"Hello, mother! What's up?" answered Cherry.
"Cherry, are you off duty already?" asked Elsa anxiously.
"Yes, I'm actually driving back home right now, " replied Cherry, who already guessed that her mother was wondering when she would be arriving home.
Elsa continued, "Cherry, go to the school now and pick Joe up. Your brother's still working at the company, so he didn't go to school to get Joe. Just a few minutes ago, a teacher called and said that Joe was still at school waiting for someone to pick him up."
"Okay mother, I'll be right there, " hastily said Cherry.
