Scene set up: Our fearless Hell Kat is at the airport picking her brother Tyler up. He has just returned from a deployment to Iraq. He has with him, five Force Recon Marines who he has invited to stay for the summer.... with Hell Kat. She's not happy.
"I told them they could stay with us." He paused clearing his throat, "For the summer."
Tyler tightened his grip on my shoulder, keeping me firmly rooted to the vomit-colored industrial carpet. I don't know what I had written on my face, but I know it didn’t say, "I'm so glad! Please come and stay in my home. You're always welcome." In fact, I'm almost positive my face said, "WTF!"
Come back next week for more!
