“Can’t we just compromise on this?”
Corrin smiled at Silas. “I grew up in the middle of a big brother and little sister, both as bullheaded as the other. I would have gotten walked right over if I started compromising. So, I never quite learned the art.”
Silas couldn’t help but laugh. He was the oldest, with two younger sisters, but he’d been starting school when the first was born. He loved both of them but they’d never been particularly close. Not like Corrin was with her family. Of course, he’d never met most of them since he’d turned down all her invitations to any of the gatherings.
He just didn’t know if he’d be comfortable around all of them, or how comfortable they’d be with him. No matter how many times she told him how accepting they were.
“Seriously, though, Corrin, there has to be some middle ground we can find here.”
“I’m not really sure there is. You’re just going to have to deal with it,” she said, grinning across the table at him.
He blew out a breath. No wonder Jeremiah was crazy about her. Even when she was arguing with you, there was something magnetic about her. Even he didn’t seem to be immune to it.
It’s Day 23 of Just Jot It January and today’s prompt was “compromise”. I really do love writing these two. Can’t wait until I get to the full story.
