His day had been a long one. His stress levels were high, his head was aching, and he wanted nothing more than to go home to his comfy couch and his favorite person. Well, one of his favorite people.
"Okay," Auggie said falling onto the couch. "What story will it be tonight?"
"This one!" piped a small voice. Two tiny hands pushed a thin book onto his lap. Running his fingers over the Braille lettering on the cover, a somewhat exasperated look crossed Auggie's normally sweet features.
"Again?" he asked. A tiny body quietly situated itself on his left ready for the story. "Alright," Auggie said giving in. He opened the small book and began to recite the words that had been forever burned into his mind. The tiny hands would turn the cardboard pages every once in a while so that it's owner could look at the pictures. That tiny hand would forget to turn pages and after a short while it stopped turning the pages completely but Auggie continued to recite the words from memory.
Finally, the tiny body breathed slowly and steadily indicating that sleep had taken hold. Auggie closed the book and set it on the cushion beside him. He scooped up Lexi making sure not to wake her and expertly made his way up the stairs to her room. He tucked her in and when she stirred slightly from being moved, he kissed the top of her head recited the final sentence from her favorite book. "Goodnight stars, goodnight air, goodnight noises everywhere."
