Sasha hadn't meant to just stand there and listen to their conversation, but Avery had perked up so much that he was intrigued. He didn't know what they were talking about, not sure he wanted to know with the word 'cops' thrown around so easily. But Avery had looked so different in the split second of happiness. Avery was already handsome, Sasha had known that for some time, but in that moment he was beautiful. He secretly hoped Avery could make it to whatever it was he wanted to do.
Sasha walked into his apartment, placing his keys on a small white table next to a picture of a chubby cheeked little girl with black pigtails and a ruffled teal shirt. She looked to be about three or four. He walked right into his kitchen and pulled out a Pepsi and a jar of pickles. He walked over to his sofa, pulled out his laptop and turned on Skype.
He was on it for only a few mintues before the chubby cheeked girl popped up with a huge smile on her face.
"My little panda!" Sasha grinned.
The girl giggled, "Hey daddy!"
