Purple was her favorite. Claire smiled. Once again, Benny led the way to the backyard, with Watch at his heels. As the boxcar came into view, Amelia's face lit up. Professor Murray rolled open the door, and Amelia followed him inside. The children stayed outside with Watch. We couldn't bring her with us, though—my Aunt Flo's allergic.
I'd like that," said Claire. Amelia stepped out of the boxcar, a big smile on her face. Oh, no," Amelia laughed.
That's all. Amelia smiled mysteriously. Her face had a distant look, as if she was deep in thought. Benny's question seemed to shake Amelia out of her thoughts. I was just trying to picture a family living in here. Just then, Professor Murray emerged from the boxcar. They could put it on display and make sure it isn't damaged.
