"Erlich residence," Jason answered the phone. "Who's calling?"
"Jason, it's me, the geek. Is your mother there?" Jed asked.
"Yeah... but she's pretty pissed, Mr. President." Jason pulled the phone away from him, "Mom, phone."
"Who is it?" Abbey asked from the warm comfort of the couch.
Abbey breathed heavy before picking the phone up, "Yes?" She said, trying to keep her anger in check, but failing miserably.
"I'm so sorry, Abbey." Jed said. After a long pause of silence, he continued, "You're upset."
"You're damn right I'm upset." Abbey seethed. "They showed up at his soccer game, Jed. They tried to talk to Jason and Ariel."
"What'd they ask them about?"
"What the hell do you think they asked about?" Abbey thundered. "They wanted to know every little detail about us. They cornered my children and asked them to give 'the scoop' on our relationship, Jed!"
"I'm so sorry, Abbey. I'm fixing it now. Those reporters are going to wish they had died." Jed said as another long silence fell over the phone line. "Abbey?"
"I really am sorry. It won't happen again. I promise."
"There's only one way that it won't happen again Jed. And we both know it."
"You're not saying what I think you're saying. Are you?"
"I don't know what I'm saying Jed. I just don't want them near my children. They deserve more than this. And as their mother, I intend on giving it to them."
"I've got to get them in bed now. Tomorrow's a school day. I'll talk to you later." Abbey quickly hung the phone up.
"Damnit!" Jed shouted at his phone when he heard the dial tone.
