Christian peered under the porcelain mugs. Mama was specific, “don’t touch anything”.

Being super careful so they wouldn’t break was the next best option.

He sighed as the mug search revealed nothing. A woman, her hair still in rollers, watched him carefully misplace dirty napkins in the trash.

“Excuse me.” Jasmine’s attention was pulled to the sight of her son rifling through sugar packets by one of her more difficult regular guests.

“Christian, I told you not to touch anything.”

“It’s Diamond, she got out.”

From the dining room the woman with rollers in her hair screamed, “a snake!”
