Green Sister 33

"What the...," Lee yelled as he opened the car door and got out.

Janna struggled to sit up straight but Mark tightened his arms around her. She looked into his face and could feel her face flush as she noticed his gaze on her.
As she opened her mouth to speak, Lee came back to the car. Mark's grasp loosened and Janna sat up, straightening her clothes.

"There's a large tree in the way," Lee said. "It's going to take a while for us to get it cleared. Mark, can you come and help us?"

"Sure," he said. "Do you think it was put there on purpose to stop us?"

"I'm sure it was," Lee said. "We must be getting close. Nancy intended to slow us down and she's succeeded. I just wish I knew what she was doing that she needed to gain some extra time." He sighed, then directed his attention to Janna. "You going to be okay here while we move this tree?"

Janna didn't get the chance to answer before Mark said, his gaze intent on her face, "I think that Janna's having stomach problems again, aren't you, Janna?"

She shot a look at his face and saw a slight smile form on his lips as he held her gaze with a knowing look in his eyes.
