I’ll have to move his hand to get at it. Luke churns a bit in his sleep. I scooch down beside him, doing my best to clear away enough room on the floor and be quiet at the same time. His snoring has caused his T-shirt to draw up and expose about an inch and a half of hairy belly. The blub stares me in the face, as does one bright, cherry-red nipple peeping through a dryer-eaten hole. If only his kitchen appliance—buying customers knew what he wears under all that Sears polyester. I reach out for his wrist and he lets out a cartoon-like snore, flops his head to the other side.
I wonder if she can even see straight. “Harder,” I demand. ” It takes her a few times to actually make me bleed. And when she finally does, it’s a pretty decent line, about an inch and a half. It doesn’t even hurt, just feels like I scratched myself on something sharp. I guess I can’t expect too much from a thumb-sucking eleven-year-old. The blood fills the slit and I wait to see if it’ll drip. I move my arm a bit to guide a trickle, but it just stays put. I’m tempted to squeeze it, but when I glance up at Sadie, she looks like she’s gonna hurl.
I take a deep breath to calm myself down, trying to piece together what’s really going on here. I mean, there’s a good chance that Kelly won’t even care. Maybe she won’t even find out. And even if she does, I can just say Sean looked like he was gonna pass out from the heat. I guess he sort of does. ” He twiddles with the strap of his belt for several moments. ” His hand is on the zipper of his long khaki shorts. I grab the raft for security and begin paddling in a circle. But before I know it, I’m facing him again.
