It could get sketchy
Audrey was getting a little worried. No Henry. He was suppose to be working. She had plenty for him to do. There was a whole cart of donations for him to work on at his computer. There were records to download and edit and get into the system. There were some really good donations, too. Like Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter on DVD. Even Skyfall. Usually, she let him take them home to watch before they released them to the public. That was the kind of great boss she was. But at the moment she was ready to punch him if he ever got here.
She looked at the clock. It was fifteen after.
"What's wrong?" Kayla looked at Audrey as if she might be keeping a secret from her.
"Its Henry. He should be here by now." Audrey fumed.
"Are you sure that's the only thing bothering, you?" Kayla stared at Audrey as if they needed to talk. Now.
"All right. I'm sorry I told you." Audrey hugged herself as she watched the clock. She really wanted to call him, but if someone didn't make it in without calling...well, Henry could get canned. "It was just an accident, Mom, told me, anyway. I didn't want to keep it from you."
"Really?" Kayla looked sad as if everyone left her out in the cold.
"Well, aren't you going to talk to Mom?" Audrey looked at her as it wasn't that big of a deal.
"I don't know what to say." Kayla shrugged.
"Well, evidently, no one wants to tell you, you're adopted." Audrey sighed. "Just say something. Say anything. Throw a fit." Audrey was serious. She would throw a tantrum. She wouldn't care what any of them would think in her family.
Audrey watched the clock. She sent Henry a text.
Where in the hell are you?
