“Okay,” Emma said. She thought for a moment. “Yeah, okay. That’s fair enough.”

“You’re not offended?”

“I don’t think so.”

Izzy seemed worried. “Are you? You don’t seem sure.”



“Nope. Not at all.”


“See. That wasn’t really that bad, was it?”

“I suppose not. So, your turn.”

Emma thought. “Yeah,” she said. “I still have no idea. I can’t think of anything.”
