"Well, I don't know why you didn't call me when you decided to go to the furniture mart," Emily said so coldly as she looked at the leather couch set that Bella picked out for her livingroom. "Were you out of your mind?"
"You," Bella was building up some momentum in her voice as if she was ready for a fight with her sister. "You just don't get it." Bella gave her the evil stare.
"God, its always got to be about you, doesn't it!" Emily so wish they had boxing gloves. She'd show her sister a thing or two.
"Ladies, now ladies, lets try to be ladies, why don't we?" Fish stepped in with a smile, holding Gib all the while. "Its just furniture."
"Yeah, and its real comfy too." Archie set back on the couch, smoothed a place just for Emily. "Why don't you try it, Em?"
Emily was in a huff. It was just a few days before the wedding. Emily sat down hugging herself. The sofa wasn't quite as miserable as it looked.
"You know about Mom, don't you?" Bella took Gib then so he could sit her lap while he took a bottle.
"Well, I live with her, don't I?" Emily was back to glaring then.
"Then you know she's gonna have Parker's baby."
"Parker's baby?" Emily squinted hard.
"Get out of here!" Archie set up on his side of the couch then. "Are you serious? That's amazing!"
Emily just looked at him as if he was out of his mind.
"I can't believe you didn't know," Bella smirked.
"Its not like she tells me everything," Emily sighed. "I knew she was sick."
"Maybe you should ask her if she and Parker would want to join you two in the wedding." Bella suggested.
Archie's face said it all. As if he wished he'd thought it himself.
"Yeah!" He was happy with his big goofy grin.
Emily gave her sister a disgusting look. No way, she thought. No way.
