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 protection23PENANAJd4nYlGZ9v

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 protection23PENANAZRfbh24yVw

When Daniel asked her that, she put her fork down, and just shook her head. “Hard question.”copyright protection23PENANALU4JeXu1V2

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 protection23PENANAFFgK2f5Ief

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 protection23PENANAee7tpowuXr

“Hey brother, so I got some news.”copyright protection23PENANA1Im5sA3XCY

“Yeah? What is it?”copyright protection23PENANA0hDg2Gw7pL

“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 protection23PENANAnDZv6oUCTR

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 protection23PENANA4UArZ3230E

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 protection23PENANA10WFhYmN6L

“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 protection23PENANAyuoxZvWT8Q

“Well, we don’t have grandparents to do so, supposedly it’s your job to drive us crazy,” Lily laughed.copyright protection23PENANAKdKkEKnGNo

“You guys are going to be great parents. You’ll be amazing.”copyright protection23PENANAkPoguFeRsk

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 protection23PENANAC1O0zOwvHE

“I’ve never been happier.”copyright protection23PENANAlrR6MvQacD

“Why didn’t you guys tell me sooner?”copyright protection23PENANAyxsWNXC2O4

Karl waited for a second. “Daniel, don’t tell Lily I told you this, but she’s had three miscarries before.”copyright protection23PENANAnq6crF0XbI

Daniel’s mouth hung open a little. “Why didn’t you tell me?”copyright protection23PENANACwauCW0t7c

“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 protection23PENANA6FJzCxxeAl

“Yeah, me too.”copyright protection23PENANAjXMpae4bcf

“Oh, Daniel.”copyright protection23PENANATOM3ip0jS7

“Yay, brother?”copyright protection23PENANAwZNfzpN6Dn

“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 protection23PENANArXlemwsrHE

“Yes, of course.”copyright protection23PENANAHAtuEMTF5M

“I just need to check her birth certificate and the normal information.”copyright protection23PENANAMBMzRlZEsD

“Karl, I don’t think she has any of that.”copyright protection23PENANA2TAo8XVApC

“So . . . under the table type thing?”copyright protection23PENANAf6dIBSuuxA

“Please,” Daniel begged. “I’m going to help her, she needs it.”copyright protection23PENANAhjb4T2pTHR

“Daniel, may I ask you a question?”copyright protection23PENANAwKL79U44uu

“Yes, of course, anything.”copyright protection23PENANAHJBUscMWHk

He heard a long sigh. “There are millions of homeless people. Why did you want to help this one?”copyright protection23PENANAwYEI2xLsrs

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 protection23PENANAkYd65n0aru

“If that’s what you think. We have to go. Love you brother.”copyright protection23PENANAE8ef3GrPD8

“Love you too.”copyright protection23PENANA9a7OSalDCN

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 protection23PENANA6WLk3QH308

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 protection23PENANAyFhMUktma7

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 protection23PENANAvkhC8aMuOp

Violet put a hand to her forehand and nodded. “Yeah, I am.”copyright protection23PENANAhUm2fpTWsU

“We should get going to bed. But you can sleep out here if you want.”copyright protection23PENANA50zmNuHhRR

“No, no,” she said, kicking the blanket off. “I’m going to my room. Goodnight, Daniel.”copyright protection23PENANApmbHZjRLOF

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 protection23PENANAb5Ax8QW1Mp

She tried to shake it all away. She tried telling herself she was safe. She tried telling herself it was okay.copyright protection23PENANAVSpvfdZWvR

Everything was going to be okay.copyright protection23PENANANUdZBcjtY7
