"Can you stay for awhile?" he'd asked her, hoping to convince her to make out a little.
Annaleigh had frowned. "Actually, I have to get going. I just came into town for a family party."
"Will I see you before you leave?" Kennedy asked, feeling desperate.
Annaleigh pulled out of his arms. "We'll see. I'm not really sure. I'll call you tonight."
Kennedy watched her go. Not a good sign, he thought morosely.
"God, Kennedy. Take a chill pill! I just said that you were playing the piano loud." Looking at his little brother, Eli, she asked, "What's his problem?"
Eli kicked his feet as he watched tv with Sidney. "Annaleigh dumped him."
Kennedy put his hands on his hips. "She did not dump me! She was just... busy.."
Sidney got to her feet and hugged Kennedy. "I'm so sorry, Kennedy. Are you okay?"
Kennedy pulled away. "She didn't dump me!" he said tersely before going upstairs.
Sidney looked down at Eli.
"She dumped him," he said simply.
Should be a piece of cake, right?
