EXCERPT

Ordinary World – Laurie Treacy

I relaxed my arms. “This guy had the ‘eyes.’” I squinted mine for emphasis.

Remy stifled a laugh as he smashed the grass lining the sidewalk with his Vans.

I ignored him. “He stared out the porch doors while my Mom rattled off her sales pitch numbers.” I extended each finger on my right hand. “Lot size. Common charges. Taxes. Amenities—”

“Real estate lingo and hocus pocus crud. Excuse me while I nap.”

I threw him a death glare. “He stood by the deck doors, pretend listening. I saw him using those eagle eyes. Counting every tree and bush in the yard.”

“So what?” Remy stepped closer, his dark almond eyes searched my face. “You can’t control who buys a townhouse here. You’re my best friend, but you’re kind of a snob. Don’t start believing the things your aunt says. We both know she’s wacked.”

I inhaled sharply, stung by his words. “Whoa. Harsh.” Tears raced toward the surface. I hung my head, controlling my anger.

“I’m sorry.” He brushed my black bangs back, then dropped his arm away. “The purple tips came out great. I like them.”

He was trying to change the subject and distract me.

I raised my head. Our eyes met.

“You’re scaring me,” he said, lowering his voice even though we were alone. “Reading people, feelings, evil. You’re sounding like her. Ever since Rhea moved in with you guys—people around here talk. They call her a nut, a witch. We live in an ordinary world. Be careful. People can be cruel.”
