Charity pursed her lips & went cross-eyed.
Willard walked from the room, intent on finding Davina.
"Don't worry, sweetheart. They'll still be here when we get back!" Tearley said, patting his wife on the arm.
Davina waved to Willard as he drove away.
"Oh course, sweetheart. He's on his way."
Davina made a face and looked at the clock. "Mom! We're an hour late! I'm going to miss graduation!"
"He'll be here momentarily!"
Tearley heard his daughter whining as he rounded the corner, leaning heavily on his cane.
"LOOK! There he is!" Charity announced brightly, sending her husband a wide smile.
"FINALLY!" Davina gasped, hurrying inside.
Charity called out to him. "I'm just going to finish this reading for work!"
"I'll see you at home then, sweetheart!"
"Not if I beat you there," Charity mumbled. Really, Tearley was certainly taking a long time to get anywhere these days!
The moment she walked through the door, she called for her family to open their gifts.
Charity reached over and squeezed her daughter's hand. "Of course sweetie. He's at the hospital now."
"Mama, I'm sorry," Davina called softly. She hadn't meant to worry her mother. She just... she was worried...
Tearley- Throw Gift Giving party
Charity - nada
*AN - Oh. My. Goodness. I kinda feel like today was an EPIC failure. Lol. But, in some ways, it turned out awesome!
What do you do on Snowflake Day? You throw a party!
What do you do when your daughter has graduation? Cancel the Gift Giving Party! DOH!
And seriously - Tearley's cane was driving me NUTS! It took them TWO hours to get to City Hall! Lol. I was actually worried she was going to miss it!
Then, hilariously - I found Giovani waiting outside their front door. I assume he was making it to their Gift Giving party a little bit late. Lol. But, Benito shooed him away. NOOOOO - go get your SISTER! ARG! You're KILLING me!!!
Then, I finally decided to give the gifts and send them to bed to end the awful day. Nope. Tearley crashed out. And then awesomely, he got called into the hospital to do a shift! LOL
What a day!!
