The Great Tessini

Tonight Tessa came into my room and announced,

"I have a magic show for you! Prepare to be amazed!"

I could see her rubbing a quarter around her left ear lobe and I thought I knew where her show was headed.

I was wrong.

She then told us all to close our eyes.

That alone scared me, but I did it because curiosity beat out experience.
Then we heard her say,

"Abbra Caddabrah! You can all open your eyes!"

When we did,
she was just standing there with her arms out to her sides, her head tilted towards the ceiling, her eyes closed, and a grin on her face, as if she had triumphed.

The four year old King of the World.

I questioned if I had missed something.
Wasn't there supposed to be a quarter somewhere?

Then Chloe yelled out,
"It's in her underwear! EWWWWWWWWWWW! It is! It really is! I saw her put it in!"

"CHLOE! I SAID no peeking!"

"Tessa," I asked,
"Did you put a quarter in your underwear?"

"No." She said.
"It's definitely not there. It's.......somewhere else. I didn't....."

"Yes she did."
Chloe said.
"Hahaha. Tessa's got money in her undies!"

Tessa shot Chloe a look.

I noticed her nightgown was a little bunchy and her legs were knock-kneed.

"Tessa?" I asked,
"Then why are you standing that weird way? What's going on with your bottom? Do you need cream?"

"There is nothing going on with my bottom, My Lady. Goodnight."

Then she backed out of the room as quickly as she had entered, though slightly more awkward.

Moments later, she re-entered, I thought to show the retrieved quarter in question in order to wow and astonish.

Wrong again.

"I'm sorry."
She said.

"I believe I forgot to introduce myself...."
