I didn’t know what to say, so I sat there and said nothing. Sky looked blank and distant. She didn’t move, just stood there with her back to the still open door. I didn’t move, just stayed leaning against the wall of her hallway.
“Do you know how to roll up?” She asked as she finally broke the silence. I shook my head yes. “You any good?”
“I never rolled a wrap before, but I’m sure it isn’t that different.”
Sky said never mind, as she passed me in the hallway in route to her room. I wanted to follow her, but she shut the door before I even turned around. I walked to the door just as a little hood rat poked his head in. I held my hand to his chest as he tried to force his way through the door.
“Sky, you all right” He yelled at the top of his voice.
“She’s fine. Just went to get her head straight. Can I help you with something?”
“Naw. Tell her to hit up Lob when she gets the chance.” He started walking away before he even finished his sentence. I’m beginning to understand where Sky gets cutting people off before they finish speaking. I closed the door and latched every lock lining the door frame. When I finished, I heard Sky’s bedroom door open. She stuck her head out and looked around.
“Was that Lob?”
“Good” she said as she went into the room Sean came out earlier. She closed the door behind her.
