Re: The Stones
It was impossible not to laugh when Leah said collars were easier to find. It wasn't a big ruin the whole moment laugh but it was for just the briefest of moments like the last few years had been wiped out and they were having a normal Thanksgiving dinner joking and having a good time when Kori laughed. And then the moment was gone and the awkwardness seeped back in as Kori sobered. Embarrassed she stared at her plate.
"Don't worry." She mumbled still not looking up although she'd caught a very brief glimpse of the look Brandon had shot her way out of her peripheral vision. "Sue me for being curious." Kori muttered an edge to her voice. Yes she brought it up but she just wanted to make conversation on something and it was the first thing that had come to mind.
She patted her thigh for the dog to come to her so she could apologize. Scratching him behind the ears as she said, "Sorry about that Cinnamon. I'm just a little tired."
