Rough and Tumble, Chapter 222: Summer Reading Program

Chapter 222: Summer Reading Program

Zeke propped his chin on the counter and stared up at the librarian. “Is it time?”

“Ten more minutes,” she replied, her usual bright smile a little forced.

Blue eyes drifted to the wall clock that ticked away the seconds. “Now?” he asked.

“That was ten seconds, Zeke.”


Ethan huffed in amusement when his charge tried to pass the time by holding his breath.

After turning red and gasping noisily, Zeke asked, “Is it time yet?”

Naomi collared her son. “Sorry! He’s very excited for the magic show.”

With a wan smile, the woman simply said, “Eight more minutes.”
