normal circumstances

Could it be possible? Parker wouldn't have to take the flu shot since he was sick with whatever it was that Kat had after she had the flu shot. They both felt slightly miserable. But he showed up at work, pumped on sudafed at least for the next 8 hours.

"Should I go home?" He'd watched the video about being sick and how to sneeze in your arm and coughing into your sleeve. But what they didn't know... when a sneezing attack took over you, you just sneezed anywhere. Everywhere.

"How do you feel?" Charlotte asked pointing that he better stay way away from Rachel's desk. She pulled out some sanitizer spray and sprayed about Rachel's territory.

"Not great. But I don't have a fever." Parker shrugged.

"You might have the pink eye." She nodded.

"No, I don't." He didn't think so. He didn't want to think how red his eyes might be.

"Look, if you feel so miserable. Go home." She smiled as if she knew something about these kind of conditions.

"Well, I'm suppose to be here." God, forbid the director actually do something other than walk around ever so often to spot someone to tell them they should be doing something. It was just the library. Things were suppose to be relaxed. But nothing seemed to be in this economy.

"OK, then .... should I call Rachel and warn her?" Charlotte winced who was cutting out her little books about the October young adult programs filled for the Anime junkie and gamers were not excluded. There was a gamefest coming up along with the 3 live action movies from Death Note.

"I wouldn't scare her if I were you." Parker nodded.

"You got the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies all ready for the book club?" Charlotte moved on to more important questions.

"I thought you were doing that one?"

"I am, but I need you there. If some of the Freshman boys get nasty, I need you to protect me." She laughed.

"You can take of yourself. You always do." Parker told her.

"I dunno. They gets so rude, you know."

"All right. Sure. I'll be there if I must." Parker shrugged.

"Great." Charlotte smile. "Go home and get some sleep."

"I can't." Sudafed definitely wouldn't let him now. He got word their was a crisis in the computer lab. There might be a virus coming from Facebook.
