WHO Cathal & Marcie WHEN Saturday WHERE Burlington WHAT [Milhouse eyebrow wiggle]
Cathal made his way around to Marcie's house.
He had a great excuse. His excuse was that he was here to work on the car, maybe check in with Marco, see how Kaden was doing with Animorphs... And if he happened to see Marcie - Marcie who was an excellent kisser, Marcie who had promised she would still be into him by the light of day - well... that would just be fine and a coincidence and he certainly wasn't trying to make it happen.
To say that he'd dreamed about her would be ridiculous. He hadn't had any dreams about her, how silly. He was a grown man.
Celeste let him in, and Cathal cast a glance around as he made his way to the garage. No sign of Marcie in those moments, and so he popped the bonnet and got down to working. She might be out, it was possible. She might not even be around, and she might not (he had to admit) actually be interested while sober and in the light of day, no matter what she'd said.
In that case, no one could prove he was here for anything but the car.
