Ember had been such an exceptional new toy. Attentive and obedient, so eager to please. In the event of an evening with a few missteps, one might have thought to let them slide in reflection of her earlier behavior.
That one would have completely misunderstood her. I would not tolerate any backsliding, and she thanked me for it later.
