âOh, Nicholas, I canât handle more conflict. Camilla is grumbling about going back to Wyoming for the summer. She and Jared are arguing about it. My parents are thinking of selling their homeâI love visiting their home in the Garden Districtâand buying an RV, like the one Jamesâ grandparents own. Aunt Macy constantly bickers with Momma, theyâre like pecking hensâ¦Iâm tired with a capitol T.â
âWhich is why, I want my mother to come to the wedding. If my father is my best manâmaybe thereâs a chance of reconciliation. Heâs been sober for a long timeâ¦but she could be the catalyst for even more change. Itâs a risk I want to take to bring my family together again. You, of all people, understand that.â
Biloxi rose and paced. âDo you understand the explosion that could take place? Your mother materializes out of nowhere, just in time for the wedding Then you want to change who represents you as best man? All so close to the wedding. Itâs a slap in the face for my brother. My mother will be so insulted. Grandmother Elise will be so disappointed.â
âIâll tell them. Iâll shoulder the responsibility for this.â
Throwing up her hands, Biloxi shouted, âYou donât understand. The minute after you tell my mother, Hurricane Deidre will be on the phone calling me to demand to know why I didnât warn her. Iâm damned if I do and damned if I donât. Damn it to hell! Is all of this worth it? I just donât know anymore.â
She stormed upstairs. She didnât want to be a widow before she had the chance to be a bride.
