Goodnight kiss

"That is the sweetest thing!" I think to myself as I see Emily leaning over a sleeping Phoebe and kissing her cheek. "How lucky I am that my children love each other so much!"

Now Emily is whispering something in Phoebe's ear. I edge closer and listen. She is speaking in a slow, hypnotic voice. "Phoebe, you want to give Emily ten euros. You love Emily and you want to give her ten euros. You will wake up tomorrow morning, take ten euros from your money box and give it to Em- Oh! hello Dad! I didn't see you there. I was, er, just saying goodnight to Phoebe!"
