A/N: Lucy hasn't met Kevin yet.
Lucy took a deep breath and picked up the phone in her bedroom.
Dialing the familiar number, she held the phone up to her ear.
"Hello" Mary answered.
"Hi, Mary. It's Lucy."
"Hi, Luce. What's up?" Mary questioned.
"Well, I was wondering," here Lucy paused.
"Wondering what? Spit it out, Luce!" Mary told her with a laugh.
"I was wondering, how you would feel about having a roommate?"
"A roommate? What do you mean?" Mary wanted to know.
"I want to move to Buffalo." Lucy stated calmly.
"What! Why?" Mary squealed.
"I just want to live someplace different. And I helped you move in, so I know that I like Buffalo. Plus, we haven't really gotten to spend that much time together since you moved out. I mean, we'll probably get married soon. And then our chance to live together and do sister stuff will be gone." Lucy told her.
"Luce, you're not even dating anyone right now" Mary said with a laugh.
"Well, you are. You're dating Ben" Lucy retorted.
"Have you told mom and dad about you moving yet?" Mary asked her.
"No. I wanted to see if you would go for it first," Lucy answered.
Mary took a deep breath and thought about it for a second.
"Okay. I think that would be good. You can pay half the rent and everything."
"Oh, thanks!" Lucy retorted sarcastically.
Mary laughed. "I didn't mean it that way."
"Ok. I better go talk to mom and dad then. I'll let you know when I'm coming." Lucy told her before hanging up.
A few minutes later, Lucy had gotten Eric and Annie to come to Eric's study.
"Are you okay?" Annie immediately asked her.
"I'm fine, mom" Lucy said.
"So, what is it?" Eric asked her.
"I want to move to Buffalo with Mary." Lucy said.
Annie sucked in her breath. "Why, Lucy?"
Eric just looked at her and waited for her explanation.
"I just want to live somewhere different. I want to stretch my wings, I guess. And I want to spend more time with Mary" Lucy told them.
Eric nodded in understanding. "But what about school?"
"I can take classes online, or find another college there and transfer. Although, I think that I'd prefer to just take classes online." Lucy answered.
"It's fine with me, as long as your mother agrees" Eric told her calmly.
Annie sighed, but managed to smile too. "Alright, Luce. If that's what you want."
"It is" Lucy assured them, before going upstairs to start packing and call Mary.
A week later, Lucy stood in the airport terminal and said goodbye to her family.
Finally, after about a hundred goodbye hugs all around, she picked up her suitcases and headed for the gate.
"Bye, everyone!" Lucy called over her shoulder and then hurried down the hallway toward her flight.
Smiling, she handed her boarding pass to the woman at the gate and headed toward the plane.
After settling into her seat, Lucy tucked her bag away and leaned back. Staring out the window, she smiled and said, "Buffalo, here I come!"
