It had been a few days since the last time she had seen Jack, the smile on his face had been so proud when she had told him all about how PaPa was bragging about knowing the Great Jack Kelly, Newsies Strike Leader. Sarah had begun to worry and David wasn't seeming to tell her anythin right now. She sat in the rocking chair in the corner of the apartment, a basket of laundry at her feet as she folded shirts and towels and blankets. She hummed a soft tune to herself but her head popped up when the door swung open and an infuriated Davey barged in with little Les tagging at his feet. Sarah put the blanket she was folding back into the laundry basket as she got to her feet and walked over to her brother that now stood by the window.
"Davey? Whats wrong... I haven't seen you this upset in quite some time," she asked her brother, her tone its usual soft spoken words as she placed her hand on David's shoulder but he immediately shrugged it off and pulled away from her in his frustration."How could he? He started this whole mess to begin with what is wrong with him?" David was muttering as he now began to pace. Sarah discretely folded her arms over her chest as she watched him pace, her eyes holding slight worry, but she had to question his words,"David, talk to me, how could who do what?" she asked, she had the worst feeling in the pit of her stomach that Jack had done something wrong.
"Your knight in shining armor isn't so heroic any more Sarah," Davey said as his eyes fell on his sister. She looked so confused and now as he mentioned Jack, she looked almost heartbroken at the fact her brother was so upset with the man she was slowly falling for. Sarah looked down at her feet and allowed her hair to fall with this movement as she scuffed her foot against the ground,"What has Jack done Davey?" she asked afraid of knowing the answer. "He betrayed the newsies Sarah, he turned to the Scabs and became one... I don't understand it," he was seething and at this point, Sarah unfolded her arms from her chest and walked into the small kitchen.
She pulled a glass from the cabinet and walked to the sink filling it with water before she brought it to Davey and she took him by the arm and led him to his bed, gently urging him to sit down. He took the glass from her and almost fought the sitting but he saw the hurt in her eyes so he just slowly began to calm down. "Maybe you don't know the full story Davey... maybe he was bribed into it? Maybe he was told he would end up doing more time in the refuge, I mean i know he can escape situations, but maybe this time... things just weren't that way," she told her brother, her words holding the utmost confidence in her reasonings, Jack wouldn't just betray the newsies for anything, he had to have good reasoning behind it, she knew it. She looked over seeing Les passed out in his bed and she walked over to him, tucking the blankets around him and kissing his forehead before she looked over her shoulder at David,"You should get some rest... you look exhausted, I'm sure everything will fall into place, just sleep for now Davey alright?" she told him as she walked over to him and gave him a hug before turning and going back to the chair in the corner where she sat back down and continued folding the laundry, her mind now deep in thought about Jack and if he was going to be ok.[/center]
