Continued from a Sister’s Fate.
“Surprise,” they both said, unenthusiastically.
Brittany walked up to Jeanette and said, “Well, what do you think?”
“It’s perfect,” she said. “But how did you guys get everything ready so fast?”
“Magic!” Alvin said, snapping his fingers.
“Okay, Alvin,” Simon said. “Whatever.”
“Well, little sister, I think you should sit down,” Brittany said. She helped Jeanette over to the couch. “We got a take-out for you two. The TV and satellite are hooked up. So you two are set for the night.”
“And what about you and Alvin?”
“I have to work at the club tonight,” Alvin said. “With Simon moving out I have to put in a few more hours to pay the rent.”
“Poor guy,” Brittany said. “I’m going back to the hospital tonight. Eleanor might need me.”
“I wish I could be there,” Jeanette said.
“Hey, you just stay here and rest. I’ll call you if anything happens. Okay?”
“Make sure you do,” Jeanette said, pointing a finger at her.
“Okay,” Brittany said, overemphasizing the word. She gave her sister a hug and left the apartment. Alvin followed her.
“So are you heading out?” he asked.
“As soon as I stop by my apartment. I need to pick up a few things.”
“You’re not spending the night at the hospital again?”
“Maybe,” she said.
“Brittany, I don’t want you out alone, especially at night. What if this guy comes after you next? I don’t get off until 2am.”
“I’ll be fine, besides Theodore will probably be there. I’ll just ask him for a ride.”
“Okay, but please call me and let me know what going on.”
“I will,” she said as they reached her apartment. She walked in and found a folded piece of paper on the floor. “This is strange.”
“What’s that?” he asked.
She opened the it and read it. Suddenly her face went pale, and she dropped it on the floor.
“Brittany?” Alvin questioned. Brittany didn’t say anything. Just stood there as if in a catatonic state.
Alvin picked up the note and read it:
Sorry about your sister,
