When she got home, Mother Otter exclaimed, “Olivia! What took you so long? Millie’s already here!”
“There's a yummy snack of clams and crabs,” groaned Millie. "I ate tons!"
“I’m not hungry,” said Olivia.
“Olivia Omnivore, not hungry? Unbelievable!” teased Millie.
Mother squinted at Olivia’s sad face. “My dear, what's the matter? Where’s Kit?”
“He’s with some friends,” replied Olivia, quietly.
“Are you sick?” asked Mother.
“No,” said Olivia. “I've got homework.”
“Oh,” said Mother, with an understanding smile, “homework. Let me
know if you need help.”
But Olivia didn’t do her homework. She lay on her bed and didn’t
move even when she heard Mother calling her for supper.
