While she was consoling Maya, Nina herself started to tear as she, too, missed Mommy. In the end, both of them hugged each other to sleep.
It was a long and lonely night.
As Maya sobbed, she slowly drifted back into sleep. Meanwhile, Nina's small arms were wrapped around Maya's chubby body. The two children were huddling together pitifully and dreamt of Mommy coming back to them.

Juan and Kyle got up and rushed downstairs to check what was for breakfast.
