Emily was home just in time to listen to Bella cry all over again about Gordy.
"You are the most insensitive person I've ever know," Bella told Emily.
"Oh really," Emily felt like having a shouting match with her sister but as she could see she was a wreck. Couldn't even make it to Walgreen's and back with her baby.
"Just shut up, you don't know how it is," Bella sniffed at a tissue while Emily went to microwave her sister a cup of something for warmth.
"What? That you want Gordy back?" Emily shrugged. "That's pretty normal for you."
"Its not like that. Its like he avoids me all the time now." She got more tissue and blew her nose.
"Well, you haven't exactly been reaching out, you know," Emily recalled. "You never call Jane, and you told her you would. Just because she's a baby doesn't mean she doesn't understand, she does. And she's told me a thing or two about Gordy."
"That's confidential," Emily brought Bella some of her Camille tea.
"Just tell me!" Bella blurted out.
"No, I can't. I won't," Emily shook her head thinking what Casper had told her when she found out Gordy was sleeping with Rachel. "Its just you've moved on. He's moved on. Just let it go, B."
"God, I remember how he used to miss me, and all. And, and-"
"You make it sound like he was a fan in your fan club," Emily sighed. "I just don't get you, how you can just think that's all you need, everyone fawning over B. Get real. Will you? You just want Fish to work his ass off, and for what? So you can treat him like crap when he gets home. B you were never a princess. So quit expecting a fortune when you know its not gonna happen." Emily hugged herself then and walked away.
Naturally, she knew Bella wasn't going to ask about her day. She didn't do things like that. And Emily really wasn't in the sharing mood. She'd been on her feet most of the afternoon. She was sure she'd be sick with the flu soon. And really, they had to be thankful there mother didn't talk like a diva from a honky tonk and tell Bella's kids she was going to hurt them if they didn't straighten up, every thirty seconds.
Couldn't Bella see she had so much to be thankful for?
