“Mom got them on Amazon. I’ve had them a week, but they look great don’t they? I think mom felt guilty about not letting me go up to Grampa’s with you, so bought these for me. How was it up there? Do any fishin?”
They sat down on the bed and Jamie tried on the shoes, of course, way too large. Pete didn’t mind. They had a strong bond, especially where their sister Peg was concerned.
Peg happened to walk in the room at that moment. She felt superior, being the oldest, and also thought she could enter their room at any time. This led to the boys’ close relationship, “two against one” they would whisper to each other.
Peg grabbed one of the shoes and secretly thought they were okay, but what she wanted was a pair with Wonder Woman on them. She didn’t acknowledge Pete’s new shoes were anything special, flipped it back to Jamie and walked out.
