Continued from here.
Sandy went to the bathroom and freshened up. As she reapplied her makeup, she thought about her children getting ready for bed. She hoped her husband was handling the girls okay. Maddie always put up a fight before getting into her pajamas. Her husband had been finding himself the go-to parent now that Sandy had been taking more frequent business trips. Always when she returned, he had another horror story of some trouble that the three of them barely avoided. He played it off like it was no big deal, but that was just to ease her guilt about leaving them so often.
“Dor– uh, mom!” Sandy called down the hall. “Do you have a phone I could use?”
“Sorry, dear. Our phone isn’t working.”
Sandy tried to calm herself. Her husband would probably be assuming that she was held up somewhere, but he was always so calm in these situations. He probably wasn’t even trying to get into contact with her. How could he if he didn’t know where she was?
