"Where again are you going?" Ted asked.

"Los Angeles, I already told you." Bill answered.

"But who are you visiting?" Ted asked again.

"Ted, Iíve told you, Iím not gonna tell you until I get back." Bill explained.

"Dude, Iím so gonna be bored without you." Ted said.

"Not if youíre with Elizabeth," Bill said.

Ted blushed sheepishly and changed the subject, "When are you getting back?" he asked.

"Saturday." Bill answered.

"Three days! Bogus!" Ted replied.

"Iíll be fine, Ted." Bill assured him.

"I know I youíll be, Dude." Ted said and paused with an odd look on his face "You arenít visiting Granny S. Preston Esq. are you?" Ted asked.

"Most definitely not." Bill answered.

"Well, Iím gonna miss you, dude." Ted said.

"Iíll miss you, too." Bill said.

"Bill, come on we gotta go!" Billís dad said as he started the car.

"Okay," He said, grabbed his guitar and his bag, and headed off to LA.

He knocked on the door off a small, red, brick house.

"Oh, Hi Bill. Come on in." a short blonde woman with a high voice, greeted as she opened the door.

"Hey mom." Bill said.

"Itís so great to see you!" she said and gave him a hug.

"Itís great to see you, too, mom." He said.

"Come on, I gotta show you around." She said as she pulled him into a room, "This is the living room," She said and he looked around the room filled with scattered plants and furniture, "Yeah, itís definitely not done yet, but Iím gonna finish it up soon." She explained and pulled him into a different room, "This," She paused, "Iím not sure what this is yet, but Iíll figure out soon." She explained about the small empty room.

"This is a very small room." Bill noted.

"Yes it is, Billy." She said and walked into obviously the kitchen, "Here is the kitchen." She said and walked into the hallway again, went up the steps, tapped on one of the doors, "This is the bathroom." She said and walked down the hall again peeking over her shoulder once or twice to make sure he was following her, "This can be your room." She said opening a door to a room that had been painted dark blue.

"WhoaÖ" He said walking in to the small blue room with a twin-sized bed and closet three-feet wide.

"So, I guess thatís everything." She said smiling.

"Itís most excellent." He said.

"Iím glad you like it.  Do you wanna get your bag now?" She asked.

"Most definitelyÖ" He said as they walked down the steps and got his guitar and his bag.

"You still play the guitarÖ" She said smiling.

"Yeah," he replied.

"I remember when you first learned how to play." She said.

"Back when you and dad were still together." He noted and she sat there in silence for a few moments.

"You know, itís not your fault we broke up." She said.

"Of course I know that." Bill said sitting down at the bed.

"It was our own problems, not anything you did." She explained and sat next to him.

"Mom, I already knew that." He said.

"Just making sure you knew." She paused and changed the subject, "How long does it take you to get here?" She asked.

"Around thirty minutes." He answered.

"Thatís not very long, and itís a good thing I had you wait to come until I moved in." She said.

"So you didnít have a boyfriend?" He asked.

"Well, I did, but I wanted to surprise you about the house." She explained.

"Do you still have a boyfriend?" He asked.

"No, He dumped me." She said.

"Oh," he said.

"Are you hungry?" She asked.

"At nine?" He asked.

"Yeah, I didnít have dinner." She said.

"I actually already ate.  Can I go to sleep now?" He asked.

"Sure," She said with a smile.

She gave him a kiss on the forehead and right before leaving she said "Goodnight." and shut the door.

Thursday 10:23 A.M.

Bill woke up and went down the steps.

"Good morning, Bill." She said.

"Morning, mom." He said.

"Are you hungry?" She asked.

"Yeah, a little." He answered.

"What do you want to ea-" She said cut off because of the phone ringing, "Hold on one second." She said and he sat down.

"Hello?" She answered the phone, "Yes this is she," she said and her normal face turned into a face of shock, "Oh my god!  Is she alright?" she exclaimed.

Bill knew something was completely wrong, "Iíll be there as soon as I can." She said and hung the phone up. "Bill, Iím so sorry.  Something terrible just happened and I have to go out of town.  I need you to call your father and have him come pick you up.

"What just happened?" He asked.

"Everything will be fine, I just need you to call your father and get him to come get you." She said.

"Okay." He said before picking up the phone.

"Hello?" his dad answered.

"Dad, there was an emergency and I need you to come get me." Bill explained.

"Is your mother alright?" He asked.

"Sheís alright, dad, but something just happened. Iím not exactly sure." Bill explained.

"Okay, Iíll be there as soon as I can, Bill." His dad assured him and hung up.

He made sure he got his stuff to leave and waited by the front door until his dad knocked.

He opened the door, "Hey dad," He greeted.

"Hey Bill." His dad greeted and paused looking up at the steps where his mom was going to leave, "Hello Elaine." He said as he stared at her the way Bill stared at Missy.

"Hi Eugene." She said as she grabbed her purse and started to leave.

"Catch ya later, mom." Bill said.

"Bye Bill." His mom said and gave him a hug, "Iíll try to see if you can come back sometime soon." She said.

"Okay," He said and he and his dad left to San Dimas.

"Hello? Ted said answering his phone.

"Hey Dude." Bill said.

"Oh, Hey Bill! Howís it going in the mystery place you are at right now?" Ted asked.

"Well, I am back at my house now." Bill said.

"I thought you were gonna be gone for three days." Ted said.

"Well, something came up and I had to come back." Bill explained.

"So, where were you?" Ted asked.

"At my momís house." Bill explained.

"Really?" Ted asked.

"Yep." Bill answered.

"Whyíd you have to come back?" Ted asked.

"I donít know exactly.  How was your day?" Bill asked.

"Pretty resplendent actually." Ted answered.

"Really?  I wanna hear what happenedÖ" Bill said.
