Now you're just scaring me

"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 and easy to flip through. Mayra seemed kind, though, and passionate. Erin did not want to have anyone expecting her to polish off a Dostoevsky novel in a month, but if they were all mothers, maybe it wouldn't be that bad.

"Right here in Pittsburgh," Erin answered. They lived in the older section of town, in a house far nicer than they could afford, but they still lived with Joe's mother, who was quite possibly Erin's very best friend. Seena had been feeling under the weather this afternoon, though, otherwise she would have come along. Erin constantly fretted over what she would do when the old woman was gone. "But travel's nothing, I can apparate."

It was a small piece of pride for her - she was better at apparation than Devon, even, who seemed to take first place in nearly everything else.

"Maybe the two of them could . . . play?" Erin guessed, trying, "While I meet her? We could all do lunch," she added suddenly, distraught at the thought of meeting another person without some connection between them.

          Erin was shocked to hear that Mayra would rather sleep alone in a hotel, without her husband, than endure the discomfort of apparation. She would travel miles for Joe, in any manner possible, with... 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
