"What's wrong?" Jed exclaimed.

"Nothing!" the trio responded.

Jed looked at the three children, "Are you sure?"

Ariel recovered first, "Yeah... um... you just... a... you just scared us, that's all... um... Sir."

Jed looked at them with a gleam of suspicion. Ariel called him Sir... They were up to something, Jed was sure of it. However, that was the least of his worries at the moment, "All right, listen your mom's kinda upset at the moment, I think the movie was a little much for her. I'm going to take her for a walk and calm her down."

Jason looked at the President with concern, "Is she crying?"

"A little, yes." Jed answered.

Brennan spoke up, "Watch out that she doesn't get sick on you."

"Get sick on me?"

Ariel nodded, "Yeah, she hyperventilates when she gets freaked out and all scared. Sometimes... well... most of the time she ends up ralphing."

Jed looked at the girl, "Ralphing?"

Brennan answered, "She throws up."

"You're kidding me," Jed muttered.

"Nope," the trio replied in unison.

"Damn," Jed shook his head. "Okay, you three stay here and watch the movie. I'll go see about your mother." He closed the door and started to walk down the hall when he saw Charlie come running his way.

"Mr. President," Charlie huffed, coming to a halt.

Jed sighed, "What now?"

"There seems to be a problem with Dr. Erlich, sir." Charlie replied.


"I took her outside, like you told me to." Charlie explained. "She was okay for a moment and then-"

"Then what?" Jed demanded, impatient to with his aide.

"She started to breath funny and-"

"Crap," Jed muttered, running down the hallway.
