For the first time in his life, Gavin was alone.
Stan, his brother wasn’t there. Stan had met a girl and married her without fanfare then went off to visit her folks, leaving Gavin as used toilet paper.
This hurt him.
He couldn’t understand how Stan could go like that. And for two reasons, the kill the loneliness and fatten his pocket, rented out the two extra bedrooms.
Gavin went through a few tenants before he met Deja. She was going to college and needed a room. He rented her the master bedroom with its own bathroom, and moved himself the small side of the house.
