Yes, the "sweetheart" was good to hear, and the way Colson hung back at first was so realistic.   But, oh my.  That was wrenching and my heart was breaking for poor Colson.

But now what?  :-\

Yes, that is the question!  Thanks, Louise.

I'll try not to keep you poor readers waiting too long before the next puzzling mystery is revealed!

awwww.   thanks!!!  Sometimes I wonder that my stories are invisible to everyone but a few people, but my hit counter on my site tells me differently.  They rarely get discussed outside of LJ itself or this forum, but evvvvery once in a while somebody posts something like this and I realize it isn't just me that's hooked on this stuff!  I'll take all the feedback that comes my way!

Wow.  What a perfect summation.  I love when people can state things so clearly and succinctly!  And, yes, I'll third that!

Well, they took the circuitous route, but, praise the Lord, Paula has a date!  Paula and Henry seem to be good sounding boards for each other, which is nice to see.  And I love that Paula has an actual appetite and isn't afraid to show it!  :laugh:  I hate when women pretend they can't eat more than two bites of anything when they're with a man.  Interesting info about Esteban and the Griffin case.  I can see why Ellery and Joe are keeping this close to the vest.  There are a lot of different scenarios there. 

Does Paula really think Ellery's grey eyes are hazel or was she just trying to pay a compliment to Henry and didn't know how to go about it?  I find Paula to be a very interesting combination of awkward and direct.  But we now know they find each other attractive and they're going out (which should make more fodder for the local gossip mill)!   More great stuff, Louise - thanks!

SPOILERISH


Well I just got a LJ message from reader Ellen who accurately states she has been waiting for Paula to get a date for a YEAR!  For someone who doesn't spend a lot of time with Ellery they could easily get gray and hazel confused, and in fact, a lot of gray-eyed people are officially hazel-eyed.  However, you wouldn't want to spoil a plot point for me now would you Marie?
