“Well, let’s see. My dad owns a gas station. It’s kind of a small market too. My parents run it. I have two sisters and a brother. We have a tiny dog named Chewy. He’s annoying. Oh, my mom has a parrot, Sal. He’s annoying too but I love to mess with him. Uh, my dad’s pretty strict, I guess his parents and the way their mentality is, they expect everyone to behave. I don’t know, but my mom’s family is the total opposite, so I love when we have things together. My siblings and I always make bets. You know dumb shit, who on dad’s side is going to make a face first. Or who on mom’s side is going to get drunk first, or make an inappropriate comment.”

“You miss them don’t you?”
She ran her hand through my hair again. “I do. So much.”
“Do you still live around them?”
“No, I ended up moving states. To, to uh. To be with my girlfriend.” She pulled her hand away and I could feel the tension. I quickly sat up.
“I should get home. It’s late and..”
I felt my heart heavy now. I was being stupid. Even if she was the one always initiating things, I shouldn’t give in to her. I don’t think I could take another heartbreak. Especially not from Kota.
