8. Be Careful What You Wish For

  "Come on sweety, you just have to put it under your tongue for a minute. It won't kill you, I promise.", I cooed to Alan.
  "But it feels weird. And I think just having it in my mouth will make me sicker", Alan grumbled. The girls had cancelled our brunch, so we went and picked out paint instead. After picking out paint for our house, he had actually become sick.
  "Oh, come on. I just need to find your temperature to see if I can leave you on your own or not."
  "Well, in that case, I'm fine. You go to work and have some fun. Do your daily thing. I can take care of myself", he tried, but sputtered out a row of coughs right after. I laughed lightly at him.
  "You need me to take care of you. I can miss some work, it won't hurt anybody. You have to let me stay with you. I'm worried about you staying sick at home all by yourself", I pleaded, finishing with a ridiculous pouty lip.
  "Ugh. Alright. But no feeding me, understand?"
  "No promises", I said with a smile as I shoved the thermometer in his mouth. I left it there until it beeped. He practically spat it out of his mouth. I picked it up off his blanket and read it. 103 degrees. Yikes.
  "Welp, I'm definitely staying with you today. Your temperature is 103. I may be able to get it back down to normal by the end of today though."
  "Uuggh. I can take care of myself", he grumbled. He turned over and handed me the phone, knowing no amount of rejection would change my mind.

    I cleaned up Alan's dishes while he slept. All he had the energy for was eating a little bowl of vegetable soup, and drinking a single glass of water. I kissed his forehead after feeling it. His temperature had gone down a bit. That was good.
    I checked my email while he slept. I figured he wouldn't need me for a bit. The computer loaded after 5 minutes, and I logged in. When it loaded my desktop, it told me I had a couple emails. I clicked on the email icon, and waited patiently as it also loaded. I had 3 emails. One of them was junk, so I deleted it. Another was from my mother. She replied to my 'thank you' for the wedding gifts. The third was from an address I didn't recognize. Confused, I clicked on it to investigate. In all caps and red lettering, it read: 
          WE KNOW YOU WHAT YOU SAW. YOU BETTER KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT. YOU MIGHT WANT TO WATCH YOURSELF, I KNOW WE HAVE BEEN. GO BACK TO TENDING TO YOUR HUSBAND. HE'S GOING TO WAKE SOON. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED....
    I was so startled I jumped out of my chair and away from my computer. I looked in on Alan, just to make sure he was ok. When was that message sent? I looked at the monitor; 3 minutes ago. I just saw it a minute ago. How did this person know I was home with Alan today? The only person who knows that is my boss. I quickly exited my email and turned off the computer; I had had enough of it for one day. I got into my pajamas and joined Alan in bed, hoping that I wasn't being watched right now, but knowing that wasn't the case.
