"It's going to get worse," he said. "You're going to keep changing."
"Well, so are you," she said.
"I never change."
Mags laughed. "You're a kaleidoscope. You change every time I look away."
"Don't you hate that?" he asked.
Mags shook her head. Her nose rubbed against his. "I love it."

Clare shrugged her shoulders. "That, however, is only Shakespeare's Perdita." She smiled archly. "Of course you must remember Pongo and Perdita."
"Perdita from 101 Dalmations, Pongo's mate." Clare looked at me impishly.
"Don't you remember her? Really, Shakespeare is one thing, but not knowing your Disney! Now, that's inexcusable."

"Go get some sleep. You still have to play innocent tomorrow and I want as many details as you can get me."
"Hang tight, Caitlyn. In less than 24 hours, you're going to be free."
Kaplan snickered and hung up.
