“You made it,” Hercules the Lesser said.
“Of course I did – I would never lie to you,” Louise said back to him.
Hercules the Lesser handed her a mitt and slipped one on his own hand.
“I can only play for a little bit, Herc,” she said. “I’ve been on my feet all day with the cooking and the serving. “
“I know, Louise. I know,” he said tossing the ball her way.
She snagged it easily in her mitt and slung it back with practiced grace.
Her hairnet kept everything in place as she continued to catch and throw.
Hercules the Lesser also caught and threw but with much less grace.
