A/N: Okay... I know I haven't updated in FOREVER. I hope you can all forgive me! I have been soooo busy, I literally haven't had time. Plus, I had a major writer's block. I want to wrap this story up soon, but I'm not sure how much longer it'll be yet :)
The morning after my date with Ty, Lou starts badgering me about it during breakfast. "So?"
"So, what?" I play dumb.
I roll my eyes as I raise the glass filled with orange juice to my lips. "Nothing," I mutter before I take a sip.
She sighs. "I am going to-"
"Do nothing," I finish for her. "Just leave it alone, Lou."
"No," she heads for the door. "I'm not going to let him keep getting away with this."
"Lou, you're acting like it's a big thing-"
"It is a big thing, Amy!" she exclaims, slamming the door behind her. I groan as I hear her car drive away.
I pull up to Ty's trailer and barge through the door without knocking. "Ty."
He looks up from his position on the floor, fixing something in the cabinet. "Hey Lou. Ever hear of knocking?"
"Yes- I just- um- sorry," I stammer. "What are you doing?"
"Fixing this," he says.
"No, not with that," I walk a little farther into the trailer. "You know what I'm talking about."
"I have no idea why you are in my trailer," he doesn't look at me.
"Why haven't you asked Amy yet?"
He moves to sit up, but bumps his head instead. "I- ow," he rubs his head. "I was going to, okay? Last night. But I forgot the damn ring."
I roll my eyes. "Yeah, okay. But what about the last few months?"
"It's just-" he sighs. "Look, I don't want her to say she's not ready or that she feels like we're rushing into this. I mean, we haven't been together for very long after we broke up-"
"Ty, it's been a year since you broke up. And what, three or four since you got together? And don't even get me started on when you first met. How you beat around the bush for how long?"
"Okay," he says as I crouch down.
"Look, Ty, I know my sister. And I think she's ready for this," I stand up again, and make my way towards the door. "Don't wait forever."
