"You could fix it?" Nora wanted Smed to look at her laptop when he got there.
"I'll take a look." Smed thought it was the least he could do. The laptop had a virus and was not too happy about that. He felt a little weird going into her bedroom. "Can I take it to the livingroom?"
"Oh, sure." She was laid back and in her sweats. June took Megan to the guestroom. It was a charming house. Little details of painted flowers above the kitchen entrance. And the guestroom was in the shade of melon and purple. Megan told him he just had to check it out.
But Smed was a bit nervous. He didn't know if could fix her laptop or not. It wasn't as bad as she thought. She told him it was locked up, but it really wasn't. He took a few steps he knew in the control panel and found something to clean up the virus. Soon her laptop was as good as new.
"I think we should keep him." Nora went to tell June.
"Don't talk about him like he's a dog, Babe." June gave her a slight scowl. But she grinned then and shook her head when she looked at Smed. "Can I get you anything?"
"Water." He was thirsty, but he didn't want to wear out his welcome.
"I just love what you guys have done with the place." Megan was all smiles. She was already drinking Sangria. Smed just looked at her wondering if they knew she wasn't 21. "Oh, come on, have one." She handed him a big round glass of the tastey burgandy drink.
It warmed him up right away even if it were so cold. It was sweet and went straight to his head. Of course, he hadn't eaten anything since breakfast. It was already going on 10 at night.
"We have hummus." June then brought in dips and chips.
"Great." Smed suddenly felt his smile was plastered on his face.
"See, I told you we'd be all right." Megan nudged him then and laugter fell all around her. He hadn't a clue what was so funny, but he laughed too.
