End of Chapter 7, Scene 3

He leaned into the chair, placed hands on the armrests, turned to face his hostess with a half-formed question, to find she had gone rigid. Ah—damned thoughtlessness. Most people found it amusing when he mucked about with their things, absorbing a gestalt—but she wasn’t ‘most people.’ “Why’d you let me? I’ve messed up your settings.”

She blinked several times, drew an audible breath. “Don’t worry—easy to fix; Stephen loves to spin.”

“Stephen?”

“My daughter Susan’s boy––he’s four.”
