Me too!
Fri Jul 16, 2010 10:46pm

Madison waved gaily to Derek's parents, feeling probably as cool as she would for the whole week when Derek's mom touched her cheek. Madison tried to reciprocate, but at the same moment Mrs. Orton was standing up, Madison tried to do the cheek-touchy-thing, and ended up accidentally brushing her cheek against Mrs. Orton's chest. She blushed furiously, and sat silent for the rest of the conversation.

Erin accepted the greeting semi-awkwardly, in the form of hardly doing anything at all. She smiled, still, at the parents, finding the three of them a similar match to her own family. She had spent plenty of her married life getting curious looks in restaurants, and imagined the Ortons must feel similarly. She warmed up, then, as Joe shook Harvey's hand.

Joe gave a firm handshake in response, and a tight, but warm smile. "Joe," he introduced, and put an arm around Erin's waist, managing to have wrangled it free from her grasp. "This is my wife, Erin, and my son, Reece. Great to meet you folks." He was an excellent example to a number of other fathers double-taking in Mayra's direction; Joe held eye contact with both parents, and shook Mayra's out of consideration, polite and semi-formal as he always was. Then he kissed Erin on the cheek and excused himself: "I'm going to say hello to Devon, excuse -"

"He's talking to Eve!" Erin gasped back, eyes wide. Joe shrugged, and strode off, leaving Erin with her children, as Madison tugged a thumb to the air and grinned, "Wanna teach my brother a flying lesson?"

Erin smiled nervously at the Ortons, pulling at her turtleneck. "Um," she tried, biting her lip. She had nothing to say.

  • Nada en absolutoThe Ortons, Fri Jul 16 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... more

            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

                "Oh of course," Myra agreed. "All of us will have to get together. I will owl her tomorrow and see when she's available." She liked this woman. She was quiet, but willing to talk. She knew the... more

                    Mayra watched Erin's eyes, looking towards the man walking their way. She looked him up and down as he came over. He wasn't handsome. And as he joined them he was polite, but she wouldn't call him... more
