Bears - Round 24
Irving smiled. "I can't wait, Dad!"
"I can't wait to go to college, too!" Nelson interjected. It annoyed him that Dad always seemed to favor Irving - the smart one. Geez, Dad acted like nobody had ever gone to college before.
Irving rolled his eyes. "Only because you want to meet more girls," he snapped.
"Boys! That's enough," Randy said sternly. "That's no way to talk to each other."
Irving and Nelson mumbled their apologies.
He was about to go off to college and had never even been on a date. He'd been focused too much on school and work, there hadn't been any time leftover for someone special.
And it would be nice... maybe he could find a nice girl...
"Aw, is dweebie Irving on a date?" Nelson teased as he walked by the room.
Irving felt the blood tingle through his body. He'd never been more angry than this moment, on the verge of saying something unforgivable to his brother...
Nelson's mouth dropped open. He wasn't used to girls not falling over him. Turning on his heel, he stalked away without another word.
Savannah blushed. "You think I'm beautiful?" she asked shyly.
Leaning forward, he kissed her tenderly. "I do."
Savannah sighed as Irving pulled away. "I think you're amazing, too."
