Valerie really did enjoy spending time with her brother. it was always surprising to people to find out that they were the same age. Then people would think they were twins or step-siblings or something, people rarely assumed she and Melissa were adopted. Which Valerie took as a credit to how close the three of them were.
With a roll of her eyes, Valerie shook her head to Adrian’s words. ”Well, burgers are best enjoyed with family.” She said right before wiping her mouth with a napkin. As good as they were , they weren’t what anyone would call neat.
She had to think for a moment about Adrian’s question. ”Oh, there is a wildlife refuge not to far from here. I heard you can hike or take canoes to see the area and take a picnic , if you want. I had thought that might be a fun day.” Of course, right in Valerie’s idea of fun because she could see a lot of animals but she thought maybe her brother and sister would like what else they had there. ”They even supposedly have ziplines.” Valerie was more wanting to stick to canoes or hiking but if one of her siblings really wanted to go ziplining she might be willing.
There was never any telling what would happen with Melissa; Valerie did hope that her sister managed to get a recording contract, someday but there was always the thought in the back of her mind if her little sister was really ready.
