When Claire’s class comes in from the playground at school, they pass through the “activity room”, which is a shared, open space that different classes use throughout the day for things like gymnastics or just some indoor play time. Apparently today, as Claire and her friends came through the activity room, they discovered Molly in there with her class. Claire ran over and gave Molly a big hug. Several of Claire’s friends also thought that looked like a good idea, and maybe they should give Molly a hug too. Eventually, Molly’s teacher had to seal off an area around Molly to protect her from the horde of hugging friends.
“No more hugs, people! Nothing to see here!” I imagine the teaching saying.
Molly does have many fans among Claire’s friends, but she usually doesn’t have to deal with them all at once.
