"Okay, thanks." Michael hung up the phone.
"Spoke to Uen?" Madeline asked. She and Katherine had come over to get Fi and begin looking for nursery furniture.
"Yep, he's fine with me adding some protections to the house." Michael, Sam, and Jesse had Harden Nursery: Phase One all but in motion when Madeline mentioned that just maybe, before ripping the walls out and reinforcing them with rebar that it would be a good idea to ask their landlord if it was okay to make any modifications.
In that his mom and mother-in-law were sitting there, helping Fi get baby things ready, he agreed to do it. But no matter what Uen said, that room was going to be reinforced and protected. Lucky for him, Uen was fine with it, and he didn't have to lie.
"Does he have any idea what sorts of protections you intend to add?" Madeline asked.
"He might be under the impression that I'll be adding motion activated floodlights, and maybe an alarm system."
"Uh huh." Madeline looks at Michael standing in front of stacks of rebar, new drywall, the specialty reinforced, bulletproof glass windows, and the dual alarm systems.
"I will install motions activated floodlights and an alarm system."

"We are ready to go. Uen says we can add whatever we like as long as it's back to the way it was before we began when we leave."
"You didn't tell him what you were going to do, did you?"
"Not at all."
"Okay then." Jesse grabbed the dust masks and tossed one to Michael and one to Sam. "Let's tear down some drywall."
"Bye, boys, have fun!" Madeline calls out as they head off, the sound of power tools echoing behind her.
