Continued from a Sister’s Fate.
The orderly wheeled her in the elevator and down to the first floor. She waited by the entrance, while Simon pulled the car up. He came out to help her in the car. She leaned on him for support, and slowed entered the passenger side of the car.
“Are you alright?” he asked.
“I’m fine,” she said.
He swung over the driver’s side and got in. “You ready to go home?”
“Our home? It’s all I ever wanted.”
“Me, too,” he said and leaned over and kissed her before starting the car. Jeanette was mostly quiet through most of the drive. Her thoughts were on Eleanor and what the doctor had told her.
“Hey, you sure you’re alright?” Simon asked her. “You seen so quiet.”
“I’m fine. I’m just worried about Eleanor. Every time I think about it…”
“Oh, sweetheart, please, try not to think about.”
“I can’t help it,” she said eyes sorrowful. “She’s my little sister.”
“I know, but things will work out. Now promise me you’re doing to rest today. I never what to come that close to losing you ever again.”
“Don’t worry about that. You’re never going to lose me, and I’m glad to be out of that hospital.” She rested her head on his shoulder the rest of the ride home.
At Jeanette and Simon’s new apartment, Alvin and Brittany were inside getting things ready. “Okay, Alvin,” Brittany said. “How does it look?”
“Great,” he said, nodding his head devilishly.
“The sign,” she corrected. “Come on, Alvin, get serious. I hate being on ladders.”
“It looks great,” he said. “So calm down.” Suddenly, Brittany lost her balance, but before she was able to hit the floor Alvin caught her. “Hey,” he said, putting her down. “You okay.”
“Yeah,” she said, not realizing how close she was standing to him. “Good thing you were here.”
“Yeah, good thing,” he said as leaned down to kiss her. She put her arms around his neck, and deepened the kiss. Someone came through the door, but nether of them heard, not at first.
“Hey, you two.” They both turned startled to see Simon and Jeanette standing in the doorway. “Were we interrupting?”
