Ryan Taylor jerked up from his hospital bed exclaiming, “What?”

“What your boss is trying to tell you, bird brain, is that you got the wrong pair of sisters,” said the little sister as she walked in with her older sister right behind her.

Terrow responded, “No, because we’re not the Fowler sisters. We are the Holmes sisters. I’m Terrow Holmes and my older sister is Moiré Holmes.”

He muttered, “How close was I?”

Moiré laughed hysterically as Terrow snickered. “Next door.”
