4.17 Different Ways
Taylor comforted her. As her job involved a lot of death and violence, she was more conditioned to these situations. She was upset, but her outlet for grief was to help others grieve in their own ways.
Lucas had wandered off somewhere. Rose and Myles weren't worried, they knew everyone dealt with grief in different ways.
But the way things turned out, she wished she could get to him and torture him like he deserved.
How can he say things like that? He barely knows me, so why would my friends be important to him?
"You. In the tabloids. I'm sorry about that." She replied, thinking quickly. She wasn't one to talk about her feelings towards him, and she wasn't really sure where they stood. She wasn't about to say something and have him shoot her down.
"Don't be sorry, it's not your fault that these people have nothing better to do than make up stories about other people. Just ignore them, take it as a compliment that they want to be near you." Kaity shook her head. She knew it had hurt him seeing himself in the papers, especially the article that all but accused him of the stabbing. She was used to it, she didn't even read the papers usually, just threw them straight in the bin, but Winter was used to reading with his breakfast so she'd kept them aside for him, not realising what was written inside.
"Kaity. I think I can stop reading the paper in the morning if it means I get to help raise my son." Kaity almost giggled at how stupid she must've sounded. It was the closest she'd come to laughter in two weeks.
"Of course I am!"
"I thought you'd leave tomorrow and never come back."
"Well, you're an idiot then." He accused playfully, kissing her hair and gently tickling her waist and making her fidget.
Lucas, in reality, has dropped off the face of simplanet. I'm hoping it's just in my alternate save, but I don't think he'll be a big part of the story anyway. Just weird.
Sorry about lack of action, needed to start wrapping all that murder stuff up because it's depressing and I have other things to come. This generation is going to be a long one. Chapter 17 and the heir has just been born? (Although there are a few that I read that didn't have a birth at all until they were in their 30's. Some that still haven't at that stage...)
Also, sorry for the weird lighting, that's EA for you, and the odd clothing theme... Yeah, my game would have crashed countless times if I'd gone in and changed their formalwear! So, cocktail dresses it was.
