Ray had shut off the television and the video games. He'd brought the girls into the living room. They knew something was up, and the looks between them nearly broke Ray's heart. he was in for a long night, once he and Greg told the girls the news. It wasn't going to be easy, and they weren't going to take it well, but it had to be done. The girls needed to know,a nd they deserved to be told before they found out on the message boards.
"Daddy? What's wrong?" Sofia asked. Reina had hold of her hand. They definitely knew something was wrong. Ray reached for Sofia's hand, and Greg's, leaving Greg to take Reina's free hand. He had a vague notion of how corny it was, but their family was effectively reduced to just the four of them now, and they needed to stick together. Ray glanced at Greg, though he knew Greg was leaving it up to him to explain, because Greg wouldn't have the words to say what needed to be said.
