Chapter 7

Mandy was up early in the morning. She sat alone at the kitchen table with her hands wrapped around a hot mug of tea. In front of her was the work she had abandoned the night before. A knock at the door, scared her so much she knocked her tea over. "Fuck," she muttered, grabbing a towel and mopping up the spill before it got to her papers.

The second knock was impatient. "What the hell?" she wondered, heading for the door. She peered out the window onto the front porch of her town house. She blinked twice and looked closer. Then she opened the door. "What the hell are you doing here?" she demanded.

"Good morning to you, too," Kip said, with a boyish grin. "Told you I'd see you again. Hope I'm not too early." He leaned in and kissed her cheek.

She shook her head dumbly. "Come in," she said, holding in a sigh, stepping back and holding the door open. She wasn't ready, she didn't have her defenses up yet. He couldn't be here. She had to be in bed still dreaming.

He stepped in and took off his shoes. He held out a box of doughnuts, like it was a peace offering. Tim Horton's, she shook her head. He held a four-pack tray of coffee cups, all steaming. "I wasn't sure what you drank these days, so I got something of everything with hope."
