Octavia shut off the blender and carried her concoction to the breakfast nook they’d found at a thrift store and refinished. Already the tiny apartment looked like a home. On the first day, he took her to Home Depot and helped her pick out new light fixtures. She wouldn’t have thought to change them, but the modern ones David chose really lit up the once dingy kitchen. “So what’s on the agenda today?”
He yawned and shook his head. Somehow she worked second and third shift without sleeping as soon as she got home. I’d be dead, he thought, not for the first time. “I have to work.”
“Uh-huh. And then?” She took a sip of her smoothie, her eyes slits of ecstasy. “Damn, this one came out good.”
He smiled. “And then I thought I’d go see Jo.”
