"You know what you should do." Naturally, my cousin Will was full of answers. At least for me, not himself. That was the way it worked. Always Mr. Helpful.
"What?" I was getting ready for work while he was raiding the fridge. He'd eat anything. Of course, you'd never know it. He was so fit. A runner at that. He practically lived here. I was beginning to think he might have a thing for my Mom too. He certainly liked to be around her, enough. But whatever.
"Just forget about him." He gave me almost an impish smile. I hadn't even been talking about Jess.
"I'm not talking about this with you." I rolled my eyes.
"Seriously, just don't think about him." He was digging to find a piece of fruit.
"Yeah, and why don't we go to the zoo and watch the polar bears?" I looked at him as I watched him find last nights leftovers of Mom's Mac n Cheese.I knew Will, he was still wondering when Angie was going to let him actually meet her at work. She was quite a recluse. I really couldn't see them hitting it off, but he seemed to have this dream to fulfill and I couldn't crush it, evidently.
"Maybe we should, you have tomorrow afternoon off, right?" He looked at me.
"You'd really be seen with this?" I made a face.
"Haha..very funny." He remarked. "We could feed the ducks."
"The fish." I hugged myself.
"We need to do something. I'm in this slump." He sighed. So was I.
