I ran to Bruno as soon as I saw him. Nick was in the bathroom taking a shower. I put arms around Bruno's neck and wrapped my legs around his waist. Bruno was strong and well built.
"Hey, Mel," he said kissing my cheek.
"It's been a while since you called, you ass-hole!" I said jokingly.
Bruno smiled and put me down.
"Sorry," he said.
Bruno and I talked for a while until Nick came downstairs. I ran to him and hugged him. He kissed my forehead. When my Mom came home from work, she dropped her grocery bag in the kitchen and gave the boys a big hug. My dad would come late. Finally, my sister came home. And everyone, except my dad, was here.
"I have to tell you guys something," he said.
"Go on Bruno," said my mother.
"Okay... well... first.... don't yell..."
"Yes, Bruno, what happened?"
My mother looked nervous.
"I found the perfect girl."
Bruno had thousands of girlfriends and he said that about every one.
"Yeah right," said Samantha.
"I did. And....I...."
"He proposed," said Nick trying to make things go faster.
"What!?" Samantha screamed. I just sat there, curled in my seat. Samantha had to speak her mind.
"Honey," said my mother, "are you sure about this?"
"Mom, you're going along with this?" asked Samantha.
"Well, maybe. Bruno's old enough, I think."
Samantha stomped upstairs and to her room. Drama queen. I don't know why she was overreacting.
My mom called my dad, who said he would come in an hour.
"Bruno," she said, "can we meet this girl?"
"Oh, sure. She's waiting... well, in my room."
"Well, I brought her home."
"Bruno, she's not a toy that you can bring home just like that."
"I didn't do it just like that. We called her parents and all, met them at the college. She's from Oklahoma. They were physched. And we planned everything."
"Well, bring her down."
Bruno went upstairs and came down with a beautiful girl. She had warm straight light brown hair that fell beneath her chest. She was slim, but not too slim. She wore a green t-shirt with a scarf over skinny-leg jeans. She had long pale arms and green eyes. She looked like a fairy.
"Wow," my mother said, "she's beautiful, Bruno."
The girl blushed.
"Hello," she said in a polite sweet voice, "I'm Summer."
Bruno introduced her to everyone. And when my dad came home, he liked her. My sister eventually came down and apoligized and talked to Summer. Everyone liked her. They were going to get married when they graduated, which was like in 2 years.
Great. My brother was going to get married, Amber and Mickey's relationship might end, and Adam was going to ruin everything.
