No, your mum

Jamie couldn't help the little grin at Sammy's firey reaction. It was like when Ji-Eun rose to the bait, there was just something satisfying about it. Had a psychologist had a chance to have a crack at him, they might have reasoned that it was because Jamie was so poor at making genuine emotional connections with other people - the same way a crying toddler will escalate when its otherwise unemotional parents shout at it, because bad attention is better than no attention. Jamie, however, remained blissfully unaware of his own emotional short-comings, and just reasoned that it was cos it was kinda fun.

And he got the congratulations that he had wanted and deserved. Even if it came with some whole team blah blah.

"Yeah, sure - except when you were diving off to save Joella. Threw some tricks in there to make sure Tobi couldn't get on my tail while you were away," he explained, although his manner had shifted. Now that Sammy had given him his little pat on the head, he said in a much more matey way, a grin on his face. It was just banter, rather than point scoring.

"You're not a bad beater for such a pipsqueak," he acknowledged with a wink.
