Part two of Chapter one, this is.

“Oo, well, now, you’ve got me excited.” “Okay, yuck,” she says. And I roll my eyes. She continues, “Sacha wants me to put Dylan in Sea’s class. So I’m coming over.” “Oh, no. You coming here. That is bad news.” “Shut up. Smartass. The bad news is . . . is.” She takes a breath—“How about I just tell you when I get there?” “Yeah, sure.” Because I do not like the heaviness in her voice, I say, “So I should definitely put on pants then?” She laughs, “God yes, Pilot.” Just as I buttoned my pants, the door rang. That was quick. Expecting Blake and Dylan, I was altogether surprised to find two people I have never seen before in my life standing before my door.

You don’t get a lot of strangers this far from Downtown Evansdale.
“Hello.” The young woman and young man say, brightly. I say, “Who are you?” “We are—we are. Hi. We are a—” She’s looking at me hard; I don’t hold her stare. “A couple,” the man beside her says, placing a hand at the woman’s back. “Husband and wife, actually. And we have a daughter. Who would very much like to be in ballet classes.” “Right.” I say, wondering if it was just me or if they were acting a little . . . off. “Is this not the right place?” The man says—he sticks out a hand, “My name’s Theo, by the way.” I take his hand—we shake. “Nice to meet you, Theo, but I’m actually not in charge of the ballet academy—that’s my sister, Chelsea. You’ll wanna talk to her.” “So we do have the right place.” Theo nudges the woman beside him, “See? I told you we weren’t lost.” It’s one of those human moments; we all give small laughs. A smile rises on the young woman’s mouth, and she nudges the man back. I smile at them. “Chelsea’s teaching a class right now. You can go in and observe or wait for her.” The young woman quickly nods, stepping forward, but Theo asks, “How long do you think she’ll be?” I shrug, “Classes probably started about half-an-hour ago. They’ll take their first break in about another half hour. Until then—” I step back. The man hesitates, but the young woman strides into my living room without pause. “And your name?” I ask her. And that's it for part two of chapter one.
