But is there bacon?
A table piled high with bacon wouldn’t make her flaunting over him any more appealing. Or trying to treat us like we’re her kids.
Nothing better than being forced to act like a big happy family, huh?
We haven’t been a big, happy family since we moved to Lakeview. I’d rather not try and pretend like it’s all fine and dandy.
And this is why I went to the bookstore first thing this morning.
Shit, you’ll never hear me repeat this, but I wish you’d woken me up for that. Actually, I need a book to read on the plane, did you grab me one by chance?
hi. check this. because i said so.
look for your name. make sure all your characters are listed. check their upcoming class year (for the fall).
if it’s wrong, tell me.
No Kandi, I do not want to have family breakfast just because it’s Father’s Day.
Sort of. Don’t you?
Nah, she knows, you’re on my list.
Maybe. Why don’t we give it a shot, then? And find out.
Don’t you have a girlfriend you need to clear it with first?
I don’t- you think I’d rather stay here? I’d rather be in New York, in the New York Public Library in the desk where I carved my initials into when I was eight.
Enjoy your life in California with Fiona. She’s a lovely person.
I’d rather be home too, Dalton, fucking riding the B back and forth just because there’s air conditioning, and riding the ferris wheel for four hours because it made Morgan feel like she could fly. But shit’s different, and I’m done pretending it will all go back to the way it was.
The invite to come stay with me is an open one. So if you figure out you want me to still be your brother, just let me know.
No, yeah, nothing big or anything.
…What’s the matter, L2?
It’s not real?! Now my after graduation plans are totally shot to hell! Damn it!
Maybe you’ll get lucky and meet that Inspector Spacetime, babe.
Again, the biggest distraction. You’re out to kill me.
Not that I’m going to mind, but that’s definitely not my point.
You could get your own place, but I mean, if you’re going to be living in my bed most of the week anyway, I don’t see the point.
See, that’s different. Because I’m physically involved and you’re totally hot.
I don’t know, man. I might need some proof. For all I know, you’ll get so excited to see my hot naked body you’ll just fucking cum right there.
I could watch shows. Kind of. Just nothing that goes above forty minutes or so. I get bored.
Shit, how do you have marathon sex? I don’t want no minute man.
I like the movie, John. I’m just comfortable.
Suck it up. I’m moving out in like…two fucking weeks, and I want to watch a movie with you.
I don’t know where you got the impression that I’m the slightest bit happy from, considering you’re either with Fiona or avoiding us completely for you to notice. Nor do I understand how me getting along with Kandi should affect how I feel about mom- and, for your better knowledge, I do miss her. Excuse me for not particularly liking the idea of my brother moving across the country.
I’m not avoiding you, no one’s fucking talked to me since I got home from rehab. And Fi’s about the only one who actually gives a shit where I go or what I do with my future. So yeah, Dal, it sucks that I’m moving across the country, but it also sucks that our family hasn’t been a family in months. But I’m not going to give up my life, and I’m not going to abandon my girlfriend because you’re unhappy about it. I’m fucking trying to include you here, invite you out to see the new place and hang out with me. Don’t be a dick because you’d rather stay in Lakeview.
