The Ortons
Nada en absoluto
Fri Jul 16, 2010 10:13pm

Derek waved with a large grin. Madison was as good as anyone. At least she didn't get moody or anything. "¿Quién es esto? " Who is this? his mother asked, her manicured hands on his shoulders.

"This is Madison," he said while she was still finishing walking over. He let her introduce the rest with just a nod to her question.

"This is my mom and dad," he said, pointing needlessly behind him.

"I'm so happy to meet you," his mom gushed in her strong Argentine accent, stepping beside her son and leaning over, touching her cheek to Madison's and did what they always did in Argentina when they got together as family. Derek didn't bother being embarrassed. She was always this way and people seemed to get over it.

"Harvey Orton," his dad was introducing himself to Madison's, shaking his hand. Harvey was born and bred American with few traditions and many barriers. It seemed to work most of the time for them. He'd talk business while his wife talked shopping.

His mom went and did the same with Madison's mom as she had done with Madison. "I'm Mayra," she said when she pulled back. "You have a lovely daughter. Muy hermoso," she added, looking at Madison. Derek could handle the rest... he just wished she'd drop the Spanish.

              Mayra nodded empathetically. Derek was always into some sort of mischief, but he was just a child. Her baby boy. He didn't know quite what he was doing and he wouldn't hurt a fly, she was sure of... more

                "Oh," Erin responded, berating herself for choosing "reading" as the word to come out of her mouth. Reading. She didn't read, not unless she was at work, or it was a romance novel, cheap and trashy... more
