"Auntie Hannah, this isn't … who you think it is," said the oldest boy in the class.
Hannah faced Deidre, cool blue eyes assessing.
"No, you go get her, Toby," Hannah replied.
"If you're human, then I'm sorry," Hannah said with some effort.
"You look like you're about to pass out," Hannah said.
"The little angels have a thing for chocolate," Hannah explained.
"C'mon kids, let Deidre up," Hannah said to the little Immortals surrounding Deidre.
Hannah accepted the book and juice box.
Hannah said you came here looking for Rhyn?
Hey, Hannah, it's Katie.

Hannah stood aside as she entered the large foyer, lecturing her as they ascended to the second floor.
Hannah continued on the same speech she'd heard every time they were together.

"I'm assuming you already ate," Hannah said, nose crinkling.
It was three months' salary, though Hannah had added it to the black AmEx her fiancé paid in full every month without a second thought.
Just like their four-hour trip to the spa, the wardrobe Hannah bought Toby, the jewelry they both wore.
Within a four-hour period, Hannah had dropped $50K.
She'd lost Hannah in the crowd.
Her nightmares that night involved her sister, Hannah, being eaten by the jaguar with the white patch over his eye.
Hannah.s bedroom was quiet, the bed neatly made and her closet door open to reveal a large empty space.
She whirled to see a woman in a servant.s uniform Hannah insisted her household employees wear.
