Julie wished she could see him before they left as well, but resigned herself to the fact that it might not happen. She stood up and headed back to her desk to set a good example, and just when she thought she was right about not seeing Tom before the end of the day, the front door burst open and Tom and Brett came inside, chattering, laughing and excited.
Doni, who was even more excited to see Tom than normal, ran over to him and starting jumping up and down. Tom looked down to see her and started jumping up and down with her. She laughed at the sight and Tom laughed at himself. Brett just watched and smiled. He thought about jumping up and down, then thought better and about his sensitive lower back. He just knew it would go out and ruin the moment. But it was difficult for him to hide his excitement. It had been a great day. A better day than he had had in a long time. He was beginning to see more of what Tom had been trying to teach them and his inner child screamed with delight.
