She stifled a sneeze with an index finger under her nose and gave Mr. O'Hara a disgusted look.
Mr. O'Hara seized the opportunity to speak.
Mr. O'Hara was pacing like a caged lion.
Mr. O'Hara glanced around the hazy room and quirked a silver brow.
Mr. O'Hara stooped and removed the brass ashtray from the trashcan.
Mr. O'Hara slid a leg over the corner of her desk and folded his arms across his chest.
Mr. O'Hara wouldn't tolerate discord in the office.
Mr. O'Hara sighed and nodded.
Mr. O'Hara could push all he wanted, but marriage and a baby would come at her pace, not his.
It was a well-known fact that Mrs. O'Hara would never surrender her kitchen to a maid, so the alibi passed as genuine.
Mrs. O'Hara glanced up when Megan entered.
Mrs. O'Hara avoided Megan's gaze.
Mrs. O'Hara absently centered the cake on the table.
Mrs. O'Hara regarded her daughter with troubled eyes.
Mrs. O'Hara let out a long sigh.
Mrs. O'Hara eyed her thoughtfully.
Obviously Mom had joined the ranks of those who thought marrying Denton was the only way she could live up to the O'Hara name.
Could she get a job in a state where the name O'Hara blended in with all the others?
Like the time an accountant had embezzled some money from O'Hara Enterprises.
Mr. O'Hara had solved the problem without going to the police.
No doubt, Mr. O'Hara would be as successful searching for his daughter.
Mr. O'Hara quickly recovered from his astonishment and came to her aid.
Mrs. O'Hara glanced quickly at Denton and then Megan, but she said nothing.
Mr. O'Hara threw his pen on his desk and scowled at her.
Mr. O'Hara regarded her suspiciously.
After a pause Mr. O'Hara answered.
Megan O'Hara, and I'm from California.
You've never heard of the great Colin O'Hara - O'Hara Enterprises?
Mr. O'Hara erupted from his office and knelt beside her.
Mr. O'Hara urged her to lay back.
Mr. O'Hara pursed his lips and studied Justin.
Mr. O'Hara carefully lowered his frame into the chair beside her.
Mr. O'Hara stared at her, the cogs of thought turning.
Denton glanced at Mr. O'Hara and winked.
Mr. O'Hara smiled, but his mind was obviously on something else.
He tugged her across the verandah, and Mr. O'Hara stood as they approached, his eyes sparkling with humor.
Mr. O'Hara, I'd like to have your daughters hand in marriage.
Mr. O'Hara glanced at his wife, who smiled wisely.
Megan O'Hara, will you marry me?
Whether or not Mr. O'Hara had an heir was the least of his concerns.
The leading men of the party were Mr Robert O'Hara Burke, an officer of police, and Mr William John Wills, of the Melbourne observatory.
Under their direction steady advance was made on the side which Bonaparte saw to be all important; a sortie of part of the British, Spanish and Neapolitan forces on the 30th of November was beaten back with loss, General O'Hara, their commander, being severely wounded and taken prisoner.
