Chapter Fifty: Sisters' Plan.
One afternoon, Isabel was jogging on the treadmill under the guidance of her twin.
"That's pretty much what I'm doing, besides looking after three young women who act like babies."
|"Don't mock me!"|
"You act as if you're ten years younger sometimes."
"Yes," Isabel said, her expression still the same.
Attie was shocked. "Okay, why do you think that?" she asked.
"First of all, you fuss too much. Secondly, you hold grudges for much too long and want to deal with things harshly. Even Fran's grudges don't fester into violence."
Her sister's explanation stunned Attie into silence. After a while, the red twin decided to change the subject.
"Have you heard?" said Attie. "The gym is almost done renovating and will have a swimming pool in the back yard. Pool's grand opening is next week."
"It's been some time since we last swam about," said Isabel. "Ever since we moved out of New York City and settled into our own lives here, I haven't thought about swimming. Let's go there on the grand opening."
"Problem is, I won't be there for the grand opening of Willow Creek Pool," Attie joked. "Work and missions on that day."
"We'll wait for you to come back."
"That wouldn't be nice, nor fair to you," Isabel said, running steadily.
