The kids insisted on playing hide and seek while Peter didn’t want to since one of the kids had broken their legs while playing hide and seek last time.

“I am not playing anymore.”
A minute passed and the panic set in. Peter was now petrified. He had no clue where to find them. He went downstairs fussing and murmuring “Where could they be? They never do this, how can they do this with me?”

"Are you two in your senses?" screamed Peter
“I’ve been searching you two since an hour, how could you come out of the house without informing me?" Peter said angrily
