"Hey girl, it's me."
"Hey me," I responded, no clue who it could me.
"It's me, VJ. I was wondering if you'd be willing to have a little chat with me. I wanna run something by you," he said cagily.
I shrugged. "Sure, why not. When and where?"
"Abandoned Warehouse at 10 am. See you there."
"Sure, sweetie. It's not like I'm going anywhere," Simone said with a sigh.
I glanced back at her. "You okay Mom?"
She waved her hand at me and made a face. "No. Go! Go have fun! I just remember the days I could do whatever I wanted to do. Devil-may-care."
I winced. Sounded like Mom missed a little adventure in her life. I made a note to try to think of something that would get her out of the house.
VJ had explained that they were missing a crew member & seeing that I was a bit of a rebel, he thought I might be interested.
"What do you want me to do?" I'd asked him, then listened while he'd explained his plan.
"Sleep well, sweetie," Mom called after me absently.
Maybe I'd have time to talk to her tomorrow about getting out more often.
"Gamma!" Citron cried.
Simone frowned. "I have to let you go, sweetie. Danjou wants out of the crib." She paused. "Okay, I love you, too!"
