"I hear you and Jake are going to spend the night on the beach," said Izumi, propping up

some pillows for support.

"News travels fast," Abby observed glumly. "It’s no big deal, Mom."

"I think it was sweet of Jake to think of it," smiled the mother.

"I suppose it was," shrugged Abby. "I don’t know why we’re doing it, though. Jake is

acting like…" the young woman hesitated, "like a little boy who just found out it’s not

raining, and now he can go outside and play."

"He didn’t have much of a childhood," reminded her mother.

"That might explain it," sighed Abby. "I have to get running,

“That might explain it,” sighed Abby. “I have to get running, Mom, or Mr. Winkler’s

going to call,” she announced, getting up from the bed.

“Abby?” called Izumi, as her daughter was about to leave. “How does the mural in the

triplets’ room look? I’ve asked John to take a picture of it, but they all want me to wait

As Abby got into her jeep, Jake waved to her from across the way.

“Don’t forget!” he called to her.

Dennis looked up and smiled as the young woman entered the tackle store, ready for

work.

“You’ve got a busy day ahead of you,” he warned Abby. “Mr. York is scheduled for

three-thirty, and he insisted on you as his instructor.”

“But, he was here, yesterday,” sighed Abby. “That man can talk a blue streak about fly

fishing! What’s worse, I get caught up in it! Dennis, would you do me a favor?”

“Sure,” he shrugged. “What is it?”

“I promised Jake to be home on time, today,” she explained. “If I get involved in another

conservation with Mr. York, would you remind me of the time?”
