Chris blew in the front door breathlessly and slammed it shut behind him. He threw his arms in the air, "It's official! We close on the house on Tuesday!" I looked up from scraping carrots and put the peeler down. "That is in, like, 3 days." "I KNOW! FINALLY!" "Oh my gosh" I said. "Wow."… Continue reading

Worth Something? – by: Odette

I took my hands away from my face and looked up to see Chris peering over me. "What's up?" "I totally blew it," I said. "Why do you even let me out in public?" He looked confused, but amused.

Immunity – by: Odette

I didn't know what to think when Evan came and sat down next to Chris and I at the bonfire, smoothing out the blanket so he wouldn't get sand on his khakis. We just kind of stared at him and he nodded at us. I hadn't seen him for about two weeks, since he got… Continue reading Immunity – by: Odette
