I am looking for a verb either one-part or two-part, to describe going after someone for example your mom to take them from home for example on your car. First I wanted to use come after, but it seems it has a negative implication like hurting someone. Also, go after seems to mean following and chasing someone rather than going to pick them. What is the best verb to use here?
An example of how I want to use it is as follows:
-Were not you supposed to come after me in the morning so we would not get stuck in traffic? - That's right. Sorry mom for being late. The road will open now and we will go.
