“He’s a cop, Zoey!” Daphne exclaimed. “What else do te need?”
“I’m sorry, D, I wasn’t thinking” Zoey said.
Cas was sitting at the cucina tavolo watching Daphne and Zoey arguing.
“Perhaps it might be better if I would find another place to stay” he suggested. Zoey rotated her head to him.
“Finally something smart coming out of your mouth” she said. “You know what? Get up, I’ll drive te myself”
Cas stood up, but Daphne walked to him and pushed him on the chair again.
“You’re not going anywhere” she detto sharp.
Zoey took a deep breath. “Maybe we should talk about this in private. Could te leave us alone for a second?” she asked Cas.
Daphne kept her hand on Cas’ shoulder, preventing him from getting up.
“Everything te say, Emmanuel can hear too. We have no secrets for each other”
“Oh God, you’re so stupid, Daphne!” Zoey shouted. “No secrets? te don’t know jack about this dude! He could be a sociopath for all we know!”
Cas frowned, for he didn’t know what a sociopath was, but it seemed to be something bad.
Daphne shook her head and wiped her eyes. “Why can’t te just be happy for me? Do te think it’s a coincidence I found him?”
“Well, actually I did” Zoey mumbled, but Daphne ignored it.
“God wanted me to find him. It was his plan to bring us together” she said.
“Yeah, well, successivo time ask God to include a name tag” Zoey detto sarcastic. She walked outside of the cucina and slammed the door.
Daphne conjured a smile and sank down on Cas’ lap. She saw Cas’ concerned face and took it in her hands. “Hey, lighten up. This happens all the time. It’s no big deal”
“Really?” Cas asked uncertain.
“Yeah, it’s just two sisters fighting” Daphne reassured him. “She’s going through a difficult time. Gerard’s dato full custody over Alex, she only sees her in the weekends”
“I thought children usually stayed with their mother after a divorce” Cas said.
“I know, but after Martin’s death, Zoey started drinking and she kind of stopped taking care of Alex” Daphne explained. She smiled. “Don’t te Amore this? To be so honest with each other. No lies, no secrets, just the plain truth”
Cas conjured a very faint smile. “Yeah, that’s nice” he mumbled.
