Amigos Desperately Needed

Clark and Sam slept in Sam's twin beds.  It's noon and I don't hear a peep.
I enter the room, dark except for the glow of matching laptops on matching beds.
What are you guys doing?
Nervous laughter...we're on facebook.
Who're you talking to -- the girls from camp?
Um, no.  They take at sneaky look at one another.  Sam answers first.
I'm talking to... Clark.
Clark, your brother in the next bed?
Um hmm.  He taps out another message.  Clark chuckles.
Why? I'm baffled.
Because it's fun!  We're talking to Lucia too!
Lucia, in the next bedroom.

School starts in 11 days.
