"No..no..you have to go see if..if Daisy is really all right." Sara's words only gave Omaha a festered wince. Was she serious? He couldn't get a word in edgewise over the phone. Actually, he never expected to hear from her. And of course, she wasn't going to ask how Thanksgiving went.
They'd ended up at Blackie and Minnie's at noon. That woman must have gotten up with the cows. It was seriously a fresh turkey. After a miserable tale of how the turkey came to be..he and Sheena lost their appetites.
And then Minnie's sister June showed up. Needless to say, Omaha found... out the hard way... that Blackie was mixed up, with the both of them. So NO, he hadn't heard about anything bad happening in the neighborhood.
"So..so what am I suppose to do now?" He didn't want to have to physically go to Daisy and Max's. He'd just stop by the diner and let Max fill him in. Of course, he didn't mention this to Sara.
It was good to have some hot coffee. By the time he got to the diner, it was empty. Perhaps a lot were out shopping for deals.
"You, didn't find any deals?" Max smiled when he brought him the special, two sunny side eggs, a biscuit with extra sausage.
Omaha shook his head, no. He didn't believe in Black Friday. Of course, this wasn't the time to elaborate there was no gift giving at his house while growing up.
"Sara sent me." Omaha got around to saying by his second cup of coffee.
"Sara?" Now Max looked alarmed.
Omaha explained Sara and Taylor were out on their honeymoon, somewhere near the Virgin Islands.
"Anyway, didn't Daisy tell you about that call?"
"No." Max sat down with the coffee pot. "What happened?" He made it sound as if Sara and Taylor must have already broken up. He nursed his bottom lip.
"Nothing, that I know of." Omaha shrugged to Max's concern about Sara and Taylor. "She..she's concerned about Daisy. Daisy told her something happened."
"Huh?" Max winced as if he'd really have to think on this one. "Oh..." he finally remembered. "You know, that kid..you brought in here..that one time..."
Omaha could only think of one kid that he knew. That was Brick.
"He's in the hospital." Max told him about the Thanksgiving incident then.
Omaha couldn't help but frown. This was a lot closer to home, than he thought.
