“Cause it's a holiday, Matt! Have you forgotten? It's Wednesday and the preschool is only open for half a day. Our teacher said they need to sanitize the place, so we must go home. That's why I called Mrs. Grint and asked her to get you before time,” Vivian replied happily, still feeling proud of herself for saving her brother in time.
Matteo had given her Mrs. Grint's phone number beforehand, so Vivian called the nanny and asked for her help to go look for Matteo.
She held Ian's hand and skipped lightly into their classroom with him.
Their teacher spotted them and waved at them. “Hey, Vivian, I see you've got your brother. Come on, you two, get your bags and be ready to go home. Your mom's almost here. Let's go.”
“Yes!” Vivian's crispy voice rang loud and clear beside Ian's ears. He rolled his eyes as the girl went ahead and grabbed her bag.
