Hello

Fiction By Damaris Ann // 9/11/2016

"Hello."

"Hello, Jonathan!"

"I know you. You're Damaris."

"Yep! That's me. You're an intern with the NCFIC?"

"Yep!"

"Is your sister here?"

"Yes. She's here with Damon and my parents."

"Cool! I've been wanting to get to know her."

***

"Hello again."

"Hello Jonathan. Tired?"

"Yes, and I seem to have caught a cold..."

"Aww I'm sorry."

"I think I gave it to him last time we visited."

"Haha Susan, just like you to share with your brother."

"Nice, Damaris."

"You're welcome, Jonathan."

*mischievous grin*

***

"Josue!"

"Damaris!"

"Hey! It's good to see you."

"You know who this is, right?"

*holds out hand*

"Peter Ramm?"

"Incorrect."

*does mental facepalm*

"Oh duh. You're Richard Vanderbilt and we met last year. I can't believe I thought you were Peter...I guess I'm more tired than I thought."

*sheepish grin*

*laugh*

"Haha well a lot of people mistake me for Peter so don't feel bad. They say we look a lot alike."

"Ehh...tall with dark hair but that's pretty much as far as the resemblance goes. Anyways, it's nice to see you again!"

"Would you like to sit with us and talk?"

"Sure, Josue; that sounds good!"

***

"Good morning Mrs. Matthews! It was so good to talk with you yesterday evening. Little Marjorie is so cute! When is her birthday again?"

"On the 25th. She'll be one. And then this baby is due in December..."

"Aww well it will be so special for the girls to have a little brother."
