just a phone call away

"She was so upset," Caitlin said to Alex when he called the house phone. It seemed things were not all right in the Big Apple with Megan and Derrick.

"Is he all right?" Alex asked, glad they were in Texas where it was nice and warm even if everyone here seemed to be complaining about the cold. He'd been wearing shorts since he got here.

"He's OK. Not that I've talked to him." She told Alex they weren't that close.

"How is everything going?" Alex hoped Caitlin was on the mend with Sammi and Smed too. They couldn't be housemates without bumping into each other. Hopefully, things were better for her now. It seemed that way. He knew Gavin really cared about her.

"Did you hear from Hattie?" Caitlin asked.

"I don't think I have the right cell phone number, for her. That's why I called the house phone." He was walking across campus with backpack in tow, hoping he made it home before Logan called him.

"Yeah, I think she's getting on some family plan with Timo and Gavin family." Caitlin told him she'd make sure he got her number. She went to find her cell.

"Well, that was nice of them." Alex guessed it was true. "So she is going to have a baby?" He never knew how to say that. Did he say pregnant?

"Right. I'm sure she'll want to tell you." Caitlin sounded as if she didn't want to steal Hattie's thunder. She found Hattie's new phone number.

"Just a minute." He had to find a pen in the pocket of his lose plaid shirt, and write the number on his hand. He was not as organized as Logan thought he was.
