Elexis says, her eyes lighting up with the beginnings of a plan. Autumn enters the room and sits on the bed. Elexis sits down next to her, telling Autumn that she needs to talk to her. She gently tells Autumn that she has to move out because her husband is cheating on her. It is hard, but it’s not Autumn’s fault, Elexis says. She knows, she just…wish it didn’t have to be this way, Autumn says, looking away. She wishes the same thing, but this is the choice Autumn’s father made, so she has to go, Elexis says. She can’t believe he is such an IDIOT, Autumn says angrily. It’s just…she’s always thought of Elexis as her real mom, and she’s doesn’t want her to go, Autumn says. Elexis agrees that she doesn’t want to leave either. ‘You know, you COULD come and live with me if you want,’ Elexis suggests pointedly. Autumn laughs. Her dad would REALLY be pissed then, Autumn says.
