January 30th had passed and I still hadn't heard from Rachel. Every time I tried to bring up the subject, she seemed aloof; as if she was avoiding telling me something.
Something she already knew? Something she was afraid to tell me?
Finally, I confronted her.
"So... any news?"
Her eyebrows pulled together. "What?"
I sighed. "You know..." I glanced around, making sure no one was going to overhear us. "Your dad? Church budget? Moving, yes or no?"
