"Don't let me go, please."
"Can you not let me go, please?"
Bri held her tighter. "That better, Soph?"
Sophie squirmed a little, then relaxed. "Yep."
"Hey Auntie? You might wanna wake my Mama and Daddy up."
"Huh? Okay." Camille ran out of the room.
"Hey Mommy, where'd Mommy go?" Sophie asked, missing what just happened, but noticing Camille had left.
"Hey, shh, shh, it's okay. She'll be back."
"When will she be back?"
"When she's done waking Annie's parents up."
"...Oh. Okay." She relaxed.
When Camille got to their room, she gently shook Maya awake, not trusting Calvin's reflexes not to hit her.
Her eyes instantly snapped open.
"Hi. Annie wanted me to wake the two of you."
