Dying to know what happened to Nina?

thumb_Truth_New2After reading about her in XVI and Truth? Now you can keep up with her diary! From yesterday’s post:

Look at that…

my drool smeared the ink. I only laid my head down for a second and now it’s morning. Layla’s puttering around in the kitchen. I know because the smell of toast and coffee’s curling up the staircase and into my room. I should go down and join her for breakfast. Dad’s been up north for a few days and I know she misses him. I guess I do, too.
They’ve both been so nice to me…

But, how do you relate to a dad when you don’t know what that looks like? Or feels like? I have no frame of reference, no comparison – except maybe Wei and Mr. Jenkins, cause it’s for sure that Sandy and her step-dad… well, yuck. But Wei’s dad was always around… mine was supposed to be dead…

I hear Layla coming up the stairs. I know she won’t knock, she’ll stop outside the door – probably think about knocking – then she’ll sigh. She doesn’t know I can hear her. Do I make her sad? Does she wish I wasn’t here? I don’t have the nerve to ask…

Can’t wait to see what happens next!
