Ryan knocked on Brody’s door, bursting to tell him about the tour. Word had gotten around, and she’d gotten congratulatory calls from Annette and others, but it wasn’t quite the same. She was about to knock again when he opened the door. “Hey, come on in.” Brody held the door open for her. “Thanks.” Ryan’s excitement dropped a few notches. Brody looked and sounded far different than he had on the phone earlier. “You okay?” “Sure. What’s up?” He closed the door. “I, um, I have news.” “Yeah? Good news?” “Yeah. We got picked up for the tour.” She couldn’t stop a grin. “Hey, that’s great.” Ryan was taken back at his muted reaction. “It is. Ah, Lara called today and told me. We’re all pretty excited. I’ll be anxious and all in a few days, but for now it’s kind of wild.” Her own enthusiasm was down considerably. He nodded. “That’s fantastic.” “Thanks.” Ryan felt deflated; she could see he was preoccupied and his smile looked forced. “So, how was your day?” “Okay. Just recovering from the trip.” “You did sound tired when I talked to you earlier.” He shrugged. “It’s the downside of all the travel. Sometimes your internal clock just gets all messed up and it takes a little bit to reset it. I’ll be good tomorrow.” “That’s good.” Ryan blanked on what to say next. Brody sounded so flat, unlike himself. “You up for some food?” Brody didn’t hassle her on her eating, another wrong note. “Sure. And, maybe a movie or something?” “Yeah, maybe. How does Indian food sound?” “Like something new and different. I’ve never had it before.” “How’d you manage that? There are tons of Indian restaurants around here.” She shrugged. “I don’t know, bursa escort just never came up I guess. My parents think ethnic food begins and ends at Chinese. With the band, we tend to do that or Thai or pizza.” “Want me to help you pick from the menu, then? Some Indian stuff can be pretty spicy.” “Sounds good.” They sat on the couch and went over the menu. After Brody placed the order, Ryan reached over and put a hand on his arm. “Are you okay?” “Hmmm?” “It looks like something’s on your mind. Is anything wrong? Do you want me to go?” “No, no. I’m sorry. I just—I got some bad news after I talked to you before.” “What happened?” “My brother called. He and his wife have decided to separate. It’s just a huge shock. I mean, Rick and Amy.” Brody slumped back onto the cushions. “I can’t believe it.” “Oh, wow. I’m really sorry.” “Yeah, me too. Rick said they were keeping it low-key, and they’re going to see a counselor, but he’s moving out.” “Do you think they might get back together later?” “I don’t know. I mean, I hope so.” Ryan didn’t know what to say; she felt as though everything was off-kilter. Brody was the one who knew what to say, who always had a joke to cheer her up. She didn’t think she’d ever seen as upset as he was now. “It’s just so hard to believe.” Brody was incredulous. “They seemed to have it all and be handling everything really well. I mean, I know it can’t be easy with both parents working; it wasn’t easy for my parents. But they did it, so I guess I figured Rick and Amy would, too.” “They still might, though.” Brody shook his head. “I don’t think so. Rick sounded like he thought it bursa escort bayan was over. I keep thinking how Bax has his family in Boston, but they seem okay. If Bax and his wife can keep it together, with all the traveling and separation, how come Rick can’t, when he doesn’t have to do any of that?” “It’s tough, but everybody’s different.” Ryan thought for a minute. She’d talked with Bax a few times when she’d met Brody and his teammates after games and he seemed like a good guy. “Bax is older and has a different perspective on it. Maybe your brother and his wife just need to get some perspective.” “Maybe.” Brody didn’t sound convinced. The food came and Brody suggested she try the chicken biryani. “It’s probably not as spicy as what I ordered,” he told her. “Might be good to start slow.” Ryan nodded and took a bite. It was good, but it was hot. “Water, please,” she said as she gulped air. Brody gave her a small smile and handed her a piece of naan bread instead. “Here, try this. And take some of this for the rest of it.” He gave her a small container. She ate the bread, then took a deep breath and chanced a drink of water. “Okay, better. What’s in that?” “Plain yogurt. It’ll help cut the heat like sour cream does with Mexican food. Water spreads the heat around, so you’re better to drink milk or have something like this.” “Good to know.” She tried another bite, this time with the yogurt. “Yes, much better. Man, if this is spicy, I don’t think I should try what you have.” “Well, there’s plenty of yogurt if you get adventurous.” “I think I’ve had enough adventure for now.” They ate in silence escort bursa for a while. Ryan decided she liked it enough that she might try it again, provided there was an ample supply of naan and yogurt. When they were finished, she helped him sort through the leftovers and clean up. Brody was quiet during the whole process, and Ryan was stumped on what to do. “Look, I can go if you want,” she said. He turned and put a hand on her shoulder. “No, I’d like you to stay. Besides, we haven’t had dessert yet.” She smiled. “That sounds great. But it can be simple. I’m good with cookies.” “Please. Like I’d give my girlfriend mere cookies.” He scoffed and sent her into the living room. A few minutes later he came out with two bowls and handed her one. “See, it’s cookies and ice cream.” “My favorite.” “Nothing but the best. Here, a toast to Imaginary Grace and the tour.” They clinked their spoons together. “I really am happy for you, Ryan, and the others. I’m sorry if it seems like I’m not; I’m just not great company right now. “That’s okay.” Brody found a movie and they watched as they ate. Ryan couldn’t concentrate on the movie. She wondered if she should bring up meeting her parents, or if she should wait. The problem with waiting was that she knew if she didn’t do it now, she’d continue putting it off and then the waiting would become as bad or worse than the actual event. She ate the last of her cookie and glanced at Brody. He was staring at the television but she could tell he wasn’t seeing it. It was too bad about his brother, she thought. She remembered when Lara’s parents had divorced, and it had been pretty ugly, with Lara in the middle. She hoped that Brody’s nephews made out okay; she didn’t know if it was better or worse that they were younger than Lara had been. Once more she debated asking Brody about meeting her parents. It’s not like he has to go tonight, she thought.
