They went home that night, and made simple microwavable dinners. They sat in front of the TV, and watched the last of the movies that he had rented. Daniel had to remind himself that he had to return those tomorrow morning.copyright protection19PENANAmPkVEpf0ld

Violet was so excited about her room, she could not stop talking about what she was going to do. “When was the last time you had a room?”copyright protection19PENANAYpA766CyiN

When Daniel asked her that, she put her fork down, and just shook her head. “Hard question.”copyright protection19PENANADjVUm4ATL0

And with that answer, Daniel didn’t proceed to push her any further. When the movie was over, Daniel had switched it to the news. With Daniel and his recliner chair, and Violet on the couch, it was such a peaceful night. The snow was melting, and it should have been a little bit warmer tomorrow.copyright protection19PENANAd7Qy2vXhvi

Daniel had no idea what she was going to do tomorrow. He was hoping that his brother could hire her. That he could use some extra help. Later that night, Karl had called. Daniel went to the other room, realizing that Violet had fell asleep on the couch.copyright protection19PENANAvuI6CPcenu

“Hey brother, so I got some news.”copyright protection19PENANA11OXWb1w4M

“Yeah? What is it?”copyright protection19PENANAwiTnQWSOeo

“So, Lily-“ Karl was cut off by his wife. Daniel hurt some muscle lean in the background, Lily telling her husband that she wanted to say the news also. They both chimed in, and screamed into the phone, “We’re pregnant!”copyright protection19PENANA7JSPPuF1I3

Daniel’s mouth had dropped. It was a lasting that he expected, but his face broke out into a huge smile. “Oh my goodness, congratulations you guys! I am so happy for you. I know you’ve been trying for such a long time.”copyright protection19PENANAwK4kH0wJwA

Lily had taken over the phone. “It is way too soon to tell if it’s a boy or girl, and we just got back from the doctors. I am only seven weeks along, but it is so exciting. You’re going to be such a great uncle.”copyright protection19PENANAv3SpqJlixz

“I’ve always wanted to be an uncle,” Daniel laughed. “So, when the baby gets old enough for me to babysit, you know I’m loading it with sugar right before sending them home.”copyright protection19PENANAGEizu7499M

“Well, we don’t have grandparents to do so, supposedly it’s your job to drive us crazy,” Lily laughed.copyright protection19PENANAcGxh1fhxYO

“You guys are going to be great parents. You’ll be amazing.”copyright protection19PENANA7uR0ThJeAh

Daniel and Karl spoke again after Lily was done. They spoke for a while. Talking about doctor appointments, and the first ultrasound, the excitement, how they found out. “Karl, I am so happy for you.”copyright protection19PENANAOhW7QqfUAo

“I’ve never been happier.”copyright protection19PENANAHN5f46vmDu

“Why didn’t you guys tell me sooner?”copyright protection19PENANAaLY2LSjv7U

Karl waited for a second. “Daniel, don’t tell Lily I told you this, but she’s had three miscarries before.”copyright protection19PENANAMVbJ329iXK

Daniel’s mouth hung open a little. “Why didn’t you tell me?”copyright protection19PENANAHFyMVDSqZw

“Because it was Lily’s wishes not to tell. This one will go great. I know it will. I really do,” Karl said. Daniel didn’t won’t to farther his excitement, to take away his brother’s moment of happiness.copyright protection19PENANAVahUc3MwyT

“Yeah, me too.”copyright protection19PENANAqlPC4SFeaC

“Oh, Daniel.”copyright protection19PENANAZRixEdbxEb

“Yay, brother?”copyright protection19PENANA4zlluypg5Y

“I was thinking about that girl today, what we were talking about. I really thought about it. I cannot pay for wages, you know that. But, if you are willing to . . .”copyright protection19PENANA9wkZ8pROD2

“Yes, of course.”copyright protection19PENANArDUJbyXm6B

“I just need to check her birth certificate and the normal information.”copyright protection19PENANAxabTwFsVWx

“Karl, I don’t think she has any of that.”copyright protection19PENANAU63e5cDX0h

“So . . . under the table type thing?”copyright protection19PENANAZrUTa5s8ry

“Please,” Daniel begged. “I’m going to help her, she needs it.”copyright protection19PENANAKZJVTfBlby

“Daniel, may I ask you a question?”copyright protection19PENANAS5EWjK8WH8

“Yes, of course, anything.”copyright protection19PENANAeGA8AKe3SF

He heard a long sigh. “There are millions of homeless people. Why did you want to help this one?”copyright protection19PENANACDFlzyBaUM

Daniel knew he didn’t mean anything offensive, but he could not help to ball up his fist in frustration. “She . . . I really don’t know, Karl, I really don’t. I just feel like I have to do this. I have to help her.”copyright protection19PENANAJMRnJb7R8O

“If that’s what you think. We have to go. Love you brother.”copyright protection19PENANA0mvAv6lJ9e

“Love you too.”copyright protection19PENANApLR47qDIBx

When Daniel told up the phone, he looked at the time and decided it was too late in the night. He decided it was probably best for both and go to bed. So he went over to the, turning the TV off, and lightly shaking Violet.copyright protection19PENANAukkmI3xPVG

She jumped, and gave a slight scream, looking around nervously. Daniel jumped back, caught off his guard. “What? Where? What’s . . . oh, Daniel. Hi, where . . .”copyright protection19PENANAEW39xygShp

He regretted waking her up. The fear that was in her eyes, the look of pure confusion. She looked like a scared little puppy. “Hey, you are okay.”copyright protection19PENANA7GaZLhqoZ1

Violet put a hand to her forehand and nodded. “Yeah, I am.”copyright protection19PENANAWumgQ4koUf

“We should get going to bed. But you can sleep out here if you want.”copyright protection19PENANA5yc8IJGYCX

“No, no,” she said, kicking the blanket off. “I’m going to my room. Goodnight, Daniel.”copyright protection19PENANAoJEyJpQ9OQ

He watched her walk up the stairs, and closing her bedroom door. Once she was inside, she put her head against the door. She was trying to claim herself down. She had felt so silly, so childish.copyright protection19PENANAaKlx0cBlAw

She tried to shake it all away. She tried telling herself she was safe. She tried telling herself it was okay.copyright protection19PENANAAG5NONwuM9

Everything was going to be okay.copyright protection19PENANAsaT6JCwzLk
