"What?!" Jack asked, surprised by his sister’s comment. He hadn’t thought anyone noticed that he was sick this morning when he’d left. He wouldn’t let something as silly as being sick stop him from having a day of fun with his sister. Plus, he wasn’t that sick anyway….
"You worry too much. I’m fine" he said waving away her concern, before taking time to use his sleeve as a tissue.
Emma didn’t want to make her brother upset, but being sick isn’t a wise choice. Even more so, she didn’t want him to get a fever. But she had to agree with him that it was getting boring. They did all their chores for the day already and had nothing to do at home. She held his hands tightly. “…ok. This will keep you warm. But we could go back when you feel like it.”
Jack smiled down at his sister. He loved to tease her and trick her sometimes, but he also liked spending time with her like this.
"Perfect! I feel better already" he said with a grin, gently pulling her in the opposite direction. "Do what do you want to do today? We can do anything you want." he continued with a small sniff.
"Wanna play hide and seek? I’ll hide first!" She giggled, jumping in excitement. They both stopped at a tree before she quickly ran away to find a hiding spot. "Don’t look!" Just as she hid behind another tree, she turned to see her brother still at the same spot. At least he’s still ok. Hopefully.
