    Summary

    Margaret has always thought John a careful man, unlikely to be swayed by her words or those of any others once his mind is resolved to a thing, yet she finds over and over again that this is no longer true, if indeed it ever was. He remains achingly grateful for her praise.

    Summary

    “No,” Curtis said flatly, and Edgar’s nostrils flared. Here we go, Curtis thought. They fought in the dark, looping over the same arguments, rebuttals, and counter-rebuttals, until Edgar was right up in Curtis’s face, breath coming short and hard, big owl eyes trying to bore a hole into Curtis’s forehead and transfer some of his patented ‘sodding good sense.’ And two wires must have crossed wrong in Curtis’s brain, some freak misfiring of a neural signal, because when Edgar finally leaned away, looking thoroughly exasperated, Curtis’s chin pushed forward out of its own accord, his lips parted, just a sliver, and they both went still.
