The next morning, Tom and Julie pulled into the parking lot at the same time, even though they were in separate cars. Tom quickly jumped out of his car and walked slowly to the partially opened door. He pushed it opened and turned on the light. Julie came up behind him. What should have been a wonderful morning quickly turned into a nightmare. Tom stared in to the office littered with papers and half opened file drawers.
“Tom?” Julie said.
Tom just stared at the mess inside of the office. He flashed back to the workshop when he mentioned the crayon fairy, and knew that this was not her work. His first thought was that Corbet had something to do with this.
Tom took a few steps into the office area, followed quickly by Doni who said, “What a mess!”
Julie pulled her back and held her close. “Shhh. Not now sweetie.”
Tom walked quickly back to his office and turned on the light. Julie looked worried as she heard rustling sounds and things being thrown about the office.
Julie walked into the main room and started picking up files.
“Can I help, mommy?” Doni asked.
“Sure sweetie. If you want to pick up folders, carefully and put them on mommy’s desk, that would be great.”
Doni was quiet for a moment and then asked, “Is this a bad thing?”
“Yes sweetie. This is a very bad thing?”
