"I’m...just going home. Okay?" Sophie turned away from the others and headed back to the Pet Shack. "Later."
When she was out of earshot, Bree smacked Shiloh’s arm with a fist. "Seriously?" Shiloh snapped.
"Well?" Bree waited for a response, but only received a blank stare. "Go after her! You’re the brother."
"Don’t think so." Shiloh dropped his backpack and absently rubbed his arm. "Dad lost the home. Grandma’s in the hospital. Those are brother things." He wiggled his fingers in the air and rolled his eyes. "Magical green horse throws a hissy fit? That’s a B.F.F. thing."
"You’re both wrong," piped in Callum. "It’s a Sophie thing."
"But look at her," said Bree, pointing at her friend. "She’s really bummed out."
"She’s some learning to do," he replied. "Farasi left for a reason. Sophie has to figure what that means to her."
Shiloh picked up his black bag and slung it over his shoulder. "So what? Put up with mopey Sophie for a while?"
"If that’s what she needs." Callum planted a large hand on Shiloh’s shoulder. "But if she wants to talk, listen. That’s what brothers and friends are for."
