[visiting the hospital]
Who: Sam, Cris, Louis, Daniel, Iris
What: Visiting the hospital.
Where: Hospital in the Capital
When: A couple days after Joey's birth.
The evening was cool as Louis parked the car and unloaded his two passengers, beelining for the door of the hospital. He wore his winter coat, though at fifty degrees he hardly needed it.
He hadn't thought much about what to wear before leaving the house tonight. He had been thinking about the baby, about Sam, about packing up the few small things he'd bought for his new niece, about where he would pick up food for Sam, about the long car ride with Daniel and Iris. He was nervous. There was a thick knot in the pit of his stomach, not all bad, but tangled in his worry about Sam and his conversation with Cris, and it was all sort of a mess. Exciting, and in parts happy, but complicated, and when were things simple?
He carried the bag with the few cheerily wrapped presents and card in one hand, and a bag from a local grocery store stocked with food for the man who'd been eating steamed vegetables in the cafeteria for the past few days. He checked to be sure Iris and Daniel were directly behind before he pressed into the lobby, and to the desk.
"I'm here visiting my sister," he told the woman sitting at the computer. "Sam Alexander." He had already texted Cris - hopefully they would be expected.
