Chapter Twenty-one

My own alarm came at six, a scant two hours after Tim’s the next morning. I’d roused ever so slightly when he climbed out of bed. I asked him to look in on Derrick, since we’d both completely forgotten the doctor’s caution to check my brother for signs of concussion. Tim came back in and said Derrick had good color and was breathing regularly, so I kissed my man and rolled over to two more hours of oblivion, missing the sunrise completely.

Now, though, I had a bird to attend to, a walk with Gin to squeeze in, and a shop to operate. I splashed water on my face and threw on my dress and leggings in a hurry. Why hadn’t I thought to bring a change of clothes? I hated putting on last night’s outfit in the morning. Oh, well. I’d be home and in my walking togs soon enough.

My own check of my brother had the same results as Tim’s—sound asleep, with normal color in his face and regular breathing. I let him sleep. The man needed his rest, and it was only six o’clock, after all. I headed into the kitchen where Tim, the angel, had left me a cup’s worth of coffee in the French press. While I heated the brew in the microwave I read the note he’d left me next to a small ring with a key on it.
