I sign into my chat account to find my brother just signing off and his girlfriend invisible. Because I am curious, being me, I wait until Justin is gone and open a chat window.
MusicFreak25: Hello Katie.
KateyCat24: What do you want Amanda?
MusicFreak25: To know what you said to make Justin get off that fast…
KateyCat24: I didn't say a thing
MusicFreak25: Well considering he's sprawled out on his bed with the "shoot me now" look on his face, you have to have said something
KateyCat24: We're having a disagreement, nothing of your concern.
MusicFreak25: When it comes to my brother, everything is my concern.
KateyCat24: Was my mother really at your house last night?
MusicFreak25: Why should I tell you that if you won't answer my questions?
KateyCat24: Well it has to deal with what we talked about.
MusicFreak25: Yeah she was here. Some pretty interesting things were said too.
KateyCat24: Like what?
MusicFreak25: Like how you're mom wouldn't tell Sarah the truth.
KateyCat24: Who said that?
MusicFreak25: You know who said it. I don't need to answer that.
KateyCat24: Did she really start crying on him?
MusicFreak25: Crying would be an understatement, she was hysterical and when he said you were at home I thought she was going to kiss him then and there.
KateyCat24: for real?
MusicFreak25: Would I lie to you about him?
KateyCat24: Don't make me answer that Amanda, you're worse than a snake.
MusicFreak25: Guilty as charged. Now explain what you said to make lover boy act like this.
KateyCat24: My mom came home and freaked out last night, said when she came home she couldn't find me, that she'd been looking everywhere for me.
KateyCat24: she said that Justin told her everything, about us, about where I had been, about everything.
MusicFreak25: she was only trying to scare you…
KateyCat24: I believed her over him and now I think I've messed up Amanda… I don't know what is right anymore…
MusicFreak25: Ask your heart, ask him. Both will steer you straight kid. Justin cares the world about you and would do anything for you. Just be patient with him.
KateyCat24: Have you ever considered doing this for a living?
MusicFreak25: Doing what?
KateyCat24: Counseling people.
MusicFreak25: I couldn't. I don't have the patience to sit and listen to other people's problems.
KateyCat24: Well you certainly give good advice
MusicFreak25: It comes with the territory.
KateyCat24: I'm pretty sure he won't talk to me again though…
MusicFreak25: Let me go and talk to him… be back in a sec
Rising from my bed I walk across the hall to Justin's room. His door is closed so I slip in to see him lying sprawled across his bed, tears on his cheeks, sound asleep. Walking over to stand by his bed I place a since card next to his hand, on it was the words, "get on chat ASAP. I may have a surprise for you." Then I leave him there in peace, hopefully to sleep this off.
Getting back on my computer I open the chat window again.
MusicFreak25: I'm back
MusicFreak25: He's asleep but he'll be on in a little while, I'll stay on and help get the conversation started, then I'm leaving.
KateyCat24: Thank you.
Leaning back from my laptop I begin to think about what all I know about this chick. I know she has cancer, I know she isn't supposed to make it past Thanksgiving. I know my brother really likes her, I know she has been sick with it for almost two years. But why does Justin like her and why doesn't he do something about it? He's two months older than her and he's dated before… what's so different about this time? Hearing a ping I look down to see he signed on. Opening a group chat I invite him and Katie to join me.
MusicFreak25: I'm going to start this conversation differently.
RckStr48: How come Amanda? What's so different about this chat from the others we've had?
KateyCat24: I'm here
RckStr48: Why are you here?
MusicFreak25: I invited her into this chat to explain some things to you.
RckStr48: There's nothing to talk about. I f***ed up and now I'm paying for it.
KateyCat24: I took your advice Justin and I asked her about what happened. I'm sorry
Leaning back, I watch the conversation between them fold out. I had said I was starting it differently and I did; now hopefully they fix this by themselves.
KateyCat24: She told me what happened… what my mom did and about how you covered for me. I'm really sorry Justin… I didn't mean to hurt you.
RckStr48: I know you didn't Katie.
After a while I get up and go over to the window. It's still raining and it doesn't look like it'll let up anytime soon. I wonder if Jason is home…..
