Bit tricky. She pressed the ‘mute’ button on the phone at certain parts so that all her mom heard was, “Emergency… call… help.”

The things she said to her mom was the clue... First "this is an emergency mom" Second "why should her mom call her when she was at home...?". Third "she asks her help "by saying that to help her in painting", though they know, no help can be done in painting via phone..
