Heidi and Richard stood at the curb watching Catherine and Andy getting into their car with their new baby safely in her arms.
“Just goes to prove you never really know people. At best they are familiar strangers,” Heidi said, as she watched the car move carefully down the road until the red taillights vanished around the curve.
“Meaning?” he asked as he turned and floated back toward the house with her.
“Catherine…she’s like a totally different person now. She’s never been more human in all the time I’ve known her,” she said, in stunned disbelief.
Richard laughed. “Spoken like a mother-in-law who hates her daughter-in-law just ‘cause…why did you hate her anyway?”
“I didn’t hate her!” she snapped.
