“Vega,” she said. “Have you noticed that everything you say rhymes?”
Ten Star Darlings' heads swiveled around to look at Piper, curious looks on their faces.
Cassie cocked her head to the side. “Really?” she said. “I don't hear it.”
Gemma turned to Tessa. “Imagine if I talked in rhyme all the time? That would be so annoying!”
Tessa laughed. “My stars!” she said to her sister. “Bite your tongue!”
“Ouch!” said Gemma.
Vega stared at Piper like she had three auras. “Piper, do you need some schooling? Talking in rhyme? You must be fooling!”
With a quick glance at Astra, Piper asked, “You really didn't just hear that?”
“I think it is completely clear,” Vega replied. “There isn't anything to hear.”
Does that answer your question?
It certainly does!
