Susan didn't know why she was spending just a little extra time on her hair, or her appearance this morning. Had she actually admitted that she was doing it because Cass was coming around and they were going to his mother's, she would have shaken some sense into herself. Susan didn't primp and preen. She'd never done that before.

Hearing the knock at the door as she was coming back down the stairs, she answered it and gave a grin. "Well now, stranger, what can I possibly do for you?" She was already ushering him through the doorway.
"Did Percy let you off his leash for the day?" she said with a humorous tone, letting Cass know she was merely joking.
