Little Sister: "Oh no!" [said in a very sad tone, with her head hung low]
Big Brother: "What? What's the matter R.?"
Little Sister: [deep, dramatic sigh] "Well, there is something wrong with my room."
Big Brother: [with a puzzled expression on his face] "What is wrong with your room?"
Little Sister: [now with hurried and concerned excitement] "Um, there is something wrong with my room that makes it scary."
Big Brother: "Ohhh. Well, is it the darkness? Or is it that the closet door is open?"
Little Sister: "It is that the closet door is open and there is darkness in there."
Big Brother: [now in a VERY big brotherly, step-back-and-let-me-handle-this-for-you sort of a voice] "Ok, R. Don't worry, I'll go with you. I'm not afraid of the closet...or the darkness."
And then Big Brother proceeds to lead the way to the scary closet filled with darkness and shut the door. He marches back to Little Sister and proudly announces, "There you go, R. I took care of it for you."
