Is Everything Rebuilt?
June 5, 2022 at 7:00 am
"Good morning, LazyTown! It's a balmy 75 degrees out and the temperatures are going climb again today as the heat wave continues. Those of you with breathing or skin problems are encouraged to stay indoors with air conditioning. That goes for those of you that are elderly too. But enough talk lets get back to some music. You're listening to WWSD 98.6 FM."
Samantha's hand smacked the alarm button shutting the radio off. Immediately she regretted doing this as she could hear her parents arguing again. They had been like this for the past few weeks and it was beginning to get on her nerves. In fact, the ten year old wasn't even sure what they were arguing about anymore.
She grabbed up some clean clothes from her closet and made her way down to the bathroom. Once inside she locked the door and hoped that would quiet the shouting but of course she was wrong. Quickly, she stripped, threw her clothes in the laundry basket, and jumped into the shower.
About thirty minutes later, Samantha was ready for school even though it didn't start until nine. It only took twenty five minutes to walk there so she had a little over an hour. Strangely, it was quiet in the house and she thought that maybe her parents had settled their differences. Not wanting to jinx it, she climbed up the tube and out.
Walking along she noticed that the slight breeze was not helping the heat situation but she was almost to Joshua's apartment so she quickened her pace. Luckily the apartment building was air conditioned and she breathed a little easier. Knocking on the door, Samantha waited for someone to answer it.
"Good morning, Sam!" Stephanie smiled as she opened the door. "Pretty hot out, huh?"
"Yes it is." She answered. Stephanie saw the look on her face.
"Oh, honey have they been arguing again?" She asked wrapping her arms around her niece. Samantha nodded as tears ran down her cheeks. She wasn't fooling anyone including herself about not being upset.
Sportacus heard the sobbing and hobbled out to the kitchen. He was out of his casts for almost a month and a half but his speed still hadn't gotten up to where it was before the tornado.
"Is everything ok?" He asked. He saw Samantha crying and knew immediately what was wrong. Without another word, he went out the apartment door. The above average hero couldn't take seeing his niece cry.
Joshua came out of the bathroom and saw the scene before him. Quickly he went over to Samantha and his mother. Stephanie saw him and let him take Samantha into his arms. She then went into the kitchen.
"Samantha, it's going to be ok." Joshua said wiping the tears from her cheeks. "We survived the twister and we can survive this." She nodded but wasn't sure if she believed him.
"I'm sorry." She said.
"For what?" He asked.
"For crying like a baby." Samantha told him.
"Are you kidding? I'd rather have you cry than keep it inside; besides my shirt needed to be washed again anyway." Joshua smiled. For the first time this morning, Samantha smiled.
"See that's all I needed." He told her.
"Here Sam." Stephanie said handing her a cup of her favorite drink, chocolate milk.
"Thanks Aunt Stephanie." She said.
"You're welcome. After you finish, we'll get you all cleaned up for school." Stephanie smiled. She hoped that Sportacus was having good luck with Robbie and Amanda.
