"
She pointed a finger in my direction. "You said he wanted to propose to me."
"Okay? And that's my fault how?"
She wiggled her ring-less finger in my direction. "He hasn't done it yet!"
"Okay? And this concerns me how?"
One... two... three girls stared back at me.
"None in sight."
Xander recently purchased a ring if this receipt here is telling the truth. If he's got the ring, I wonder why it hasn't been delivered yet? Maybe his trash can will tell the next chapter of this tale.
Xander recently purchased a bouquet of flowers, a lovely arrangement, but threw them away. Cold feet? Too nervous to ask? Perhaps Xander realized how nutty his girlfriend is.
I gave the news to Zelda, who refused to admit she can be a bit overbearing and intense. I guess that means she won't get the ring anytime soon. I got paid, so it isn't my problem. I felt bad for the girls, though.
Acai nudged Citron, "Shush," she cautioned him.
Citron, being unable to lie, spilled that Bitter Melon had never made it in to school.
"Acai made the honor roll because she worked hard and went to school!" I pointed out, trying to make Bitter Melon see the error of her way.
"I'm not Acai!" she argued.
Bitter Melon scowled. "I didn't mean to skip. I was just going to take a nap. I had a weird night last night."
She started to tell me about the house in the cove.
I interrupted her. "You're grounded, Bitter Melon! You're not to leave this house except for school for 2 days!"
