the school called and said emma was sick and needed me to come get her.
i threw reese in the van and headed straight over.
still new to all this public school stuff i wasn't sure the proper procedure...

i went to the office.
the secretary wasn't there. so i stood, waiting.

two boys, obviously serving detention at a table not far away looked curiously at us.
i got the feeling they wanted to ask me to bust them out! ;)

after a few more minutes of awkward glances between us and the detention boys i decided to forget about the rule of not going anywhere in the school without a supervised person and grabbed reese's hand and headed down the hall.

i rounded the corner to her class.
she was standing there. just outside the door. snow pants and coat on.
her hat pulled down to the top of her eyebrows.
a little bundle of padded up fluff. it made me smile.
she spotted me about then and smiled back.
but as soon as i was close enough i saw the big tears ready to fall in spite of the smile.

i dropped down on one knee and hugged her.
"oh, sweetie.. are you feeling so sick?"
sure that was the reason for the tears.

she shook her head and wiped at her eyes with the back of her hand.
saying quietly as her voice cracked over the words.
"no. i.. was.. j..just.. so.. g..lad.. to.. see.. you."

and i hugged her tight and thought, this.. this is what makes it all worth it!
