Fiona’s head kept popping out.
“Mommy, I definitely need a bigger, bigger one!”
“That’s all you’re getting, Lil, we talked about this!!”
Sighing, her eyes starting to fill, Lily held one hand against the back of Fiona’s head, keeping it down, as her other hand grabbed the plastic lid.
“Sorry, Fionie, I hope you don’t hurt your neck too much. I promise I’ll get you out super soon, okay? Oh, and all you guys, too, of course!”
Lily quickly put the lid on top, maneuvering to get her hand out just in time. With the other hand pushing the lid down, she turned and sat on top, securely closing the box.
Lily’s eyes wandered around her room, where more toys were scattered. Tears filled her eyes again.
Day 1 of Voice Week, and I’ve already violated the 100-word rule, yikes! Sorry, Stephanie!
