Matt let Klaus go in, then followed behind. When Smitty left the door, Matt made a point to let his cane hit the edge of the portal. Easy enough then to close and lock. His phone started to ring. Crap. He hadn't gotten a new model yet that was friendly to the seeing impaired. He pulled out the smartphone and passed it to Klaus. The voice on the other end was Thomas, his brother.
Special K! You nut jobs home yet or what? Mum and I drove by earlier but Baby was missing, so she insisted on grocery shopping. It think she wanted a fat kid in the family and we've all disappointed her, so now's her chance!"
Matt had to fight to keep from laughing at his brother. After all, he wasn't supposed to be able to hear the other side of a phone call and it would lead to an uncomfortable talk with Klaus. Not something he wanted or needed today. Thomas and Klaus kept talking, setting up a time for them to drop by and drop off everything that Matt didn't need or want. Sure, it was sweet of her to go to the effort, but...
But nothing, he could hear her say. You're my oldest son and yadda yadda, as Klaus would say. Who could resist a mother's love, right?
