Aiden

For weeks, I've been hearing about Olivia's new boyfriend, Aiden. That means Tai's out. She met Aiden at preschool. I guess they have a lot more in common.

When I drop her off in the morning, I ask if he's there. She always says no. I was getting curious after all this time, so one morning I lingered on the topic. "Are you sure he's not here?"

"No."

"All the other kids are here. Are you just embarassed to introduce me to your friends?" I asked.

"Yes," she answered.

By this time we had arrived in the class, and she went to put her stuff away in her cubby. That's when I realized that all the kids have their photos by their names, so I decided to hunt for Aiden's photo. I was hoping she has good taste.

Thankfully, she does. He is a cute hapa boy with dark hair and big brown eyes. His hair was neatly combed back for a Sears-type portrait, so he has parents who care.

Later that day, I reported all this to Claus, who laughed at me. "You're spying on her? If this is what it's like now, what's going to happen when she's 13?"
