“Your papa and I have serious things to discuss,” Señora Tenorio told the girls, waving her hands to shoo them away.
“We have information. She wants to help.” Josefina stared at her father’s guns before her mama folded the tablecloth up to cover them. “Tell them what you learned today.”
Sparrow ignored the guns and the instructions to leave the room. “I went to the American ship with Clara. I saw how many men and guns they have. We’ve got to stop them,” Sparrow shared, considering herself a grown-up and very much a part of this adventure.
“You are just children,” Señora Tenorio scolded the girls. “Clara shared all of that with us already. She should not have taken you.”
This information surprised Sparrow. Her eyes were wide, and her mouth hung open.
“Do you expect you are the only one who is trying to shield the governor?” Señora Tenorio asked. “Clara is doing her part to stop this rebellion.”
Sparrow was dumbfounded to learn that Clara was not a rebel herself. She had done a convincing job, making everyone think she cared only for pretty dresses, decorations, and important guests. Maybe there was more that Sparrow did not see.
