"Oh my God." Logan couldn't help but eyeball Noel when he told him the news. "You're excited! Right!" He was, but he wasn't so sure about Noel.
"Yeah. Kind of." He cleared his throat. He'd met up with Logan for lunch at the coffee shop. "I mean, I want to be. Its just..I'm really scared."
"Why?" Logan didn't get it. He was going to be an uncle. He walked along with his brother in the chill of the Autumn air. It was really fall now. Halloween was right around the corner.
"Oh, I dunno. How am I suppose to pay for all this? My hours got cut at the gym. I have no idea if we can even raise a kid in a studio apartment. And..and I've never been in anything..quite like this." Noel shrugged.
"Well, you can't upset, Randi. You can't. She's having your baby." Logan winced as if Noel better get happy and see this through.
"I have student teaching, I didn't even want to teach." Noel seemed upset about that. "Did you know she's only 18?" Noel look startled about that. "I'll be twenty-eight next month."
"So." Logan didn't get the age difference.
"I should really be farther along in my life." Noel acted as if this were some sort of 3-alarm fire.
"Yeah, well.." Logan shrugged trying to think of something that might make Noel feel better about the situation. "How about you guys move into the house?"
Noel rolled his eyes at that.
"I'm serious. We want to help. It wouldn't be that bad." Logan promised.
Noel nodded. They ordered their favorite chili dogs then, but Noel couldn't eat. Logan had a feeling his brother was going through morning sickness too, except it was in the afternoon.
