Misty worked for the Mac Kalisters for 4 years taking care of their 3 children. She had a crush on Hank from the first time that she was hired by Catherine. His dark eyes and coal black hair turned her on beyond what she had expected. By one mishap of her trying on something that came for Catherine in the mail created a relationship she had wanted for so long and never expected in her wildest dreams. She was going to make sure that she kept the children and the man happy in an unhappy situation. After all, every single dad needed a helping hand.
The phone rang and Misty picked it up. It was Mr. Mac Kalister on the other end of the line. He was running late due to tax season. He asked her if she could stay longer. The kids ran around her as she tried to concentrate on his words. He would not be home until around 9 pm. Since she had nothing planned for that night she was fine with what he asked. She would do anything for Hank, since the divorce he had been working nonstop and often depended upon her.
Misty moved around the kitchen looking for what to make for dinner. She saw they could make mini pizzas. She would have to go shopping for Hank she could see. He had let the groceries go. Jr, Cathy and Megan danced around her as she pulled out what they would need to make dinner. Misty had Cathy set the oven and Jr pick out a movie for the night. As they worked together to make the pizzas, she could not believe Catherine had left Hank for a younger man. Especially since Hank was such a devoted husband and father.
They ate talking about school and the carnival coming up. Everyone had a part in it. Misty hoped that Hank would be able to make it to the carnival for the kids. They looked up to him so much. She looked at all of them and listened to their chatter. The doorbell rang and Misty went to answer it. It was a package from a local boutique. She signed for it and sat it on the table. It was for Catherine.
Soon they were all watching the movie Jr picked out and halfway through Megan fell asleep on the couch. Misty picked her up and carried her to her bedroom tucking her in. She was an active 8 year old who would often wear herself out and crash around 7 or 8 pm depending upon her activities of the day. Today she had gymnastics and a full day of school. When Misty came back into the living room to finish watching the movie, she saw that only Jr was still there. She was not surprised because he had picked out an action movie only he would like. He looked at her.
“I am going to bed soon.” He said without prompting. “I have wrestling practice in the morning.”
“Who is picking you up?” Misty asked as she began to clean up.
“Joel’s mom.” He answered as the film began to show its credits. He turned off the DVD and left the remote on the table. “Night, I am going to finish my homework and go to bed.”
“Okay.” Misty said as she put the dishes in the washer. “I will see you tomorrow.”
“Same station?” He smiled as he headed up stairs.
“Same channel.” She answered as she became curious about the package that arrived. She went upstairs to check on Cathy who was on her laptop....
