That was the question. I decided to give K the number, but not before I called my Mom, talked to NYEBoy, and talked to S. I wanted to talk to S before deciding on whether or not to give my sister his number. My mom agreed. NYEBoy said to just give it to her because he was tired of hearing about how great S was.
I talked with S for awhile. We talked about what he has been doing over the past few years. He was married, but has since divorced his baby's mother. He currently lives in Virginia. He's still in the Navy, but I'm not sure if he's active or in the reserves because he also co-owns a clothing/shoe store out there. He asked how I was doing. He asked how Mom was doing. He even said he missed all the crazy shit my brother had done. He did want my sister to call him. I told him I didn't want him to focus on being in a relationship with K right now, but that i know he is the one person that can comfort K right now. He's the one person who she will listen to.
After I arrived back home from talking to my Mom and S, I told K I needed to talk to her. Before telling her about contacting S, I first needed to talk to her about her outburst in Target earlier. We discussed it. I knew it was from being stressed about everything going on right now, but we made the decision to act quickly because we didn't need K or Thugboy to change their mind. It was for the best.
After talking with K, I told her I had to tell her something. I told her I had talked to S. She started crying. She asked if I was serious or if I was lying to her. I told her I was serious and that he did want to talk to her. She continued to cry for a bit. She smoked a cig, then called him. He apparently had fallen asleep, because he didn't answer. He did text me at 5 am saying he had been sleeping.
K called when she woke up. They talked off and on all day long. I'm not sure where her head is at right now, but she's relieved, at least some what, to have talked to him.
I think, I hope, I have made the right decision. Let's just hope it all works out for the best.
