By now, Sam was used to the whole turning-into-a-girl thing happening every once in a while. Waking up yesterday morning had been annoying, but he'd been grateful that it was Sunday, when he didn't have much of anything to do. When he woke up this morning though, his attitude was very different. He'd gone back to bed for a few more minutes, in case sleep was what made the whole thing wear off, but nothing happened, and in the end, Sam realized he didn't have any choice but to skip his college classes for the very first time. After sending off e-mails to some of his classmates, claiming to be violently ill and begging them to take good notes for him, Sam had spent the better part of the day sitting in the apartment and moping. He wasn't even sure if he could leave the apartment and take the risk of nosy neighbors seeing him coming and going and thinking something was up.
The one perk to being at the apartment instead of being in class was that Sam had been around when the mail arrived. Looking through the envelopes, Sam found that the bill for his and Peter's internet connection had arrived. Peter still hadn't figured out that Sam was secretly paying that bill every month, and it really was better off that way - Sam got to contribute to the household expenses, and Peter didn't have to feel guilty. Sam took the bill and hid it away inside one of his books, and set the rest of the mail down in the kitchen before going back to lay down on the couch with Scout. If he didn't go back to being a boy soon, he didn't know what he was going to do.
