    Summary

    “Honestly? They’re hedging because it’s hard to know. Normally in these situations we know if there’s been a kidnapping or violence by now. So, I’m not giving up hope. Once, I was missing for a week because my jeep broke down out of radio range and we had to hike back to camp. Anything can happen out there. But three days is a long time, especially with the technology we have right now.”

    Summary

    Peter was surprisingly old fashioned. For years, she’d been the one to buy roses for her office, but now he sent a weekly bouquet. He liked to pick her up from work, liked to open the door for her, liked to guide her by the small of her back when he wasn’t holding her hand or walking with his arm around her. In the past, a partner who held to her like he did would have driven her insane, but she loved how his hand was never far from hers, how whenever they were together, he leaned in to her space. He liked to choose where they ate - though it wasn’t a problem because they liked the same places, dinners were spent sitting next to each other, not across the table, and he always helped her into her chair, and made sure she ordered first. All of it was perfectly romantic, and Murphy would never admit it to the people in her life, but she was thoroughly enchanted with how he made her feel like a lady.

    Summary

    She had made a difference. She’d changed the course of corporations and political careers with her work. An entire presidential campaign had been altered because of her, really. And if she could take even a small bit of credit for Bush only having one term, she’d own it. She had a life to be proud of and a son she was proud of. And if she griped about the police not getting to her door fast enough, or bitched about how much her car cost to fix, or made sure Avery got into the best school possible (and he would get into that school), then she would have to own some of her own reality.
