Todd walked up to
Amanda while she was getting her mail.
"Are you busy
right now?" Todd asked.
Amanda said and held up her stack of mail. "Just checking to see how many
times I won a contest or sweepstakes I never entered."
Todd chuckled, "Let's get some coffee."
She had been avoiding the coffee shop since she got back. Until Todd mentioned

"Did she say
anything?" Todd asked.
"No, my alarm

saw the confusion on his face, she added, "Yeah, I was confused too. As a

dream, but she did have a thought, "I think she was talking about

Perhaps she will
