“Mom,” I complain, Clove is standing by my side, she has a slight smile on her face. “Embarrassing…”
“I haven’t seen you for weeks and you’re complaining that I’m embarrassing you in front of your ‘girlfriend?’” My mother demands.
“First of all, mom, I’m a 16 year old boy, so yeah, I’m embarrassed and second of all don’t say ‘girlfriend’ Clove is my real girlfriend.”
“We’ll see how long that lasts,” my mother mutters.
“It’s true,” she has no shame in her voice; I grip Clove’s hand in my own, showing her that it wasn’t at all true.
Clove puts out her hand, for my mother to shake, but she ignores it. “I told you to kill her first in the Arena, and what do you do? Fall in love.”
“Mom!” she has no filter, none at all.
“CATO!” Solis comes running down the stairs in our house. “I missed you!”
I pick Solis up and spin him around in the air, he laughs in delight.
Clove is smiling when I put Solis down.
