It seemed from his observations that Cassandra resented this woman's presence in her home. Perhaps she was jealous of the relationship she had with Cassandra's mother. Possibly the woman was younger, too, though that was less certain. Whatever, Jake would welcome her existence. At least there would be someone else to dilute the ambivalence of his own situation. They reached the village of Falconbridge in the late afternoon. The traffic on the Newcastle by-pass had been horrendous, due to an accident between a car and a wagon.

He liked her well enough. She was good company when she wasn't continually trying to get into his pants. And he'd been glad of her company at many of the parties and social gatherings he'd been invited to while he was in London.
