“Liberty, will you save my napkin so Sterling can’t get it?”
“I’m not going to get it! Ruby, I don’t steal napkins!”
“I’m going to tell mom.”
“No! I’m telling mom on you!”
“No. I’m telling mom.”
This went on, a room away, for many minutes. In the end, no one came to tell me anything. The impending threat of tattle tale consequences was apparently greater than whatever was going on. Sterling and Ruby love each other so much. Can’t you tell?
