"Put that down." Jed rushed over to the curious eleven year old who was holding a very old, very priceless statue in his hands.
"This stinks." Ariel muttered. "Why did we have to come here? I'm old enough to baby-sit us."
"No you're not, Stupid." Jason retorted, as Jed took the figure out of his hands.
"You're here, because your sitter wasn't home." Jed explained.
"I hate Old Lady Krouch." Jason picked up a book from a shelf. "She stinks."
"Well... take that up with your mother." Jed grabbed the book from him. "And unless you're rich, I suggest you put this back, son."
"I'm bored. There's nothing to do here." Ariel yawned as she sat at Jed's desk and rifled through the papers on top of it. Stopping at a copy of a speech Jed was to give to a group of teens in a few days, Ariel picked it up and began to read it.
"What's so funny, young lady?" Jed asked as he stood over Ariel's shoulder.
"This speech is. You're going to sound like a complete idiot when you give this. I mean really... this line right here, what do you think we are? Stupid?"
"You are stupid, Stupid." Jason said from the couch, where he was told to stay or die.
"Was anyone talking to you?" She snapped.
"No, but I commented anyway." Jason responded as he found the door opening up.
"Yes Mrs. Landingham?" Jed's voice was full of desperation.
"Mrs. Erlich is here, sir."
"Send her in, please." Jed begged, as Mrs. Landingham left and in walked Brennan on crutches, followed shortly by Abbey.
