"River?" Jane asked in confusion.
River wished Danie was there so he could punch him. "He asked me to tell you how sorry he was. I was coming into town to see my folks, so I thought I'd drop by to see you, too."
Distracted, Jane nodded. "Oh. Great. Thanks."
River desperately tried to think of anything to cheer her up. Daniel didn't think she'd realize he was moving on, but the look on her face said it all! Lamely, he said, "He's just busy with his term papers..."
Jane threw on a smile. "Of course! Geez, I knew that! Umm... thanks for coming by River. It's been really great seeing you again!" Jane didn't want to break down into tears in front of him. It was bad enough she broke up with him for loser-Daniel, but he'd also think she was a big un-cool baby! Running past him into the house, she headed straight to her room and flopped on the bed.
Jane didn't care. She was beyond caring!
Without giving her much time to consider the consequences, she called up the only person she could think of that could help her with her plan to get over loser-Daniel.
She almost changed her mind then & there. But she had a mission. Operation-Forget-About-Daniel!
"Are you sure about this Jane?" Edwin asked.
"Oh just get it over with!" she complained.
Chuckling, he pulled her into his arms and kissed the daylights out of her.
Oh wow, she thought to herself. So that's what all the fuss was about! Edwin really was an excellent kisser!
Whispering, Chelsea said, "You do realize he's growing up, don't you?"
Ross glanced up, "I can still read him a story to sleep, can't I?"
"Of course, but he's a teenager now. He's going to want you to see him as a man, not a boy!"
Grumbling Ross put the book down and struggled to stand up. "Gah, this gimp knee! Getting up from the floor isn't as easy as it used to be!"
Jennings finished the last few problems & then trudged over to the table. He was trying to think of what he could've done wrong. "What's up Mom?" he asked.
Chelsea smiled. "Nothing's wrong. I've just been thinking that you might enjoy going to a private school."
"My grades are good, Mom!" he protested.
"I know they are. I'm not suggesting private school as a punishment! I just know how seriously you take your school work. I thought you might enjoy being in a different environment."
Jennings thought about it. It would be pretty neat to go to a different school where he wasn't always the twins un-cool brother. "I... I think I'd like that Mom."
Chelsea smiled. "Good. Then I'll talk to your Father about it tonight."
Roxanne frowned, "Do you think he's moved on?"
"I don't know! But, he should've called more, shouldn't he have?"
Roxanne worried her bottom lip, "I just don't know!"
Hopping up, Jennings grabbed the bench pillow and whacked Roxanne in the shoulder. "Then don't think about it!"
