Sharon kissed Hamish’s cheek. “What am I going to do about you, kiddo? I have to go to work. And you’ve got daycare.”

 

Hamish shook his head.

 

“But you love daycare. And this weekend you get to bring the hamster home, remember?”

 

He shook his head.

 

“You stay home, Sharon,” Sam said, “I’ll work the market.”

 

“What about your interview at Quail Gardens?”

 

“I’ll call them, change the date.”

 

He grabbed the market keys from a bowl on the table and headed for the door. He stopped. “By the way, you’re going to have to find someone else to paint the parish house.”

 

Sharon loved her brother’s mouth and the way it split into a grin that made her grin back. He did not look like a boy anymore; but that grin, that silly, beaming, proud and wicked grin, it was a boy’s expression all the way.

 

“Sammy, don’t get hurt.”

 

“We’re going to dinner at the place next to Lovey’s. We’re not climbing Everest…”

 

“Enzio’s? How will you afford it? You don’t have a job.”

 

“You worry about Hamish, let me worry about me.”

 

“We don’t know anything about Dee Larue. She just wandered in off the street and stayed. She could be a murderer hiding out. I mean, it’s a perfect place. Who’d ever look for a –.”

 

“She’s deep, Sharon, but she’s not twisted.”

 

How could he be so sure?
