...and then – Becca Ramsey and Charlotte Johanssen arrived.
They were wearing plastic charm bracelets and were so busy comparing the charms that Charlotte didn’t see Stacey.
Finally, as Mr. Ramsey was leaving, Stacey stepped up behind Char and tapped her on the shoulder. “Excuse me,” she said. “Can you tell me where I could find a Charlotte Johanssen?”
“I’m – ” Charlotte started to say. She turned around. She looked up. Her eyes began to widen. They grew and grew and grew. “Stacey!” she managed to say, gasping.
Becca grinned. She was in on the surprise.
“I’m back for the weekend,” said Stacey in a wavery voice. Then she knelt down, held her arms open, and Charlotte practically dove into them.
