Chapter 193: Leafs
Ethan dreaded all the new avenues for mischief that preschool presented, but having teachers and classmates was bringing out interesting new facets to Zeke’s personality.
“This paper says you only need ten leaves,” Prissie said in bossy tones.
“I know,” Zeke replied, adding sumac leaves to his collection.
“You have dozens!” his sister complained.
“I know,” he repeated. “But what if people don’t have as many trees as us. Or what if they only gots yellow leafs. This way, I can share!”
Prissie didn’t look convinced, but Ethan was pleased … maybe even a little proud of Zeke’s burgeoning generosity.
