during this time, colin also confided in katrina because he was always over at her and derick’s house, best friends and musicians and all. then i began to notice that katrina was spending more and more time with colin, at a bar down the street. derick would ask me where katrina was, as i was over at the caledonia house, and i would have to let him know that neither of them were there. they were out at the bar hanging out. often, when i went over to the caledonia house to hang out with colin, i’d find katrina in colin’s room. this started to be a frequent occurence as well, and yet katrina and my relationship seemed normal, so did derick and colin’s friendship, as did mine and colin’s, when we were together.
one night at the caledonia house during our weekly tuesday theme party colin got a call from anna’s mom, who was a midwife. they were coming to the house to pick up colin…anna was in the backseat, upside down, and bleeding profusely. three days later, they lost the baby, who had been taking from her in emergency surgery, put on life support, and passed. he was three months premature.
katrina and colin continued their affair, as it was. i confirmed both mine and derick’s suspicions by waiting outside of their favorite bar one night, waiting for them to exit…upon leaving, i saw her twirl around and when she stopped, he kissed her, and that was the end. i told derick, went over to stay with the baby while he went over to colin’s bedroom and busted him and katrina. gross.
i split town. left for a few months, traveling, growing wings. upon return, the first night, i went to katrina’s, hoping to rekindle our estranged sisterhood. i missed her. i mean, we even had the same tattoo together. i missed her, hoped she had regained some sensibility while i had been away. when i got there on my first night back, to my surprise, colin came over. i was paralyzed. things seemed pretty mellow, though, as he picked up the banjo, and i was transfixed, as always. soon after, katrina and colin tried to seduce me, saying they were both in love with me and wanted to have a threesome. later! i split town again.
