Dill and Jane sat on the hood of the car. A frown was stitched to Jane's face. She knew she hated something about this car. Zeb was pacing back and forth with a phone pressed against his ear. The boring hold music played in his ear.
Dill was playing with a flower she found on the side of the road. She had her arms in the air while twirling the plant. Then the flower fell beside her face as her limbs dropped. Her head curved a bit and her eyelids drooped. Jane sighed and was relieved that Dill was lying down. She straightened up Dill’s head and placed the flower in her hand.
Jane pressed her hand against Dill's head and felt tremendous heat. Even though the planet was orbiting a red dwarf, the heat could still be intense. She went inside the car and pulled out a water bottle. By the time she exited the car, the seizure was over. Jane smiled and handed her the bottle. Jane scooted back on the car hood and helped the little girl sit up properly.
