Present day . . .
“Got somewhere important to be?” JP asks me from across the plane, his
eyes fixed on my bouncing leg.
“Just eager to get the hell away from you,” I answer, a typical brother
“Cute.” He lets out a deep sigh. “I hate being away from Kelsey, but the
trip to New York was good, right? Setting up our second rent-controlled
building feels good.”
A few months ago, JP approached me and our other brother, Huxley,
about utilizing our fortune for good and offering some rent-controlled
buildings in major cities. The buildings would offer a safe, clean, and fresh
place to live, providing assistance to those who might need it—like daycare
facilities for single parents, financial classes, and access to a market with
wholesale food. The point of the project is to help those who need it the
most. It’s been a successful and rewarding venture.
“It does feel good,” I say as I pull my phone from my pocket while the
plane taxis to the bunker. I open the text thread I have with Lia, and I shoot
her a quick text.
Breaker: Landed. Picking up the goods. You have everything cued up
and ready to go?
My phone buzzes right away with a reply.
Lia: I’ve been ready, just waiting on you.
Breaker: Sorry, poor weather held us up. Be there soon.
“Who are you texting over there?” JP asks, trying to get a look at my
“Lia,” I answer.
“Ahhh,” he announces with realization heavy in his tone. “That’s why
you’re so eager to get off the plane. You want to go spend time with your
“First of all, she’s not my girl, she’s my best friend, and if I have to keep
saying that to you, I’m going to fucking explode. And secondly, she just got
a brand-new glass Yahtzee that we’ve been dying to play.”
“Glass Yahtzee?” JP asks. “That seems like an extremely bad idea. Isn’t
the point of Yahtzee to shake the dice?”
“Yes, but this presents another level of a challenge: shake the dice
without breaking the cup.”
JP stares at me, his face devoid of expression. “You’re going to slice
your hands open. Does this glass Yahtzee come with a warning?”
“Yes, of course. It’s a play-at-your-own-risk situation. And we want to
risk it. Don’t worry, though. Lia has prepared a hard surface with a blanket.
We’re being smart.”
“Being smart would not be playing glass Yahtzee,” he mutters while
shaking his head. “Do not call me when you need stitches.”
“Not like you would answer the phone if I did.”
JP rolls his eyes in a dramatic fashion. “I’m a newlywed, for fuck’s
sake. Sorry if I want to spend every waking moment with my wife.”
“I don’t think you actually are sorry,” I say just as the plane parks and
the flight attendant opens the door and lets down the stairs.
