Can We Get Cake Too?

Max listened to River and smiled. "I'd love to see some of your work sometime if you don't mind." Max was trying his best to try and get River to open up, hoping maybe this would be the way. Whether or not this would backfire or not however...

Chris tilted his head curiously then smiled. "We get to sleep over with you??? Can River come too??? That would be so fun!"

Max frowned but nodded to Serenity with a warm smile. "You're very kind to do that for them. I think it's a smart idea. Keep them away from their father..."

Tam jolted from the sound of someone knocking and looked to see a guy standing there. He seemed familiar yet the town was small she'd probably delivered to him at some point. He seemed cute enough, in that bad boy sort of way. She hastily wiped her tears away and rolled down the window.

Tam shook her head. "Uh... no. No it didn't. I just..." She tried to think of some excuse that wasn't "I broke down crying because I hate my life and my dad's abusive and I'll never escape this place or him." She just stammered for a good two minutes instead before shaking her head. "It's nothing... You're... Well thanks for asking if I was okay... You... Not a lot of people would do that in this day and age..."
