Tim left for Hawaii yesterday and he promised he would facetime me as soon as he got there.
"Jayne Brooklyn!" Wayne yelled.
"Wayne Kyle!" I yelled back using his middle name.
"Get over here!" He yelled back.
I got out of my bed and waltzed over to his room.
"What do you want?" I asked.
"We really need to talk." Wayne said.
"About?" I said, raising an eyebrow.
"Abs." Wayne sighed.
"Oh," I choked out. "So you found out."
"Sure as hell I did!" He frowned. "Why didn't you tell me?"
"Well, I didn't know if that was the problem. I didn't want you to worry."
"She's my sister. My twin sister. You should've fucking told me."
"I know. There's no reason good enough to really explain why I didn't tell you. Wayne, you and I just got over..... depression and I didn't want Abs to go through what we went through."
"I forgive you."
"Great, awesome, but now, what do we do?"
"We help her. Like pain killers."
"Wayne..." My eyes teared up as I remembered my experiences with depression. "I can't be that. I'm not that good. I can't help her like she's helped me all these years."
I blinked back the tears.
"You are going to help her." Wayne looked straight into my eyes. "No matter what it takes."
Later that night, Tim facetimed me.
"Hey baby." He smiled. That smile, I love it.
"Hey." I smiled back. "Seen any brunettes?"
"Yeah, but none that looked my way."
"Ha. That's good."
"How are you holding up without me?"
"Um, I'm doing good. Everybody's good."
"Are you enjoying yourself?"
"Yeah, Hawaii's the best place ever."
"Lots of Flora and Fauna. Like, there are also girls named Flora and Fauna."
"Babe, you're the best girl I could find. Why would I go looking for something better when there's nothing better?"
"You're such a poet, but Hawaii truly sounds better than Nevada."
"But Nevada's the best!"
"I love you."
"I love you too." I blew him a kiss.
"I gotta go babe. But keep in contact, okay?" Tim blew a kiss back.
"Okay. Love you." I said, and we ended the facetime.
I just hope no tan, brunettes look his way.
