Sophia picked up the magazine from off the coffee table and shook it, when nothing came out she flung it aside and continued picking up papers and throwing each in turn.
“Whoa there, you never going to find it if you freak out like this, just calm down a little bit.” Phillip bent down to pick up the thrown aside items and ignored the death stare he felt directed towards him.
“I have looked everywhere. I looked through all of these papers calmly the first time. I picked apart this whole house in a very calm matter, it’s obviously time for a new tactic.”
“I’m just saying the trip isn’t until tomorrow, we have eighteen hours to find your passport, stop stressing.”
“Oh, okay because I don’t need sleep.. I will just calmly look through this house again and through the car again and again and again, no problem. I can operate on endless loop, why not?” Sophia walked over to the sofa and let herself drop into a careless lump. She looked defeated but calm so Phillip started to walk over to her. Sophia looked up at him with sadness in her eyes. She let out a big sigh and then proceeded to pick up one of their many throw pillows, she raised it to her face and began to scream into it. Phillip finished crossing over and sat waiting until she finished.
“Do you feel better now?”
“Sophie we will find it, and if we don’t…….”
“No, I can’t miss this trip Phillip! I’ve wanted to go to France my whole damn life and I…….” Sophie voice erupted into sobs that shook her tiny frame. When Phillip started to rub her shoulders, she didn’t protest. He bent his head and kissed the back of her neck.
“We will find it.”
“No buts, we will find it,” he placed his fingers under her chin and raised her face up to him. He looked into her green eyes, still swimming with tears,and smiled, “We will find it.”
Sophia gave him a small smile in return and dried her eyes with her hand before using one of her sleeves to dry her nose, “Okay. Phillip?”
“I’m sorry, I know I can be really witchy sometimes.”
Phillip smiled at the thought that crossed his mind but said,”No worries my Sophie, you know I love you. Now lets sort this house out okay?”
