When her brother, Tom called her she asked him what was wrong.
"Why do you think something's wrong?" he asked.
"Because you never call me... I call you, but you're always too busy for your big sister."
"I'm calling to say I'll be back next weekend. I'm staying with Alex," he said.
"So you're actually going to this party on the beach?" she asked.
"Yes and you should too if you want to meet Avery," he said.
"The girl that I've been seeing," Tom said.
"You're bringing a girl home with you!" she exclaimed and asked, "How long have you been seeing her?"
"Only a few weeks, but they've been the best weeks of my life. So do you want to come and meet her?"
"Okay, we'll come. Does Mom know about your friend," she asked.
"No. I think we'll do the whole meet the parents thing later, not this soon," he said.
"Lil Tommy has a girl. Now if Alex could find one and settle down," she said.
"Don't worry about Alex the right girl is out there for him," Tom assured her.
After their conversation ended she called Alex. "Did you know Tommy has a girlfriend?"
"Hi Kate!" he said, "and yes, I know about Avery."
"Why didn't you tell me?" she yelled.
"Because I didn't realize I needed to tell you." He sounded annoyed and she couldn't understand why.
"Do you know anything about her?" she asked.
"I know that she has a good job in New York."
"How did they meet?" she asked.
"At a bar and the rest is history," he said. "I have a picture, but you can't see their faces. I'll send it to you and I can probably get a hold of a better picture for you."
"I guess I'll have to come to your party to meet her," she said. She instantly regretted making the decision and felt like her brothers were ganging up on her.
"You'll have fun. You'll love Megan and actually Kristi too. You are both a lot alike."
"How do you mean?" she asked.
"You both like to have your noses in other people's business," he said.
"I'm going to tell all your friends your business," she teased.
"Like what? You wouldn't!"
"I'll tell them you're still in love with your high school girlfriend," she said.
"I am not. I'm over her. I swear!" he exclaimed.
"I'll believe that the day you fall in love for real," she said. She waited for him to say something, but to her, his silence proved that she was right. Instead he told her that he was supposed to be working and hung up.
He texted a picture of Tom making out with his girlfriend. She was curious who took the picture and why Alex had it. Her brothers were just not normal.
She was stuck going to this party. It wasn't that she didn't like the beach, because she did. She just wasn't sure about meeting a ton of new people. She had a new baby and there was no way she was wearing a bathing suit. This New York Avery was probably as thin like a model. Kate had always been blessed with curves that seemed more pronounced since her pregnancy. Matt told her that she was perfect so that was what mattered.
