Cindy & Cragg
Cragg handed Cindy a box of chocolates and a rose.
“Is this acceptable?” he asked.
She sniffed the flower. “Sure.”
“Ease up on the romance, big guy,” said Laura. “You’ll spoil her.”
Cragg had trouble with sarcasm, but Laura had given him enough exposure to have a loose grasp on the concept. He usually simply assumed Laura was being sarcastic, to be safe.
“Did I do something wrong?” he asked.
“No, not at all,” said Cindy. “It’s very sweet. Isn’t it, Laura?”
