5. Chapter 5

We are all eating dinner. Lasagna and broccoli. What kind of combination is that? Mrs. Evans is staring at me. Cut it out you weirdo. Your creeping me out. I don't like lasagna or broccoli. I just shove it around on my plate. 

"That's a beautiful ring." She says looking at my hand and not even glance in my eyes.

"oh thanks."

"who's is it?"

"mine."I say kind of protectively.

"well it had to be someone else's. you certainly could not afford it your self."

my mouth drops to the floor! I can't believe she just said that! It true, but still.


"I'm sorry, Ashley." She says it angrily.

she wipes her mouth and leaves the table. 

"Sue! Ashley. I'm sorry. Um, uh, time for bed."

i stomp up to Noah's room. I pull out the picture of my mom. I stare at it. My dad is holding hands with someone else. A little kid. I see a swatch of the little blue shirt and dark blue and orange shorts. The shorts are Hawaiian pattern maybe. I see his little black Velcro shoes. I pull the picture out of the frame and turn it over.

"Ashley, mom, dad,..."

of course. I can't see his name. Who is this mysterious new relative?
