"What friend?" Mamma asked smiling.
"Ben." I said, but it sounded like a question.
Daddy shifted on the couch. "Ben, huh?" He was clearly getting nervous.
I bit my lip. "Uh, yeah." I blushed.
"And he's just a friend?" Daddy pushed.
"Yes." It sounded like another question and my voice cracked.
"Hmmm." Daddy crossed his arms Read Chapter
