The mother fought the waver in her throat before it could make her words shudder through the phone.

“Settled in?”

“Mm-hmm.”

“Locked the door?”

“Mo-om.”

“Sorry, force of habit. Love you, sweetheart.”

“Love you too, Mom.”

“Hope your first day goes well.”

A chuckle. “Miss you too. Bye.”

“Good night.”
