"It was good, I guess. I wanted to get started on my term paper right away, though!"
"Me too!" Ross exclaimed. "Let's work on them together!"
Chelsea nodded sweetly and Ross leaned forward to kiss her on the lips.
Sonja had so much fun with Dean Landry. He was so funny and in such great shape! She had tried to catch his attention...
Michelle winked at him and whispered, "I hear there's a photo booth upstairs that has seen a little action..."
Quinn's ears perked up. "Oh yeah... is that a fact?"
Michelle kissed him deeply and then grabbed his hand to pull him along with her. "Let's go find out!"
Jenny rolled her eyes. "You think you're all that," she teased.
"Care to find out?" he offered. He was surprised to hear her laugh.
"No way, little man. I don't date men with heads bigger than their shoulders."
"Hey! That's not nice!"
Jenny waved goodbye over her shoulder. "Ciao, little man!"
Clint rolled his eyes. "And on that note, I'm going to go make some phone calls!"
"Oh come on! Everyone ran around in their underwear back in college!"
Casey sighed. "I know. It just makes her uncomfortable. And... she asked that you use the bedroom if you're going to make out... not the couch..."
"God. Does she have any more rules?"
"Marry me, Autumn. Let's start a family like you've been talking about!"
Casey laughed as he flexed his muscle. "You can't hurt me, old man!"
Clint punched again. "I'm only older than you by a few seconds!"
"Yeah, but those few seconds make a difference!"
She crossed her arms as she watched him across the room. "Casey... something has to give. We can't raise our kids with that example..."
Casey rubbed his hand on his neck. "But Autumn..."
"Don't drop me!" Kate laughed as her fiance literally swept her off her feet.
"Are you ready for company soon-to-be Mrs. Reed?"
Kate gazed into Ralph's eyes. "More than ready! I can't wait!"
Kate hugged her Mom. "I know! I'm so excited! And Ralph has been great!"
He tried to make me breakfast one morning...
Ralph looked dubiously at the pancakes. "I don't know... I know I taste the burn..."
"Do you like it?" he asked.
"It's lovely. I love your home!"
Lily sighed. "I don't know Gabe. I'm just so... sad..."
"Well get over it! You're not wishing you were still with Levi, are you?"
"No! Of course not! I'm happy here! With you.."
"Well, you have a funny way of showing it," Gabe groused. He was so frustrated with Lily's moping around the house.
"Lily!" he called. "Come on, go change out of the bathrobe. We're having a dinner party! Of yeah, and roses!" he exclaimed as he handed it to her.
"A dinner party?!" she screeched. "But I'm not ready!"
Trevor hushed her. "Quiet!"
Claire whispered back, "What... I was just asking what we were all thinking!"
Gabe just watched Lily to see how she reacted. He was curious himself.
"Umm..." Lily said, clearing her throat. "I kind of remember the people... and I sort of remember the things that happened in my life... I just don't feel like I used to... That doesn't make sense."
"I would die if I couldn't remember my kids!" Claire added.
"Was it something I said?" Claire asked.
Lily glanced over her shoulder. "Well I'm not. I'm trying to go to sleep."
"Fine!" Gabe plumped his pillow and turned his back to her.
Lily sighed. She thought that everything would magically be better when she left Levi's house. But, there were just as many problems here as there were there! What was she going to do?
