Laurent winced. He did offer…
Awww . . . Joel and Billy said, almost in unison.Don’t worry, I’ll bring them by to visit when I come see Lorrie.
Yay! the boys sang. Billy latched onto Hunter’s leg and tried to climb him like a tree.I shook my head smiling. Those boys sure had their priorities straight. Hunter stayed behind to play with them while I headed into the house.I was still smiling when I ran into my aunt in the kitchen. She turned around from stirring the large pot on the stove when I came in.
Oh, there you are. Here, have a little snack. Dinner will be ready in an hour.I opened my mouth to protest, but then the smell of chicken noodle soup reached my nose. Grabbing a small metal spoon from the drawer, I sat down and decided not to argue.
Aunt Caroline started cutting vegetables while I drank the soup. I watched her work. She was in a good mood, humming to herself.
So, how was the apartment hunt today? she asked.Marie-France, said Mme. LeGuarde. The ladies kissed, but with no noticeable warmth. Then she turned her pale blue eyes to Claire, who felt herself quailing under the weight of such scrutiny.
Her legs are short, she barked.I know, said Mme. LeGuarde, uncharacteristically humble. What can you do?
But the lower part of the leg should equal the length of the thigh.I shall have them rebroken immediately.
