Rhea couldn't remember ever feeling the need to be home like she did now. She had never fit into the family which regrettably was hers. Her mother never liked her and thought her daughter to be strange her father thought her too weak. It wasn't made any better by the fact that her siblings found her to be too quiet for their taste and would constantly ignore her. However, with Leroy in the house, everything felt different. She didn't know why but all she wanted was to be as close to him as possible. He didn't even know her yet and she had no idea how he was ever going to notice her when all she did was freeze every time she saw him coming. She would hide behind doors and table so he didn't notice her.

As usual Rhea found her way to the laundry room at noon where she knew he would be at that time. No one knew it, but every day, she would go there and watch him secretly wishing that one day she would have the courage to talk to him. Rhea had never been the most confident person in the family and Leroy only seemed to bring this side of herself out even more often. If her father would see her now it would be more than enough proof that she was weak.

The door to the laundry room was wide open. That was good because she wouldn't have to take a look through the window like she usually did. She crept up to it carefully and sat not to close on the floor. Just like she had been expecting, Leroy was busy on his phone and would pretend to be working once he had his mother walking close by. Rhea had known his mother her whole life so she knew the woman was as tough as nails. No one even Rhea's own mother would ever disrespect her. That Leroy would defy the woman was in itself a brave act. This act of rebellion only served to fascinate Rhea even more. She herself could never do anything that would offend her parents like that. Not that she even wanted to. Rhea was the kind of person to listen to and follow instructions down to the last bit. That was the only thing her father liked about her.
