“Gross. You had a crush on Mama?” Toran, Ginnie’s twin brother, teased.
“Thanks a lot. I’d forgotten about that.” Buzz grimaced at Uncle Jake and then winked at Toran. “I got over it quick. And remember, I was only seven. But youasked her to marry you.”
“I did notask my mom to marry me!” Toran shook his blond head. “Huh, Dad?”
When Dad coughed into his fist, Ginnie laughed out loud. “You mean it’s true? Finally, an embarrassing little kid story notabout me!”
“It’s nottrue.” Toran waved his hand, pointing from their dad to Ginnie. “Tell them, Dad.”
Dad and Buzz exchanged shrugs and smiles. “Well, Tor. I would, but it istrue.”
Toran crossed his arms, frowning. “How old was I?”
“Three. Your mama thanked you kindly for the offer, but said she couldn’t accept, because she was already married to me.” Dad grinned and squeezed his shoulder. “You didn’t talk to me for the rest of that day.”
Ginnie and Tillie giggled.
Toran shook his head. “It’s not funny.”
“Oh, yes it is!” Ginnie laughed harder and pointed her thumb at her chest. “Now you know how Ifeel—they’re always telling stories about me.”
“Your mama thought it was sweet.” Dad tugged one of Ginnie’s blonde braids. “And being the kind and loving sister you are, you came up with a plan to help him out.”
“What kind of plan?” Ginnie asked suspiciously.
His grin grew wider. “You asked meto marry you, so Toran could marry your mama.”
“No way!” Ginnie objected.
Tillie and Uncle Jake roared with laughter.
