“Nooooo!” screeches Little Miss. “Don’t use my sandwich!!” She runs to the end of the plastic tape, makes a swooping grab at its end, and pretends to gobble it out of her hand. This repeats a few times, each sandwich-gobbling reaction becoming more desperate.
Finally, Tiern modifies the baiting of his hook: “Fine. Then I’ll use my sandwich,” he says as his hand manipulates the air at the end of his line.
“Oh! Okay.” Little Miss walks away.
