జ Author Kristan Higgins ᙼ Text ̓ Good Luck with That free download ᣐ Georgia Tickle.Tag.Tank.Tatiana said Tatiana, and I smiled at her.We were doing letter and sound recognition, a component of the language and literacy part of nursery school.Right now, we were trying to get every kid to name a word that started with T without any other chatter, which would reinforce their focusing skills as well as literacy So far, our record was five words in a row, which was pretty good, given that everyone here was only four and had the attention span of a gnat.Theater, said Silvi.Lissie, my assistant teacher, shot me a glance Silvi was advanced, already reading I felt a flash of pride for Clara, followed by the increasingly familiar buzz of nerves whenever anything related to Rafael entered my consciousness For nearly five years, Id done a damn good job of keeping him out of my head.Turd, said Geronimo, and the kids dissolved into giggles.He said turd He said turd Turd they shrieked Axel got up and ran in a circle, a victory lap of sorts Khaleesi started to cry, since she hated all things bowel related, and Lissie comforted her.We got up to six T words Thats a new record, so good work, I said And, Geronimo, youre very funny, but lets keep bathroom talk for bathrooms and when you have to go, okay, sweetheart I glanced at the clock Great job, everyone And look at the clock Its time to clean up.Clean up, clean up, everybody clean up, the kids sang We had a song for everything.I directed the kidsKhaleesi and Cash could put the stuffed animals away, Silvi and Wren could bring the paintbrushes to the sink, Dash and Roland would put pink reminder slips in everyones cubby about bringing in special cuddle friends on Friday Nash and Primrose reshelved books I helped kids find their lunch boxes, gave out hugs, checked to see if paintings were dry enough to be taken home.Then, at 2 00 on the dot, Lissie opened the door to let the parents in to get their kids Donna, the teacher in room 2, let her kids out early every day she was one year away from retirement and really over teaching The hallway was mobbed with kids and parents, and for a second, I didnt see him.Then Silvi shouted, Uncle Rafe and he knelt down, opening his arms as she ran to him.My body reacted before my brainknees softened, my left leg wobbling, the instant heat in my stomach rising through my chest and neck into my face, my hands buzzing with adrenaline.He was here.Clara had put him on the authorized pickup list Id known this day was coming, but now that it was upon me, I couldnt seem to to what was the question again Rafe picked up his niece, kissed her on the cheek Hello, sweet girl, he said, smiling.Then he looked at me, and his eyes I couldnt believe Id gone so long without seeing those eyes, so dark and beautiful, either the happiest or saddest eyes in the entire world, depending on his mood.They were happy right now Because of Silvi, of course.He was clean shaven now, and it made him look younger My heart felt weak and thin.Georgia, he said, and my stomach squeezed His accent always made my name sound lush and delicious.Hello, Rafe, I managed Its good to see you.He was beautiful than ever Every one of his features was just a little bignose, mouth, eyes Generous His hair was shorter No ponytail, and he looked perfect But for some reason, his short hair and lack of a beard made me want to cry a little, because well, because I hadnt known.Miss Georgia, Miss Georgia, I cant find my sock said Geronimo, who liked to strip down naked in the bathroom And thank God, because it gave me an excuse to stop staring at my ex I took Geronimo by the hand and led him to the bathroom, my heart banging Never in my life was I so glad to close a door.I took in a breath, then picked up the errant sock, which was lying under the sink Here you go, honey Remember what we said about keeping your clothes on in here Just pull down your pants next time, okay Okay I love you, he said, throwing his arms around my neck.Maybe if Id been a preschool teacher when Rafe and I were married, we wouldve made it.Dont start, my brain said You blew it He asked for a divorce and you couldnt say yes fast enough.I put on Geronimos sock, tied his shoes and had him wash his hands Thats my boy, I said, ruffling his hair.Were best friends, he told me.Its nice to have so many best friends, isnt it I asked Couldnt have him thinking he was my favorite, even if he was in my top five.When I came out, Geronimos dad was waiting How was my boy today He was excellent, as usual, I said And very creative.I said turd, Daddy It starts with T The dad laughed I guess it does Thanks, Georgia See you tomorrow.Bye, gentlemen Have a great afternoon.Silvi was giving her uncle the tour This is where we paint This is where we read books I have this book at home I have this one, too Read me this one, Uncle Rafe.Silvi, let me talk to Miss Georgia a moment, sweetheart We are old friends, did you know that My heart rate tripled.You are Silvi asked Thats a pleasant surprise I couldnt help a smile Silvis vocabulary was rock n roll.We are His hand rested on her head Can you look at a book by yourself for a moment, sweet one Silvi loves books, dont you, honey Which he probably knew, being her uncle and all that.Yes, I do, she said I can read some by myself.My hands were shaking, so I stuck them in the pockets of my denim jumper which was just as sexy as it sounded.Rafe came over and stood in front of me, and my heart wasnt just pounding now, but thrumming The poker in my stomach twisted again and again.Small world, I said, my voice quiet.Yes How have you been, Georgia Great Fine Im preschool teacher now.So I heard A dark eyebrow lifted.I heard you have a new restaurant Um Cherish told me My stepmother Remember her Of course I remember her.Sure Why wouldnt you I mean, how many people are named Cherish, right Let alone exotic dancer stepmoms, right Anyway, she said that that she went to your restaurant And it was good.Rafe didnt answer for a minute Why would he I was babbling like an idiot I tried to look at him and failed.Silvi says she loves school, he said finally Thank you for that The move, it was a little difficult for her.Shes doing great here I drew in a shaky breath How are you, Rafael Forced myself to look at him.His expression was neutral I had no idea what mine was Im doing very well, thank you, he said I hope it will not be too awkward, us seeing each other from time to time.Awkward Not at all Agonizing, that was a better word.No Its fine Dont worry about me Im Im great With this, I mean Its lovely to see you again Lovely to have Silvi Thats what I meant.He just kept looking at me.Are you seeing anyone I asked, then jerked back a little because I hadnt meant to ask.Yes, he said I am.Of course he was And is she is she nice Is she beautiful Is she kind Is she thin Do you love her My ex husband didnt answer immediately The silence swelled Then he said, I would rather not discuss her But yes She is nice.I nodded, my face burning Well Congratulations on the new restaurant.Thank you.Uncle Rafe This time, the voice was deeper We both turned, and there was Mason.No, Rafe said, his eyes widening in surprise It cannot be Mason Oh, madre de Dios, Mason Where is the boy You are a young man now Come Give me a hug There it was, that magical ease and warmth he had with people Mason obeyed happily, and I swallowed against the wedge in my throat.Mason had been our ring bearer.The two of them were chatting away like long lost friends, which I guessed they were.That was the shitty thing about divorce You lost that whole other family, that whole world Rafe had been so good for Mason, his gentle brand of masculinity a much better role model than Hunters seething, omnipresent hostility.Maybe if Rafe had been in the picture, Mason wouldnt have done what he did this past April.Mason, please, come meet my niece, Silvi She is a student here.Cool Hey, little kid Im Mason.Im not little Im almost a big sister, Silvi said.Oh, gotcha Sorry Mason grinned at us.I forgive you, she said sweetly.Silvi, we should go, Rafe said I have to work tonight, and I want to take you to the park and perhaps for some ice cream, what do you say I say yes Silvi got up, hugged my legs, then grabbed her uncles hand Bye, Miss Georgia, she sang out.It was good to see you, Rafe said Probably a lie.Then they were gone.Praise for Good Luck with ThatHiggins writes with her trademark heart, humor, and emotion, addressing the serious and somber subject of body
