"Oh again?" Asked Hazel walking into the room. 
"Again?"

"You know Franks a shapeshifter, Ellen must have inherited it." She states.

Then they here the door open. "I got groceries." They here Frank's voice say. 
They walk into the kitchen to see Frank unloading the groceries.

"Da da." She says. 
"Hey Ellen." Frank says taking the baby. 
Nico and Hazel start putting the groceries in the fridge and pantry. 
"Nico, you know you can go home now right?" Hazel asks her brother. 
"It's fine, I like hanging out with Ellen." Says Nico. 
Hazel looks around, "do you remember where I set Lilly's new phone number?" Hazel asks. 
"Its right there." Says Nico pointing to the counter.
"Thanks." Says Hazel.
