Torie nodded, slipping her hand into Ryan's. "Dad wanted me closer to family since he was getting transferred to somewhere in Asia." She shrugged.

"I play polo and football." Alex said.
"He means soccer. And by play, he means stumble, fumble, and any other word beside play." She laughed, "But he does try."
Alex smiled. "Yes, I do try but I am great at school work."
"Yes, in fact, Alex has helped me numerous times with math and science." Torie added, trying to keep the conversation going.
Alex looked at Ryan again. The boy would make a great stable hand or possibly a butler. Hmmm but not a cook. I wouldn't trust him near my food. Look at her, holding hands with filth. Such a shame. He shook his head.
Being single doesn't make you weak, it means that you are strong enough to be on your own; Being alone could be a good thing, because there is no drama involved in your life, no pain, and free to do what ever you want. Life is too short to be chasing those who aren't even worth fighting for, you are worth more than that.
