Now all he had to do was unpack his personal stuff. He was doing just that when Levi came in with a box in his hand. Lucas didn’t pay any attention to him as he hung his clothes up until Levi said, “Please explain to me why you brought Fallon Parker’s stuff with us to Nashville?”
Lucas turned quickly, seeing the blue box that he could have sworn he had grabbed was in his best friends hands.
He walked over to Levi, took the box from him, and placed it at the bottom of his closet.
“I’m waiting,” Levi said. Lucas rolled his eyes.
“What was I supposed to do with it? Leave it in California?” Lucas asked with a shrug of his shoulders.
“Yes! Or hell, here’s an idea, throw it away!”
Lucas ignored him as he went back to hanging his clothes up. “I just don’t understand it. It’s been a billion years since she left. You haven’t seen her or talked to her. Why keep her things when we both know it still bothers you,” Levi asked.
“Nothing in that box bothers me, it’s just memories.”
“Memories you need to throw away. There is no reason why you still have all the clothes she left, or her hair supplies, or…”
Lucas glared over at Levi. “You went through the box?”
“Yeah, like five years ago. Come on, dude. It’s crazy! Why do you need her hairbrush?”
“Why does it matter?”
“Because it’s weird and I think you need help.”
Lucas rolled his eyes as he went back to hanging up his clothes. “I’m fine, I just like having them.”
“Because I do, don’t worry about it. Don’t you have something to do?”
Levi laughed as he shook his head. “Jeez Luc, still sensitive after seven years? Maybe you do need help.”
