‘Who did this?’ she roared, waving the thermometer before his face.
His eyes were filled with fear and mischief as his lower lip trembled. ‘I don’t know. It must be Sam.’
‘Sam wasn’t home all day. He was with us. You were the only one home’ she reasoned. She placed her hands on her hips and her looks questioned, ‘What have you to say?’
‘Why do you think it is always me?’ he murmured under his controlled breath.

He came back to reality with a jolt.
