Susan winked back and kissed him back on the cheek as he passed through the door.
"And not even you can distract him from such a chore?" She asked in surprise. "Cass, I do believe you're slipping." Tutting, she waggled a finger at him. "Seriously, he needs to lighten up, or he'll work himself into an early grave." But she knew that truly, there was nobody else left at work who was willing to keep up, and as much as he annoyed her, she honestly could not criticise his work ethic.
She managed to roll her eyes. "Flattery like that isn't going to make these kittens go away, you realise? What did your mother say about them? Are they gorgeous?" Susan was actually quite excited to be going and collecting the kittens, as she was really quite a sucker for a basket full of adorable and very cuddly kittens.
Mischa yowled and she turned to snort at him. "Don't think you will be getting out of your fatherly duties either," she scowled kind heartedly at her pet. "No getting grumpy when these kittens grab all the attention."
Brushing down her dress again, she grinned at Cass. "Ready whenever you are."
