Sibling Surprise

Wait. I thought I was alone.
Wait. I thought I was alone.

Miss Cheoah thought the boys were all dozing in the study but must have miscounted noses. She asked to go outside to enjoy some nice quiet time to herself only to discover one of her brothers was already there.

Is someone coming outside with me?
Is someone coming outside with me?

One of the two of them was delighted to find company in the yard. Guess which one?

Oh, boy, my sister came to play.
Oh, boy, my sister came to play.
