101. Home Early?
When we got home, Skylar's car was in the drive way. "Dad why is mum home?" He asked. "I have no idea." I replied.
"Hey." Skylar said. "Hi. Is everything okay?" I asked. "Yeah why?" She replied. "You're home early mom. You're never home early." Ashton said. "Yeah. Liz wasn't feeling well, so I brought her home from school." She said. "Oh. Okay." I replied. I noticed she didn't show her hands. She kept them under the table. I looked at her. She gave me her we-will-talk-later face. "So buddy how did it go?" She asked. "Good. Everyone liked dad." Ashton replied. I smiled. "Why don't you go get your uncles, and get your homework done." I said. He nodded and walked upstairs. "Well, care to explain why you are home early?" I asked. "Hey Luke, what's up?" Calum asked walking down the stairs with the rest of the guys. "I told you. Liz was sick." She said. "Skylar, just tell me. Did you start again." I said. She looked to the floor. "Why did you start?" Michael asked. She sighed. "I got fired today. Apparently cursing off your boss isn't going to get you anywhere." She said. "I needed that job luke. I need to pay off the schools, and the medical bills." She said. "You should be a singer." Calum said. "Wait. You got fired. And you can't pay the medical bills and the schools? Sky, you have us. We can help." I said. She nodded. "Mom! Liz is throwing up!" Ashton yelled.
"Liz, honey are you feeling okay?" I asked. "No. I feel sick." She said. "Hey, I got the bucket." Luke said walking in the room. "Here baby. Drink this." He said handing her some water. She threw it up. I sighed. "Get some rest, and I will stay home tomorrow." I said. She nodded, and I kissed her head.
