It had been two days since Danny had seen his sister, and he really thought that she had left took a cab back to their house, and left him stranded. Trooper, and him were still on silent terms. Nana, had told not to worry about it but they should talk it out. Danny was starting to like Nana, and Rosa the cook she was italian who knew good english a plump woman with a beautiful face. She looked about fifty and Nana looked about sixty two. He would never ask them ofcourse, it was rude.
Jerry, and him had a few conversations they were short and sweet and went no where. Pretty soon they went off in different directions and did their own thing. Danny felt secluded to the house, even though it was big he had nothing to do. His iPOD was dead still his father did not believe in having computers just good ol' tv and fishing was his way of life.
"Rosa said... Rosa said dinners done." Trooper said as he stood there in the door way.
"Okay, thanks." Danny answered getting up off the bed and walking over to the door. He was wearing black swim trunks and a white shirt. His dad didn't have a pool but he had a lake and he thought he might as well get a tan.
Trooper started walking down the steps when Danny slipped on the wooden stair case, already feeling a bruise on his ribs.
"DAMMIT." Danny said loudly as he got up from his position on the hard wooden stairs.
Trooper busted out laughing as he trotted down the stairs now. "Told you." Is all he said as he joined Rosa in the kitchen.
"That little bitch." Danny whispered as he saw Trooper's work of lotion on the ground.
Danny went back in his room to look in the mirror. Sure enough green and purple splotches appeared on his side, on the rib cage just below his armpit.
"Dammit, shit. That hurt like hell." He could smell the aroma of garlic and herbs and he knew it must be spaghetti. He was hungry, but in pain. So instead of just going down stairs he took his Anbesol bottle, and put it in his pocket as he smiled now picking up the lotion before he escaped down the stairs.
"Oh, there you are Mr. Daniel." Rosa said smiling putting his plate on the dining room table.
"Sorry, I was a little busy. Thanks Rosa. Where's uh Nana at?"
"She went home, i'm leaving to in just one moment. If your sister decides to join you dinner's in the pot on the stove. Ay.. it's six I must go. Ciao, see you tomorrow."
"Bye Rosa." Trooper and Danny said in harmony.
Trooper went to the bathroom, when Danny spread some Anbesol on the tip of the cup. Already, ready to see what happened next.
When Trooper got back he saw the smirk on Danny's face, and he grew suspicious.
"What'd you do to my food?"
"Nothing." Danny answered.
"There's more where that came from Daniel Ray, don't mess with me." He said as he took a sip. All was quiet til he started to feel his lips. Then he started looking around out of paranoia, smelling his drink and then his fork. He pushed his plate back now wide eyed.
"What... you... my lips!" Is all he could mumble out as he pushed his chair back and went to the sink to wash his mouth.
"There's more where that came from, little brother, don't mess with me." Is all Danny said as he put his plate in the sink and disappeared up the steps.
"DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANIEL RAY, it's on!" Trooper mumbled out but in a scream.
