I could not hear, and that wasn’t okay with her
My brother came to my apartment to visit last week. He had moved south when he married his wife. It was where she was born and raised and he didn’t want to take her away from her family. Every so often he would make it north for business, and he always stopped in to see when he did. When I looked outside, I was confused. His business was truck driving. I always had him park his truck in the backyard, but it wasn’t there. I thought he may have rented a car, so I shrugged it off. I asked where he parked the truck and he said he sold it. My eyebrows raised at that one. He said he was tired of driving the truck. It was getting too luxurious, and he wanted to be in an apartment more often. He surprised me when he said he was now an actual heating and A/C corporation, before he got into a fantastic heating and A/C supplier, he wanted to take one last trip north and visit his sister. While he was there, he noticed my boiler wasn’t working well, and provided to look at it for me. I had been planning on calling the heating and A/C supplier, even though I could not afford it. I knew I should have kept my mouth shut, because he was now trying to talk me into moving south with him again. His wife certainly didn’t like me much, and thought I was weird. I could not hear, and that wasn’t okay with her. I thanked him for helping with the boiler, even though I told him I would be lost if I wasn’t in my home. I could see the hurt in his eyes, even though he knew how his wife felt about me.
