AT RISE: It is bedtime and Mom and ClaraJane are settling down after a lot of horseplay, giggling and nonsense. They are snuggling as ClaraJane reads Harry Potter (#6!) in bed.
Mom: ClaraJane I need to tell you something.
CJ: [Stops reading.] You love me?
Mom: [Mouth agape, incredulous.] How did you know?!
CJ: It’s not exactly a secret.
Mom: [Nods in agreement.] Fair point.
CJ: [Resumes reading.]
M: ClaraJane there’s something else I have to tell you.
CJ: [Stops reading again.] What is it?
M: You’re a terrible person!
CJ: I know. [Resumes reading again.]
M: You don’t even care, do you?
CJ: Yeah I don’t!
