Asia joined Kori and Kaleb for breakfast. Just as she was about to greet them, Kaiden strolled in.
“Good morning, Mr. Sweet Face! Are you sure you’re going to school? You look like you have a hot date!”
He sat, chest puffed up and ego thoroughly stroked and brushed the faux dirt off his shoulders. “Well, you know, mom…when you have it, you have it!”
She laughed uncomfortably, not knowing what to make of her son’s attitude. Where did it come from? Just days ago he was on edge and short with her. She walked on eggshells around him. Now he was so casual…and full of himself.
Jared, however, was not amused. “Uhhh, son? Are you sure your head is gonna fit through the door?”
Kori got up from the table. Asia thought she was going to wash the dishes, but she headed for the door instead. “Where are you going, Kori?”
“I don’t want to be late for school.”
“Ok. Have a great day, my precious lamb.”
