[three] backstory – the big news; Philadelphia; WdW, PC WHO: Whitney de Winter [YOUNGEST DAUGHTER], Phillip Cordon [PUSS IN BOOTS] WHERE: Phillip's house, Philadelphia WHEN: Friday, June 10, 2005; evening [backstory!] WHAT: Whitney has some life-changing news to impart. RATING: PG-13 at least. STATUS: thread; in-progress
Even now, nearly a week after being told what was going on with her, Whitney still wanted to deny it and, in the face of being unable to do so, still wanted to avoid telling Phillip as long as possible in order to pretend it wasn't happening. This wasn't in her plans for her life – granted, very little of her life was planned one moment to the next, even now that she had started to ground herself with the friendships and 'familial' relationships formed among the Incarnates. Still, there were certain consistent factors in the inconsistency and this? Was not any part of that.
Exiting the car, her own tonight and not a driver, she walked to the front door of Phillip's house outside the city, took a breath and knocked. Other than necessary business transactions, she and Phillip hadn't spoken since the last time they'd broken it off due to the same reasons as always, as far as Whitney could see it – they just didn't mesh.
When he opened the door, she offered him a weak smile. "Hi."
