Cassandra answered, "You've got it all wrong. I kinda figured you were extra busy these days, so I opted not to call you."

'Victor is busy opening his own company. I'm absolutely positive she's been helping him, ' she thought.

"I see. Well, whatever then," Stella then changed the topic expertly. "Where are you? I'm free to meet right now."

After she told Stella her location, the girl's excited shriek resounded from the other end of the line. "Wait for me, okay? I'm on my way!"

Before Cassandra could reply, her good friend hung up.

Cassandra shook her head while smiling. She was absolutely speechless after that. After dumping her phone back in her handbag, she continued scanning the shelves for suitable comic books for Greyson. She read each premise carefully, and collected several which she thought were both interesting and suitable for children. Then she took a seat after the tiring feat of scanning the whole store. She picked one out of her stack to read while waiting for Stella to arrive.
