"That should not excuse the first nurse bad behavior."
"Get some rest," the nurse said.
Brice nodded off to sleep waking up later to Jace standing over him with unlit cigar.
"I didn't find out where you were until today," said Uncle Jace, "I told you to get the folding chair and a pack of bar soap. I had only two things on my list."
"I was doing it," Brice said. Then Nachine came and bashed me in the head. The store manager claimed something fell on my head."
Uncle Jace sat down and pulled the seat close to Brice's bed. "Maybe it was the hit and the bad dreams you're been having. Nachine hadn't hit you, a box that fell on your head."
Jace was the kind if he wasn't there he wouldn't believe what you telling him, Brice thought. "When can I get out of here."
"How you knew I ask?"
"Today, but someone has to watch you for 24 hours. I lie that I could do it. The problem is one of my managers are out sick and I'm doing double duty."
"I can get somebody," Brice said.
"Not Yasmine she quit me to work inside Cody High School."
"You could hire a guy from the neighborhood do a day shift and Yasmine do the night shift."
"No, because colored people don't show up on time and I'll end up opening the store late, losing a profit," Uncle Jace said walking over to the patient closet. Then he tossed Brice's clothes on his bed.. "It's blood on these clothes. Did you have to get stitches?"
"Doctor told me about three."
"Do you know what was in the box?" Uncle Jace asked.
"No," Brice said. Sometimes Uncle Jace could be annoying fool.
"Your mother can take care of you the next few days and that's where I am dropping you."
"I'm not complaining I want to get out this place," Brice raised up from the bed scooted out the bed holding his head. After dressing himself, he rode with his uncle to his father's house. "Man they probably towed my car. It sat there over night."
"Brice give me your keys. I'll have one of my manager come with me to drop your car at your home." Brice slid him his keys.
