almost dinner

They could barely squeeze around the table now. Todd remembered finding that long oval table with Spencer. They'd sanded it and painted it black, just to have Spencer complain it was too big. He said they'd never have a dinner party, but now there were more than enough to have a dinner party.

Lucy was with the baby. She was off in Sarah and Ezra's room. Cory straggled in, as if he wanted to be there for Spencer too. Then Gage's guests arrived.

"Who is that?" Todd asked Sage who was deep in meat balls and spaghetti. She took a look in the livingroom.

"Some people from work." She went back to the stove while he searched the fridge for some salad dressings.

"Aren't you dating one of them?" Todd remembered Declan from the Halloween party. She shook her head, no.

"Sorry, I didn't know..you two..broke up." He went to toss the salad. Next thing he noticed, Gage was teasing Sage with a kiss on the back of her neck.

"Declan and River wanted to come." He told her, but she kept busy with the food. So now Todd knew who River was. He was quite the looker. Blond. Possibly a natural Adonis. He hoped Lucy didn't notice him.

I feel bad for Todd that he has to worry about Lucy, like that. He really is good to her, but I can see why he has his doubts.

Definitely shows something about their relationship - Todd worrying like that. :/

Hopefully, Lucy isn't going to be obsessed with him. I like Todd and how he's considerate of Sage, too.
