Once Lois got over her surprise, she stepped back to let her friend in. The apartment wasn't too messy, but it wasn't something out of a home magazine either. It was clear some changes had been made recently. And there were blankets folded up on the couch and the balcony door was open a crack.
Lois shut the door, grinning a little. "It seems like it's been awhile since I've seen you." Or a lot of things had happened. She stepped forward and hugged Didi affectionately, tightly for just a moment. "You surprised me, all right. We're going somewhere?" Lois ignored the question for now, either because she wasn't sure how to answer it or didn't want to.
