[Maggie is looking for a laptop at a friend’s house while friend is asleep upstairs; four-year old daughter is watching a movie on sofa. House is too messy to find laptop.]
She heard footprints on the ancient wood floor upstairs. The toilet flushed then she heard the stairs creak. He changed his mind, he was going to help! She smiled. She looked across the room toward the stairs.
A young woman walked down wearing nothing but a frown. Then another followed her with the same birthday suit, same frown. They stopped midway. Twins, just great. Tony was living every man’s dream two women at a time.
Maggie moved behind the couch and stepped to the bottom of the stairs. She didn’t know where to look so she turned sideways to look out the front door. She checked Jessica’s view but two naked women had nothing on Disney.
“What do you want?” the first twin asked.
“Tony has a computer of mine. I need it back now.”
“Tony won’t be up for hours, you need to leave,” the second twin said.
“What happened to your hair?” the first twin asked.
Maggie walked to the mirror outside the bathroom under the stairs. Oh shoot! Her beautiful strawberry blonde hair with a slight curl that took a long time to achieve in the bathroom that morning now looked like she just went through electric shock in a Saturday morning cartoon. Her frizzy hair stood out in all directions and layers. She tried to push it back in place but that didn’t work. It was bad enough to have her hair in a car-heater dried mess but the beautiful twins who just rolled out of bed pointed it out.
