Rodriguez/Bear - Round 18
"Aw, Mom, our television show is on!"
Dana crossed her arms. "No tv during dinner. Come sit at the table and we'll talk like a family."
The kids groaned, "But Moooooooom."
But, one look from Dana had them scurrying over to the table to eat, with a few sad glances back towards the television that had been turned off.
Randy rolled his eyes. "Come on Lance, let's go back to my room. I'll show you that game I've been playing."
"Yeah sure," Lance stuck his tongue out at Ruby before heading back to play.
Ruby watched him go and thought that he had to have been the most annoying boy in the world.
"Can you believe that Regan?" Ruby fumed.
Ruby swiveled her head to look at her sister. "Are you kidding? He told me I spilled ketchup on my shirt, then poked my nose! What is he, 10?!"
Regan shrugged. "I dunno. Want me to pass him a note?"
"GAH!" Ruby yelled as she stomped outside to paint. She generally felt so much calmer when she was painting.
It felt so strange!
Ruby looked around, "Umm... no I haven't seen him. Have you tried the bathroom. He likes to preen."
Theo laughed, "Yeah? We should try to catch him in action!"
Theo and Ruby giggled and ran out of the room to safety.
Laughing, Theo put his arm around Ruby. "That was awesome!" he said.
Ruby felt all warm and light-headed when he put his arm around her and was insanely disappointed when he pulled her hair and told her he'd see her later.
