AT RISE: It is bedtime. 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: [Interrupting.] 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.]
Mom: [Interrupting again.] ClaraJane there’s something else I have to tell you.
CJ: [Stops reading again.] What is it?
Mom: You’re a terrible person.
CJ: I know. [Resumes reading again.]
Mom: You don’t even care do you?
CJ: Yeah I don’t!
Mom: [Resumes snuggling.]
