Although it was raining, as his sister prepared lunch, Arden waited outside on the porch in case a customer or delivery truck came by. Instead, it was Rachel’s car that turned into the driveway. Arden shot across the lawn quicker than she could get out and close the door.

“Rachel, I owe you an apology,” he began. As she looked up at him, wide-eyed, raindrops ran in tiny rivulets over the bright wheals on her face. “I—I—I am so ashamed of h-how I spoke to you yesterday. Everything I said was—was truer of me than of you. I was the one who m-made the m-mistake in the first place, but instead of being grateful for your help, I was rude and unkind. Neh—I was vicious.”

She shook her head, and his hope for reconciliation crumbled until she said, “I forgive you, Arden, but I shouldn’t have made that kind of decision without consulting you and Ivan. I can see now how patronizing my actions were. I’m very sorry.”

“At least you were trying to be helpful. I was trying to be hurtful, because...well, because I felt hurt.” Although the rain was warm on his scalp and back, Arden shivered as he confessed, “I was also envious.”

“Of what?”

“Of Toby.”

“Why would you be envious of someone like him?”

Arden coughed, stalling. “He’s so schmaert and—”

“And so are you! I meant it when I told you you’re one of the smartest people I know.”

“It isn’t just that Toby’s schmaert.” A wet curl stuck to Arden’s forehead, and he pushed it aside. “It’s also th-that he symbolized something I thought I could never have.”

“Such as?”

Arden couldn’t face her. He looked over her shoulder, focusing on the trees in the distance. “M-marriage.”
