"Okay. I know. Huey is teasing you. It's just a joke. Don't take it to heart, okay?" Annie said to console her daughter when she saw that the little one became quite sad.

"It's not a joke," Huey said flatly. Boys were boys, they always tended to make fun of their sisters at home. However, if anyone outside dared to bully their sisters, they would spare no effort to defend them. Such was the strange but precious phenomenon of sibling love.

"Huey!" Annie snapped with a straight face. It was only when Annie showed anger that her son knew that he should be nice to his sister.

"Okay. I know. Mommy always favors Joyce over me. Hmph!" As soon as he finished his words, Huey instantly turned around and rushed upstairs, the sound of his running feet hitting the hardwood quite heavily. He was indeed hurt by his mother's scolding tone.

"Mommy, is Huey crying?" Joyce asked with concern as droplets of tears started to pool and wet her long lashes.

"Don't worry. He's alright. He is a boy, and boys don't easily cry." Despite saying so, Annie was still a little worried. After she had calmed Joyce down, she walked upstairs.

When she reached her bathroom, Annie turned on the tap and filled the tub with warm water. She then added a packet of Epsom salt and a bath bomb to help her relax. When she deemed it enough, she removed her clothes and submerged her body into the water. The warmth of the bath made her feel relieved from all the troubling things that day as she enjoyed it in a comfortable silence.

A whole lifetime was too much of a stretch, and she didn't know how long she could hold on and how long she could hide all this from her children. It stressed her out so she just decided to go ahead with the flow and deal with whatever that would happen along the way. She had no other choice now anyway.

The sky in S City was filled with thick, greyish cumulus clouds that made the atmosphere quite cold this year. It was probably due to the weather, or it simply varied from person to person. However for Rain, it had never been too cold for his liking.
