next to impossible

Katy's cell rang. She avoided the number.

"Why won't you take the call?" Maxie asked getting a basket ready to take to Simon and Josh.

"Its my brother, Warren, all right?" She swelled with a slight scowl.

"And where might he think you be?" Maxie stared back.

"Does it matter?" she was in a mood.

"He thinks you've gone back to school. Aren't you the bad one now?" Maxie just grinned.

"Believe me, the less you have to do with Warren the better. He's horribly protective." She remained uneasy about the subject.

"He'll find you one day. One day, he'll have a reason to come by on this street and then there you are. Plain as day. Then what?" Maxie told her.

"I don't want to talk about it." She scowled more.

"I get it," Maxie sighed. "Now come with me to Si's alright, Frannie said she'd stay with Ste."

"All right," but she didn't look a bit fun in the matter.

"That's just great," Maxie sighed. "No one would believe us now if we told them we were in love. This is not what love looks like." He made a grimace then to show just how upset she looked.

"Fine," she made an effort to smile.

"Try not to think about your brother too much," Maxie told her. "Think of me." He bit a grin.
