“COME AND GET IT, TINY TERRORS,” I called from the kitchen.
Will appeared, shaking his head. “You know I’m not actually tiny
I clutched at my chest in an overdramatic move. “Don’t remind me.
You’re forever eight in my mind.” But it didn’t change the fact that my little
man was now sixteen years old. He had a driver’s license. And was shaving.
I didn’t even want to think about all of the girls who made googly eyes at
I shook myself out of the downward spiral I was rapidly descending
into. “Where are the girls?”
“I just finished Mia’s braids and she was looking for the right bracelet to
go with her outfit. Ava was packing her backpack. What do you need in
God, my brother was the best kid on the planet. Too good. But no matter
how much I tried to get him to cut loose, it never happened. “Can you pour
some OJ for everyone?”
“You got it.”
While Will got everyone glasses of juice, I slid the rest of the scramble
onto plates. The toaster dinged, shooting up the bread in a little hop. I
quickly buttered the slices. “Girls, the countdown is on.”
“We’re here! We’re here!” Mia huffed. “Look at my braids. Will gave

Mia was into anything brightly colored or that had glitter of some sort.

glitter slip-ons. The pink, polka dot ribbons and a wrist full of bracelets just

an array of jelly bracelets, some beaded ones, but peeking out between the
bangles was a rainbow-colored friendship bracelet.
Two years ago, these fancy bead kits had become all the rage with Mia’s
and Ava’s classmates. They were ridiculously expensive, and we didn’t
have a lot of extra money for that kind of thing. So, as an alternative, I’d
taught the girls how to make simple friendship bracelets with string. They’d
become obsessed, and Mia had made us all matching rainbow bracelets.
Even Will wore one.
I held up my wrist, touching it to Mia’s. “Rainbow power in full effect.”
She beamed at me. “Good.”
Ava appeared in the doorway. “Morning.” Her voice was soft, just like
the rest of her. My girl was the most sensitive of souls. The therapist I’d
taken both Will and her to for the first year I’d had custody of them had told
me that she might always be this way. Growing up in such an unstable
home had made her constantly take the measure of those around her, always
cautious to avoid any volatile situations.
