Kelly's brother showed up one day wearing a pair of comfortable jeans and a dress shirt. "Jason?" She blinked, unable to move. She had not seen her baby brother since the fiasco at his birthday party, back when Carolyn was still just her roommate. They had been close as children, but they drifted apart as they grew up. High school had been the start, then Kelly’s time away at college had just reinforced things, though the final wedge must have been her parents’ unofficial disownment.
He looked at her sheepishly. "Hey big sis, can I come in?"
"Do Mother and Father know where you are?" She blurted, a worried frown overcoming the look of shock.
"No, but that doesn't matter." A tentative grin. "Can I come in?"
"Oh, sure." She backed up. That was weird, Jason usually did what their parents wanted. "Take off your shoes and I'll go make some coffee for you. You drink coffee, not tea right?"
"Um, yeah." He shut the door behind him and did as she suggested before following her into the kitchen. "This is... cozy." He looked around, eyes wide. Intellectually, he knew that his sister hasn't had contact with their parents for a long time, but seeing the financial differences between households was an entirely different matter. The house was small, and full of trinkets and plants that flourished under Kelly’s care. Big windows only added to the warm atmosphere.
"It's a lot easier to take care of than our parents' house." She shrugged. "What's going on Jason?"
"Well, I uh... I'm uh...."
"Oi Kelly," Carolyn called sleepily, stepping into the kitchen wearing nothing other than a large shirt that barely covered her upper thighs. "Where did you fling my bra last night- umm... there's someone there, isn't there?" She broke off abruptly, awareness sharpening as she smelled a man's cologne.
"Hi, Miss. McKay?" Jason said, wide-eyed. Unable to help himself, he looked over the woman's body, a warm flush spreading over his cheeks and down his body. His sister groaned and smacked him lightly. "What was that for?"
"Imagining my woman naked - more naked." Kelly amended.
"I thought she was straight!" He squeaked, looking at the two women in turn.
"Things change." Carolyn shrugged, knowing the truth of those words first-hand.
"But- but- but-" The man spluttered, looking at his sister as if he had never seen her before. "Why do you always get the beautiful women? I'm the one with a penis!"
Kelly just blinked at him. "What does it matter if you have a penis?" She asked curiously.
"I'm gonna go put on pants." Carolyn muttered.
"You don't have to." They said at the same time, then looked at each other in amazement.
"Aw hell, this is going to be lovely." The blind woman noted.
