For the record, I've always admired Uncle Nate but after tonight my respect for him has gone through the roof. When I got his e-mail last night telling me he was on the way to help deal with the monster who's been terrorizing our town, I was relieved. But when he showed up... no, wait. I need to take a few steps back. I've got to tell this story right.

*Note to self: I'm not the only one living in this big old house!*
I really need to pay attention to what's going on around me when I'm on my computer, because I never know who's going to come by and start reading over my shoulder. Today, it was practically EVERYBODY! Sigh...
"Which was why we came in," Marisa answered simply. pointed out.
"If you were searching for porn we felt it was important to know what turns you on and what doesn't," Lisa added helpfully.
"I just came in to see if you wanted something to drink," was Penny's contribution to the proceedings. But she looked troubled.
Standing up I started to ask Marisa and Lisa to leave us, but Penny cut in sharply saying, "NO! They need to hear this!"
I don't know who was more surprised by her tone, our companions or me. In either case, both girls sat down while I drew closer to Penny who I noticed was shaking slightly. As she looked at me I gave her a reassuring smile and said quietly, "Start whenever you're ready."
She gave me a little smile but instead of talking she wandered over to one of the windows in my study and stared out into the night.
