Chapter 4

Rick walked into the living room and saw that Lydia was almost ready to go. He watched her put four bottles of drinking water and a packed lunch into her backpack. Her hair was swept back in a ponytail and she wore a comfortable but flashy outfit that made her look like a female matador. He just kept watching as she laced up her rock-climbing shoes.

"That outfit is too nice to go rock climbing in," he finally said.

"No, it's not. It's made of special fibers that feel like silk but won't wear out or tear very easily."

"They make men's dress shoes?"

"Rick, did you call Kim?"

"Yeah. She didn't take any of my calls though. Her dad said she's been sick all week."

"You're going to the meeting with that teacher this afternoon?"

"What's it to you?"

"What do mean 'What's it to you?' I know what's on your mind, Ricky."

"You don't know anything."

"She's too old for you, Ricky."

Rick stood facing her. He sighed and then shook his head. The whole house became quiet and seemed to hold its breath for a second.

"You're so immature, Lydia." He put his fists on his hips.

"I know what you're thinking."

"Is your name Lydia or Debra?"

"What did Deb say to you in the lighthouse?"

He remembered what Debra had said to him and his face went ashen. All of sudden the fire in his belly to argue with his sister went out.
