This is for @ohbelieveyoume, you’re such a good mom!
I thought you could take care of Rafi too!
I hope you and your little one feel better soon!
It had been a busy morning at work, but you were finally done. Thanking your lucky stars that it was a half day, you walked out of the office. Taking your phone out of your bag, you looked down at the notifications; 5 missed calls from Carmen! You panicked and almost dropped your phone.
Why was Carmen calling you repeatedly?
With shaking hands, you hit the “call back” button and waited anxiously for an answer.
“ADA Barba’s office, Carmen speaking, how may I help you?”
“Oh thank God, you need to come down here right now!” Carmen sounded relieved to hear your voice, not worried, not that this abated your fears.
“Why? What…Is Rafael okay?”
“Right now, it’s not him I’m worried about!”
“What is that supposed to mean?”
“Have you seen him today?”
“It would be great if you could come and take him home.”
“Carmen, do you think you could be a little bit more specific about what is going on?”
“Your boyfriend is sick and is terrorizing everyone in the office. Specific enough for you? He is yelling at the interns, he made one of them cry! The paralegals are nowhere to be seen. And if I catch whatever he has, I’m holding you personally responsible. Now could you please come and deal with this?” Carmen said all of this in a fierce whisper.
“I’ll be there as soon as I can.”
