"Do you want us to come and get you?" Max spoke to Dayton on the phone. "Geoff is worried sick about you."
"Is he?" Dayton seemed happy about that. "Well, I think Ruby could, you know, get me home. I mean, we're just in Iowa, you know."
"Where are you going to stay?" Max questioned.
"I'd like to stay with you if I could, but how does Chris feel about that?" Dayton sounded as if he'd gotten off to a bad start with Chris.
"Geoff wants you home. He told me so, himself. He wants you come home." Max told him.
"Home? The farmhouse?" Dayton sounded as if he didn't know where that was.
"If you want to come here first, I can go with you if you want."
"I want Oliver." Dayton then said. "I want to see Oliver."
"Well, I guess I could do that, but what on earth for?" Max squinted as he watched Chris now with Chloe. He was rocking her in their favorite chair. She was taking a bottle.
"Will you call Geoff?"
"Well..." Dayton didn't have an answer to that.
Max was giving Geoff this number as soon as Dayton hung up. Really, this shouldn't be his nor Chris' problem.
