Lye spent most of the afternoon putting the story together. All he wants now is a nap.
“Why? For how long? Why?” Shou demands.
“A day or two. Until they’re sure she isn’t a danger to herself or others.”
“She isn’t dangerous! That’s crazy!”
Lye massages his temples. “She assaulted an orderly and tried to dig her way out of a mental hospital. Sounds dangerous and crazy to me.”
“It isn’t fair!”
“Fair!” Lye throws up his hands. “Nothing is ever fair! The sooner you learn that, the happier you’ll be.”
Shou shakes his head then, without a word, leaves.
