No, I’m not.
You’re not my mother. SO STOP PRETENDING!
I’m not pretending.
Don’t hug me. Don’t smile at me. I want my mother, and you’re NOT HER.
Okay. I won’t hug you. I’ll try hard not to smile. I know how much you want your mother, sweetheart. She’ll be here as soon as she can.
Soon is a long time.
It can be. She would be with you every minute if she could.
Huh. So, why does she leave me with YOU. Because she PAYS you?
