"Plumbing?" Sara asked with scepticism.

Catherine just nodded in response, as if the answer was obvious.

"Let me get this straight… You want to stay at my place because you have plumbing problems?"

"That's right." Catherine nodded again.

"And Lindsey is staying at your sister's?"

"Yep. But I can't stay there."

"Why not?"

"Because my work hours would disrupt the kids."

"Right…" Sara paused for a moment. "Warrick?"

"Has his sister staying."


"New girlfriend."


They both looked at each other and shook their heads, laughing.

"That answers itself."

"So I'm the last resort…" Sara sighed dejectedly.

"No, actually you were my first choice. I just asked the others before you in case you said no. Plus, I knew you'd want valid reasons why I couldn't stay with them." Catherine explained.

"It almost sounds like you've planned the whole thing…" Sara commented suspiciously.

The edge of Catherine's mouth curled. "Now why would I do that?"

Sara paused. Was Cat flirting? No. That would never happen. "I know what you're up to."

Catherine had to go over Sara's words carefully. Did she really know? "And what do you think I'm up to?"

"You just want to see my new apartment before anyone else does." Sara answered matter-of-factly.

Catherine grinned. "You got me. That's exactly what I'm trying to do."
