what you really really want

I needed a few minutes of (ahem) privacy. A toddler (who will remain unnamed) was lingering in the doorway.
Dyami called her from the other room. "Julia, come here."
"Do you want to read some books?"
"Do you want some hugs?"
"Do you want some tickles?"
"Do you want some pinches?"
Pause. "Yes." Toddles away.
