"Tell me something I don't know, Tess. Marriage not what you thought it would be?"
"It's not that......I'm cheating on Elvin with a 20 something year old college guy."
"Are you insane? He's a baby! He's about the same age as Kenny, Tess!" Tabitha exclaimed.
"Yea, I know.......it's just......"
"Just what, Tess? How can you be all jazzed up to marry this guy and then regret it months later? You haven't even been married that long!"
"I know Tabitha.......I just don't understand what happened....."
"He wants kids. He wants to have a baby. With me. I don't know anything about raising kids!"
"I know you don't. But you can learn. You made a commitment Tess. For once, you need to honor it," Tabitha said.
"I know.....I just don't remember much up until the wedding.....it's so weird....I remember walking back to the house, feeling like I was coming out of some kind of fog....I know it sounds crazy, but I just don't think I was myself that day.....I've never even had a serious boyfriend and now I'm married," Tess said.
As Tabitha looked into the face of her little sister, a grown woman with a Peter Pan complex, she felt the burden of all the years she had spent getting Tess out of her jams.......no matter how heavy the burden, she just couldn't turn her back on Tess.......
"I love you too. You made this bed, now you gotta lie in it. Just do the best that can, be the best that you can. That's all you can really do," Tabitha said.
And Tabitha believed she would.....but her best was other people's worst sometimes........
* Title is this song by Anna Nalick
* Tabitha needs to get a life! She hasn't had many wants for her immediate family lately.....Tessa is going to have to fix this mess with Elvin all on her own......nothing much Tabitha can do!
* The twins are like polar opposites of each other, but thankfully they still get along quite well :)
