Andy calls Cass up early on a Friday morning. " Hey chica! My parents are out of town for about ten days. Holly and I are having some friends over tomorrow evening, Nothin fancy...just some bbq and hangin out. You should come! And bring your fantastic artichoke dip you always make for parties. Oh, and bring your man too! We'd like to meet him. It's pretty obvious y'all are in love." Cass is silent, bottom lip quivering. Barely audible, she whispers "umm. I think he's working". Why the hell do I have to lie to them, she thinks as she hangs up the phone. Oh right, Because I don't know how to explain that we are in love...but I can't contact you directly because I know you don't want me to. All their months of playing drawing with friends and making photo collages of each other and them together has been difficult to smile about.
