After giving Dad a long hug, I grab his bag.
"Oh, dad? Be warned. Carter and Rosie brought over half a dozen of my cousins. They're gonna have to stay with us for a while." I smile while hauling the bag over my shoulder.
He jokes, "More? If you get any more cousins, we'd be able to overfill a bus!"
I giggle. We go inside and everyone smiles.
"Girls, this is my Dad. Michael. Best Dad ever." I smile.
Dad rubs my hair and laughs, "That's because we got the same sense of humour, Goofball."
Scarlett giggles a little.
She smiles, "I'm Scarlett. This is Jasmine. She's a little..."
I finish, "Shy. She has barely said a word. But that's OK."
I sigh as Maya flicks through channels on the TV.
"The TV hogger over there is Maya." I sigh.
Maya calls, "What is Oddball?"
I grab the remote off her and turn on Oddball.
"No more changing channels. Oddball is funny, and I like it." I frown.
Dad sighs, "Amber, calm down."
I smile, "I am calm. In case you haven't noticed, nothings broken yet. Oh, and the girls are sleeping in my Bedroom. Carter arranged it."
Carter walks in with Rosie.
"Watcha watching, Amber?" Carter asks.
Scarlett replies, "Amber just put on Oddball."
Rosie smiles, "That's a good one. Well, what I've seen is good."
I smirk, "You mean where the guy got shot with a Tranq gun and argued with the cop?"
A few of the girls ask, "Tranq gun?"
I answer, "Tranquilliser gun. When loaded with the correct dart, it can put the animal or whatever it is they want to shoot to sleep. Sleep, not death."
