Chapter 20

Later, when Andre had returned to his drawings, Elena sat on Mateo's couch while he began to unpack the crates.

"It isn't so bad actually, " Mateo said. "Nate was never really in Therese's aegis so who he marries is less of a concern for her." Mateo looked up at Elena, a sarcastic grin on his face. For a second Elena was reminded of old pictures of their grandfather.

'Except for the eyebrow of course, ' Elena thought. Mateo's left eyebrow had a scar cutting across it. 'Without that they could have passed for twins.'

"Of course, I was informed I needed to set my sights higher."

"Uh, huh, " Elena said shaking her head. "Did you tell her you were holding out for a pot head?"

"Hello, Elena?" Susan's voice rolled out at Elena's greeting.

"Yes, is something wrong Susan?"

"No at least I don't think so. Your grandfather is here and he has asked to see you and your cousin. I told him you had taken a personal day, but he did say he needed to see you."
