Roxanna had been pulling out her wallet to pay, but Deirdre's next words brought her up a bit short and made her smile. "Oh, wow, thank you," she said. "And I will pass that along, for sure."
"Perseus is your husband, right?" she asked. "Then yes, I think that's right. Sometimes that family tree makes my eyes cross, so you're not alone. But me, well...I was born in Seattle. Hermes obviously didn't stick around, and I was placed in foster care by the age of 6, since my mom didn't really seem to care about me too much. I was adopted when I was 13, and those are the people I consider my parents. I came out here last year to study music performance, focusing on the drums. And I met Patroclus because Lena set me up on a blind date, in an effort to help me be more social."
