thinking on it

Nancy was so exhausted. Really they needed to leave. People could think what they wanted. Happy Trails! Whatever. She needed to be home to rest.

She looked at her ankles. She thought they might be swelling. She hoped not.

Everyone was packing up the truck. She expected to see Dayton, somewhere. He was here. She'd seen him earlier, but not now.

"Where do you suppose he went?" Nancy winced.

"Who?" Geoff looked at her kind of funny.

"Who do you think?" She was stressing now. She had to see him. They needed to talk. She wanted him to know that she was fine with things. Fine with him and Geoff. But she felt she might make things even more strange if she said another word. "Dayton. You should find him."

"Me?" He looked as if that was beside the point.

"Well, then get someone to find him for you." Nancy was sure of it now. They needed to go home together.

Wow, I didn't think that Nancy would actually turn out to be so concerned about Dayton! Hopefully things work out alright
