Megan wondered where Sammi was. She wasn't in her room the next morning. She hated to be alarmed about it, but before she could mention it to anyone, she saw Sammi sneaking in.
"Where have you been?" She felt like giving her the third degree.
"No where." She looked kind of out of it. Her hair was messy. "A run. I went for a run."
But those weren't running shoes she had on. It wasn't even comfortable track shoes she had on, either. More like cushie flip-flops
"Is there something you want to tell me?" Megan looked her over. She couldn't imagine who Sammi would be with. So she let Sammi go, get ready for school.
Soon enough, she found Caitlin in the kitchen with her oatmeal.
"Sammi's been out." Megan felt someone needed to know.
"Maybe she was with that new guy Alex or ..Logan." Caitlin shrugged as if that would simplify things, but Megan knew Sammi didn't like simple.
"I hope she knows what she's doing." Megan didn't want to worry, but she found herself thinking of Sammi.
"Well, she's back. There is only so much we can do." Caitlin reminded Megan that it was her life, and they couldn't run it for her.
Megan nodded as she went to make her tea and some for Smed too. He was still snoozing in bed.
