"Are you going to stay in bed all day?"
Brady was tempted but he was too hungry to stay put. He got up and took a shower He got dressed and went downstairs. Ari went ahead of him. When he got to the table he got a shock when he saw Caroline sitting next to Victor.
Caroline and Victor just looked at each other. Brady was sure he was missing something but he didn't know what. Ari came up behind him and whispered in his ear, "Don't you remember that she died in a wood chipper accident?"
Brady couldn't believe that Maggie was dead. He sat down and ate in silence. Everyone else was talking about the baby Brady wondered if he should try to make things right. He was afraid he'd lose Ari again. Victor did look happy with Caroline.
"Brady are you okay?"
"I'm sorry I hit my head. I'm feeling a little strange."
Caroline just nodded and passed him the orange juice. He poured some into his glass and drained it. It wasn't whiskey but it felt good going down his throat.
To Be Cont.
