There Rings a Melody

Jonathan said, «Davie and I are going to have a sleepover. We›ll grab some PJ’s and see you all in the morning.» He picked Davie up, tipped him down to kiss his folks and grandparents goodnight, and out they went to Jonathan’s apartment.

His folks followed suit and climbed the stairs they had climbed together for many years…»Nope, No Megan, I›m not telling you where Ellie hid My Pie»! «My Pie» were the last words that floated down to them…

As they left together Kate said, «I›m betting he gives in.»

«Nope, I›m betting he holds tough,» Luke replied. «I›ll just run out and tell «J» and Davie ‹Goodnight›. Then we›ll take our daughter in ourselves to bed too. Don’t go without me, I›ll carry you and you can carry her, we›ll have a «Family Sleepover»!

Kate looked up at him and grinned, «Aren’t you glad we put these bedrooms on the ground floor – Mr. Macho? Don’t hurry honey, some little girl is hungry, we›ll wait for you right here, for our ride.»

As Luke went down the short bridge-way to J’s apartment his heart was so full of joy, peace, and quiet…

Home Safe!

«Thank You Father» formed on his lips…

Then he stopped short…

He Listened again…

Someone crying…

Sobbing…

What?

Who?
