“Wait. What? Why? Where?” Steve’s eyes were huge as he looked up at Danny standing by the bed. It was an odd occurrence, that Danny would be up and ready while Steve was still abed.

“I’m going to Save-A-Lot for your prescription ointment. You know, the one the doctor prescribed after Mr. Hoppy bit you,” Danny said, trying unsuccessfully to tame Steve’s outraged bedhead.

“Bunny blundered by biting. Mistake made mirthfully,” Steve said, frowning.

“I know he didn’t mean to do it, Babe,” Danny assured him. “I’m not mad at him or you. Or Grace. But I need to get your ointment or there’s no telling what might happen.

“Boo boo,” Steve said, holding up his finger so Danny could see the white gauze covering the angry red tooth marks.

“I know, Babe. Does it hurt?”

“Kissing commonly considered curative.”

“Okay,” Danny agreed, carefully kissing Steve’s finger. “You stay in bed like a good boy. Grace will be up with your breakfast in a few minutes. I’ve told her to play charades with you if you run out of things to say.”

“Pantomime particularly painful,” Steve complained.

“Pretend you’re a mime. I’ll get you some whiteface and a stripped shirt at the drugstore,” Danny teased.

“Har har har - have hearty hatred.”

“No you don’t. You’re just cranky because you have an alien infection. I’m not the one who bit you,” Danny reminded him.

“Steve’s sorry,” Steve sighed. “Be back before boredom beckons?”

“I’ll try. But I can’t get back if you don’t let me leave.”

“Bye bye,” Steve said, watching until he had disappeared into the hallway. Fortunately it didn’t take long for Grace to appear with Steve’s breakfast. Danny had cooked it, leaving it to Grace to bring it upstairs. “Hello honey. Howzit?”

“I have your breakfast,” Grace said, carefully placing the tray on Steve’s lap. “Can I sit with you?”

“Please provide precious presence. Missed my Monkey midst much moving,” Steve said, kissing her on the head.

“I’m really sorry Mr. Hoppy bit you,” Grace said.

“Ehh…He harbored happy habits. Biting basically broke bunny.”

“He’ll be okay,” Grace assured Steve. “He asked me to tell you ‘Steve’s super swell. Hoping he’ll heal hastily.’”

“Finger fixed fast,” Steve said, frowning. “Alliterations aren’t always articulate.”

“It’s okay. I know what you mean,” she assured him, reaching over for her iPad.

“What?” Steve asked, waving at it.

“I’m writing to my pen pal in Paris. She said she read about you and Danno in the paper.”

“Oh. Danno didn’t demonstrate discernment during destination. Did daughter discuss development?”

“I didn’t tell him. I thought you already knew,” she said with a shrug.

“Pen pal possibly provide pertinent Parisian paper?”

“I’ll ask her,” Grace agree. She typed on her iPad as Steve ate. He didn’t enjoy breakfast, having a craving for bananas, butter, and baklava. At least Danny had made him plenty of bacon, something Steve generally didn’t eat. “Here it is.” Steve accepted her iPad, frowning forcefully at what he saw.

Thank you!!! It's lucky I've limited them to 500 words each or I might not have been able to write so many. Sometimes restraints are good?

I guess it would make as much sense backwards as it does forward. Which is to say - not much sense at all!!!
