“Is that why you stopped by earlier than normal?” Reem’s question sounded more like a comment.
“Were you surprised?” Lulu waggled her eyebrows at Azzah.
Azzah rolled her eyes, but couldn’t stop herself from grinning. “It’s still too close. You should stop by long before you’re supposed to take over our post. Then we might truly have to keep an eye out.”
“We’re doing that the entire time. It won’t make too much of a difference.” Reem rested an arm on Azzah’s shoulder, leaning into her. “Don’t lose any sleep trying to surprise us. We are unsurprisable.”
“You can say that all you want, but we’ll beat you. One day.”
Azzah shook her head. No offense to Daudi’s words, or Lulu’s effort, but she doubted it. They were too far behind. No one could beat both Azzah and Reem. “Keep trying. We appreciate the attempt.”
“The practice,” Reem corrected. “You both have a good night. We’ll see you on the morrow.”
