Every assignment was more difficult than the last. It was hard to separate the familial feelings I shared with my charges versus the orders that I received.
Now, they’ve sent me to collect another and “no” is not an option.
Of course, my brother knew I was coming. I found him at his desk, patiently awaiting my arrival. I have long dreaded the day I would be face to face with him.
If he didn’t go quietly, there would be mayhem; not only here but in the upper echelons of heaven. Lucky for me, I’m the rowdy type.
