Gordy finally caught Floyd alone. He was just getting off at Walgreen's to go home and Floyd was looking at liquor.
Gordy wasn't sure what to say to him. Did he dare ask what was up with him and Serena.
"You know, we didn't get a chance to hardly visit other night," Gordy felt he'd lost his long time friend some time ago. Perhaps it was when everything fell apart with Serena. He wasn't sure. But so much had been left unsaid. It felt as if it had gone up in a puff of smoke and now there just weren't any words left to say. Perhaps Floyd had taken it all harder than Gordy suspected. Or maybe this was just a new chapter in each of their lives, and he should just leave it at that.
"You were kind of busy," Floyd grinned.
"Well, Rachel really isn't always like that." Gordy told him.
"She's feisty, all right. Bet she could out drink you too," Floyd just wouldn't stop grinning about it. "When you gonna marry her, dude?"
"Marry her? Rachel?" Gordy's eyes lit.
"You know you want too." Floyd went back to pondering over prices of whiskey then.
"What about you and Delia?" They'd stopped e-mailing each other some time ago when things were so bad after everything with Serena. Gordy still hadn't felt like getting in contact with her.
"What about her?" Floyd stared back at Gordy a bit grim then.
"I dunno. I thought that was special." Gordy didn't know what else to say.
"So did I." Floyd shrugged. "But she met this foreign dude she was trying to help at the Uni, and I guess he must have rocked her world. Something like that."
"I see," Gordy nodded.
"Yeah, well, can't say that I blame her." Floyd sighed.
"So you've been there for Serena though," Gordy nodded, not sure what he meant by that. It was a mystery to him if he was more than just a brother of some sort to her.
"Yeah, well, she's been there for me," Floyd smiled. "Hate to say it, but possibly she's been there more for me than I've been there for her, in the long run."
Gordy felt a bit sad wishing Floyd would just say it. Could he just admit it?
"So you love her?"
Floyd just nodded.
Gordy wished he could say something else, but he couldn't. It was one of those things he just had to let rest. For good.
