one hell of a day

“How did the meeting go?”

Kate sighed rubbing a hand over her makeup-smudged face. “Not as good as I hoped, the company wants to sue.”

“That’s going to get messy.”

“Don’t I know it.” The water running into the sink interrupted their conversation for a moment. “Did you go to see Julia?”

“I tried.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?”

“She didn’t want to see me.” Her brother, Connor, sighed. “She wanted to see mother.”

“Mom won’t see her, why doesn’t Julia understand that?”

“She refuses to give up I suppose.” He shrugged. “Either way, she told the nurse – who told me – that she would not see either of us until we brought mom.”

“She’s being ridiculous!”

“Julia will probably get over it. You know her obsessions, she’s adamant about something for a week, then gets over it. She’ll be begging us to come see her soon enough.”

“I hope you’re right.”

“I hope they company decides not to sue.”

“Me too.”
