Karen hadn’t said anything to her folks about leaving. While she liked to think highly of them, her intuition told her it was just a bad idea. She didn’t want to start trouble. So instead, she wrote them a short letter. Explaining what was going on and stuck it on the fridge with a magnet. Making sure to emphasize that she’ll be back as much as she could to see them.
After that was said and done, she grabbed the back she packed with all her clothes (which wasn’t much) and went to wait outside in the yard for Kevin’s truck. She was pretty dang excited to see her brother again— It’d been a while. He got sick, well that was Kenny’s words, so he had to leave for a bit. Though she never forgot about him.
The brunet her a few clunky sounds coming from a distance, so she leaned forward to look down the road. Karen waved a hand high in the air excitedly at the familiar truck just to make sure he actually saw her.
"We could get some spider traps it somethin if you really wanna get rid of em," Kenny suggested. He got up from the couch and stretched, then grabbed the crackers to take to the kitchen and put away.
"You think this looks okay?" As he walked back into the living room, the blond looked down at his outfit. It didn’t take long for him to just shrug it off and find his flip flops. "Whaddya think she’ll make?"
"You look fine!" Karen assured him, zipping her hoodie back up and adjusting it at the bottom before making a sort of hop-skipping walk over towards Kenny. "I don’t know. I don’t think she’s ever cooked that much— Dad never buys anything fresh cause it’s expensive."
She reached out to take her big brothers hand, looking over at him and giving him a big toothy smile. “Could you buy me things for lunch at school? Ruby normally shares some of hers with me but I feel bad for always takin’ her food.”
I have a lot of feelings for all the mccormick siblings
I’m okay!! howre you? :)
I’m good!! I just got finished moving into my own apartment and all. How are you? How’s Kevin?
you already asked how i was silly :p
but he’s good! he asked me to come stay with him instead of mom and dad cause he’s gotta job now
mccangel started following you
hey karen! how are you?
I’m okay!! howre you? :)
Seeing how excited Karen was, the was she seemed to glow, reassured Kenny that the sacrifice was worth it. She was far more important than some concert. Or anything else for that matter.
"Mmmmaybe. We’ll see. But if they don’t, we can find some place that does!" the blond chirped. "I can come help ya catch em too, if you want."
"They don’t bite or nothin’ but I still don’t want them crawling on me or anything." Karen shrugged, scooting to the end of the couch so she could grab her old, torn up sneakers and tug them back on her feet.
She wasn’t really sure which she was more excited for— Getting some food in the house, or just getting to spend time with her big brother. Both were pretty great. “I bet mom’s gonna be real excited that she’ll be able to cook somethin’ for once. She’s always yellin’ at dad to get some stuff but he never has any money.”
