The Apartment #270

by

"Have you noticed anything?" Harry asked Tisha and Daniel.
Tisha shook her head. The others looked around the room.
Daniel patrolled the room with his eyes. Studied the others. Then considered his sentried readiness for attack or defence.
Then he identified it.
The feeling. The emotion.
One by one he saw it in the others, too.
They way they stood, or sat. The way they interacted and spoke. Body language. Gestures. He saw it in others and saw it in himself.
"I'm not afraid anymore," he whispered to Harry. "We're all calm."
"I reckon," said Harry "We've learned to accept."
