“Hi Josh, Louise,” she said nodding at each of them.
“Louise is teaching me to finger spell properly,” Josh told her proudly.
“I see,” she said in reply. “Where’s Eric?”
“In his room,” Josh told her as Louise looked on. “You’re becoming a permenant fixture around here lately,” he commented.
“Mia?” Louise said before she raised her hands and started to sign quickly, earning a confused look from Josh as he tried to decipher the meaning behind her gestures.
Waiting until Louise finished, she gave a tight smile. “I’m just going to go and see Eric,” she told them, thumbing over her shoulder towards the direction of Eric’s room.
Louise’s eyes narrowed as she watched her disappear through Eric’s bedroom door.
“What was that about? You were signing so fast, I couldn’t understand any of it,” Josh said after tapping Louise on the shoulder to get her to look at him.
“I don’t know,” she said and signed, shaking her head as her eyes drifted towards Eric’s bedroom. “It’s just… I don’t think this is right,” she told him.
“What do you mean?” he asked, attempting to sign a couple of the words that he knew.
Louise smiled at him as she watched him try, “Will you come for a drive? I want to check on something.”
