horrible timing

Maxie didn't understand. The cops were no help. They acted as if he'd done something with her. He explained once again where they'd been. What he was doing.

"She was there, and then she was gone." Simple, wasn't it? "I love her. She's having my baby. Can't you people do something? Won't you help me find my wife?"

They were putting him in jail. Holding him as if he better confess something. Maybe it was a language problem. Maxie shook his head. How could this be? What was he going to do?

He'd wanted to call Jamie at first, but called Simon instead when the questions started.

"If you don't hear from me, tell Jamie what happened." He wondered if Simon would do it. As it was Simon had a lot on his mind about Josh. It was not going well for them either. Evidently. "Are you listening? Something has happened to Katy." He thought his heart might fall on the floor when he said it. His heart ached so now.

Maxie hoped she was all right. He never imagined being in a jail cell in Spain on his honeymoon. What in the hell had happened? How long would they keep him here? It was a dungeon. Perhaps historical only he was hysterical. He thought any moment they'd take him to the gallows. After all, it was the Spanish Inquisition, wasn't it? If they ever made it home, he never wanted to take a step out of the Oaks, again.

I can't seem to know whether to feel bad for him or laugh... Maybe that's just me.
