I felt like Lucas and I needed more time to figure out how to handle the situation, but we just had to go on the best we could.
"Hi, Mom," I said, trying to smile.
"Hi, guys," she said. "I'm glad to see you survived your day in one piece."
Normally Lucas and I would have made some sarcastic comments, asking her how much trouble she thought we could get into when we had to talk to her on Robert's mobile phone every hour.
