Lucy liked the 'Street. It was one of the things she was allowed to watch on television without adult supervision, though the interactions between the characters always seemed two-dimensional and petty. Minor arguments regularly erupted into major feuds over little more than miscommunication. Honestly, what did it matter if someone ate all the cookies? They could just send someone out for more, surely? It wasn't like it was a third-world country where food was scarce.
The one thing she couldn't understand was why her mother abandoned her every day. The Count never abandoned his friends, just because it was daylight.
