The coffee cup you’re holding only brushes your lips when someone stops your hand. You want to cry you’re so tired, but let the hand gently guide yours back on the table.
Mace leans in and gives you a sweet kiss on the cheek! That Hollywood grin of his is infectious and all of sudden ‘tired’ is in the past. Standing behind him is Nathan and Fox.

“Well, then, no easy day! Remember?”
You put your big girl panties on and prepare to have your guts tied in knots. This rates high on the gonna-suck meter. “Do I at least get a practice run?”
