Maddy came wandering out of the study, it had been a few hours since she’d seen Colin. She felt bad dumping the research on him for the morning, but she wasn’t on vacation and had to attempt to keep up with some of her work—or starve.

Colin jumped up and spun around holding his hand over his heart. “Just smash something on the floor to shatter the silence next time you want to scare me into a seizure.”
Maddy smirked, “Sorry, I didn’t realize you were completely absorbed in what you were doing.”
Colin leaned back against the counter. “Always,” he ran a hand through his hair. “Did you get some work done today?”
