It was probably nothing, Shauna told herself. Children, and especially twelve-year-old girls, often had stomachaches, and Mandy had eaten an awful lot of pizza. It was really no surprise that by the time she’d been put to bed in the cream and blue guest room of Shauna’s high-rise condo she was uncomfortable. Mandy had asked for it, that was for sure — ordering pizza with anchovies, red peppers, and onion, and then topping it off with a double-chocolate milkshake!
Nevertheless, Shauna was a little uneasy. Mandy was her responsibility until their mother came home the next day. I should have told the child to order something a little more sensible, she thought. And if Mandy really is sick — what am I going to do about that? And how will I explain it to Mother?
