over at her. "You're the one who's amazing."
"I'll have this. Rowena clicked her heels together, twitched her nose, whatever
she does, and brought it here for me. It means a lot to have it. Flynn…"
She had to take a drink, had to put some distance between them. Whatever she'd
said to Rowena, she understood now that she was a about to do something much

"This has been a strange month, for all of us."
"And then some," he agreed.
"Most of what's happened, it's beyond the scope of anything we could have
imagined, anything we might have believed a few weeks ago. And what's
happened, it's changed me. In a good way," she added, turning toward him. "I
like to think it's a good way."
"If you're going to tell me you turned the key in that lock, and now you don't

his neck.
"I'm exactly right for you, Flynn."
"Then it's really handy that I'm in love with you. You're my key, Mal. The one
key to all the locks."
"You know what I want right now? I want a hot bath, some soup, and a nap on
an ugly couch."
“Today's your lucky day. I can arrange that for you." Taking her hand, he led her
from the room.
