“Enough of dawdling. Time to study.”

“Ma…” His sister, Rita, elbowed him. He subsided.

“Go along now. It’s cold. Take my shawl and share it. Rita, remember to switch off the torch. Batteries don’t grow on trees you know?”

“It’s raining.”

“Make a dash for it.” Maya pushed them.

Maya’s dinner was soon done.

She picked up a pile of stitching.
