the balance of it


the balance of it



Henry knew very well, what was going on behind the bathroom door. He gritted a face of disgust. Then came a knock from the front door,

He was expecting Camille, but it was Gage with a two boxes of pizza and Halie with the baby, right behind him.

"What's up?" Gage smiled.

"Um.." Henry didn't know where to start. Naturally, Halie and Gage made themselves at home. They'd brought salad and sodas too.

"I think Josie is sick." Henry shrugged.

"I'm OK." Josie's voice sounded ever so ghostly, coming from the bathroom.

Henry went to check on her. She was sitting on the cold bathroom floor, shivering.

"Are you sure?" He got her a glass of water.

She nodded, took a sip and spit it in the commode.

"Its a good sign." She sighed.

"Really?" He found that hard to believe.

Her head bobbled. She shivered more.

He started a shower for her and went to get her some clean clothes.

"Do you want me to send Gage and Halie home? They brought pizza." He was certain that might cause another moment for her to throw up.

She shook her head, no. "I hope they brought cheese. I really want a good cheese pizza." She smiled.

He got her in the shower and cleaned up the parts of the bathroom she didn't get too.
