Gordy was pretty happy for Rachel.
"I just wish you'd told me, about this Jared." He didn't understand why she hadn't.
"Because, you would have thought it was all in my head," Rachel said while they were making dinner. He was peeling potatoes while she was seasoning chicken to broil.
"Why would you say that?" Gordy shrugged.
"You would have, you just would," she shook her head, no. "You think I'm the type who interprets everything thing the wrong way. Like, maybe I think every guy wants me, or something."
"I never thought that." Gordy hoped this wasn't a trick. It felt impossible to say the right thing. "Of course, I think, guys find you attractive. Its just I hoped you'd let me know if someone was making you feel uncomfortable, you know."
"All right, I will." She sighed.
He got the potatoes on then.
"But that's behind you now. Now you are just amazing, you know that." He came up from behind her and wrapped his arms around her. He kissed the side of her face. "Perhaps we should get you that touch iPod now." He couldn't exactly afford the phone, but there were plenty of cool features on the iPod.
"I don't need that." She told him. "Save your money."
Gordy never thought he'd hear such words. Somehow, he loved her more, but he still thought he should get Rachel something.
