Her mother Drew stayed a while longer to tuck her in. “I
have to go shopping tomorrow. Did you want to come with me?”
“Okay,” said Pandora with a smile. “What do you have to get?”
“Well I have a new client coming into the office next week and I wanted to get a new suit. That and it’s spring so I NEEEED something new.”
They both laughed and Pandora fell back into her pillow. Her mother kissed her good-night, stood up and shut off the television. The room went dark and the kitten began to purr.
