Violet continued to stroke his hair as he fell asleep against her.
meanwhile Debra moved to sit down next to Alice and introduce her to the baby. Alice continued to pretend to be disinterested until then.
Reaching out to touch her face. “She’s soft,” she pointed out and Debra smiled.
“Do you want to hold her?”
Alice shook her head. “I’ll just drop her.”
”Okay. Maybe sometime later then,” she said. “You ready to go home?”
”Yeah. I’m tired,” she said as she yawned at the thought of it.
”Okay,” Debra said as Tonka started to fuss being hungry. She got up and passed the infant off to Violet as she adjusted Seth so she could do so. Giving Violet a quick neck hug and a kiss on the side of her head. “Congrats,” she said.
”See you later,” she said.
"And her daddy," she added giving him another brief kiss.
Finally Debra snuck in. "Can I hold her," she asked Richie who nodded.
"Gotta call Granna Clover and tell her to come see my sister," he said.
Debra took the baby as she smiled to the boy. "Thank you."
"Is she as pretty as your wife?" she asked him with a smirk before she put her fingers to her lips and whistled to get Seth and Alice's attention so they would come over. "You have a new little sister Seth," she said as she moved to get up so they could walk inside to go see Violet and the new baby.
Debra slid her hands down her jeans and into her pocket. "Fuck," she said. "And you said she's having contractions? Fuck," she didn't need him to repeat himself. She shook her head and went to the desk. "I need to go back and see my daughter. Right now," she demanded slapping her hand on the counter.
"I'll see you there soon," she said to him nodding even though he couldn't see it. She hung up the phone and backed out of the spot to head to the hospital. She got there around the same time that Red did.
"What the fuck happened?"
Debra was in her car, she had dropped of Derek and Damian off already and was starting to get concerned that Alice had done something with Seth to prevent Violet from getting to the school when her car phone rang. She picked it up. "Violet? Where in the hell are you?"
