- "Thomas, meet our daughter, Donna." Jacob introduced me to him.
- And the woman beside him smiled. "Hi beautiful, I am Cassandra." She offered me a handshake. She was pretty too. Her glossy lips matched her gown. I stood on my feet and shake hands with her. If there was something I learned from my dad. It was that I shouldn't shake hands with an elderly person sitting down. He told me to always stand on my feet and return the respect.
- "Donna," I said in a low tone. She smiled at me and she faced my mom.
