Sasha paused briefly in surprise before replying, “No, I’m not.”

“I know you are, Mommy! You haven’t been talking much tonight, Mommy! Did someone bully you? You can tell Vivi! Vivi will avenge you!”

Vivian waved her meaty fist in the air as she said that, and Sasha couldn’t help but smile in response.
