“Susan?”

“Yes, Twyla?”

“Why do we have to put these up?” The girl holds up a paper chain.

Why couldn’t she ask a simpler question?, Susan wonders but she can’t help a small smiggle of pride wriggling in. “We decorate in order to celebrate Hogswatch.”

“Why?”

Susan looks at her, turning from putting the kettle on; she knows about Hogswatch but not the way that Twyla does --- her parents had taught her to be sensible, to put distanced between he and her grandfather.

Who was Death. Skeleton, cloak, scythe, white horse. The whole lot.

“Twyla.”

“Yes, Susan?”

“Tea shall be soon.”

“What about my question?”

“I answered it. Think on what I said and then come back to me. Ask Gawain if he’d like hot chocolate to drink.”

“Yes, Susan.”

As she walks away, Susan sets the kettle on the stove and turns to fetch three mugs.

I'd hate to see her version of a simple question.
