"Okay mom...so the door was replaced," said Harry, and before Mrs. Kane could even gasp he blurted out the rest," but I checked and I think some of the wiring might still be damaged because..."
"...you can't replace the wiring in that short a time," finished Mrs. Kane, her expression changing instantly. She quickly got up, disentangling herself from the two of them.
"Where are you going? Are you seriously going to check it tonight?" asked Harry.
"Not me, but someone will be checking it tonight," she said, giving them all a beaming smile," we put things off the last time the door vulnerable and it didn't end well, that's not going to happen this time."
"But like right this second?" asked Aria.
"Yes...there are plenty of people who are out and about at this time. Trust me. I'll make it happen. Now you two have had a long day. Get some sleep because you'll have to do it all over again tomorrow. I won't be back for quite some time," she ordered and turned to leave.
"But Mom?" asked Harry.
"Yes Harry," she replied, turning around.
"Don't you need your rest too?" he asked.
"I, unlike you two, don't have work the entire day tomorrow, so I have some leeway. Now please get some sleep. Goodnight! Sweet dreams!"
"Good Luck on whatever you're going to do Mom," called out Harry, as Mrs. Kane walked off, walking with fast purposeful strides.
"Well that actually went as we predicted it would," said Harry, turning to Aria," I can't believe it."
"Yeah," said Aria," that's definitely the biggest surprise for today."
"Hmm...so you want to go to sleep sis?" asked Harry.
"Did I just hear Harris Kane say that he wants to go to sleep?" she asked," the world really is changing these days."
"Hey, I'm allowed to occasionally be responsible you know," said Harry, pouting.
"I think tomorrow is going to be another day where I wake up to find you already ready to go," said Aria.
"And why would that be?" said Harry.
"Because you can never get to sleep when you're excited about something like this," she said, getting up.
"Unfortunately, you're correct," said Harry," okay correction, let's try to get to sleep and fail miserably."
"That's more like it," said Aria with a smile. She began heading off for her room," Good Night!"
"Night, sis. Sweet dreams," said Harry, turning to leave before stopping at the door to his room.
"Wait a minute, I forgot something," he called and ran towards Aria.
"And what's that?" asked Aria, turning just in time for Harry to engulf her in a hug. She returned the hug and pressed a kiss to his forehead.
"Good night again," she whispered.
"Good night," said Harry and this time he made it all the way to his bed where he proceeded to change as fast as he could before he climbed onto the cold steel and lay down. He closed his eyes, hoping sleep would eventually come his way.
True to Aria's prediction, Harry had a tough time getting to sleep that night. Lying in bed and willing himself to sleep was not proving to be a very effective strategy. He tossed and turned, the hard metal underneath not exactly helping matters by making it impossible for him to get comfortable.
