Becketts - Round 21
Dad took every opportunity he found to remind her how much Mom loved her, but the guilt still lingered.
Finally, after lunch and a game of cards, the McMillans bid them goodbye.
Anthony breathed a sigh of relief. "Thank God! Man! Meeting parents is nerve-wracking! Especially when you've been caught with your pants down around them!"
Michelle laughed. "I'm sure they don't even remember that!"
"More like they're trying to block it!" Pausing a moment, Anthony tapped her shoulder. "Come on, let's go hit the home gym."
She mentally fanned herself...
He was definitely hot!
Anthony made a face. "I'm allergic to cats, Michelle," he said sadly. "And I really don't like pets. Is that a deal-breaker?" he asked sadly.
Michelle's hopes & dreams shattered into pieces. "Not a..." Sighing, she hugged Anthony. "No, it's not a deal-breaker. I love you!"
Anthony hugged her tight. "Oh thank God, I was a little worried you were going to pitch me to the curb!"
"I think I have a bug..." she said hoarsely, praying she didn't vomit again.
How long had it been? 10 minutes? 20 minutes?
Michelle smiled at him and hugged him tight.
Mrs. Michelle Beckett, he thought. Mine!
Gingerly he helped her to the bed and ordered her to rest. She'd given him quite a scare!
Conrad was worried. "Can I speak with her? Should I come over?"
Anthony shook his head, "No sir, she's resting now. But, I'll have her call you. I think she'll be okay."
Michelle smiled. She could get used to being waited on.
Michelle laughed. "No! Go! I'm not an invalid!"
"I know, babe. I just worry, that's all!"
