Chapter 281 Time Out.

  • Brian is left with a lot of questions and a screaming baby in the back seat of the car. He drives home trying to calm the child down. As his nerves take the best of him. He takes a deep breath as he parks in his driveway, getting out and picking up his son, who he now calmed down. He takes him in giving him a bottle and putting him down for a nap. Needing some peace and quiet for himself just to get his mind back together.
  • After he does, he sees that Elizabeth isn’t home yet. He knows she had to stop off somewhere otherwise she would be. He knew telling her would upset her, just not like this. She didn’t take that at all as he thought. He also noticed she didn’t act like she normally did. She would get upset but never like this, never walking away and leaving him and their son. He knew she was getting to her breaking point as well. He just knew he had to tell her what he did before the investor did. That would have made this ten times worse. Plus they were always able to talk about things. It just seemed like this subject got to her more then he thought it would have.
  • He just sits down on the sofa and hopes she cools down and comes home soon. Feeling maybe the little bit of space would do them good.
  • Elizabeth stops at a local cafe, just needing air and space. She just takes a seat outside the cafe drinking her decaf iced coffee, needing to settle her nerves, that are now totally unhinged. Just the more, she would think about things the more heated she would become.
  • Brian: 5:04 Babe, where are you? Are you OK?
  • Elizabeth just reads the text, not wanting to answer him at the same time knowing she should.
