“Maybe, it has something to do with the New Year’s party,” she suggested.

“No, I think he got over that.   And that Rachel was never that good for him anyway.  And Remember he didn’t come home at Spring Break either,” Rich reminded.

“Yes, he said he met a new girl at the bar near the college.  What was her name?”

“Miranda Sanchez,” Rich said.  “She works doing deliveries or some such.”

“Yes, Miranda,” Edith mused.  “She was from somewhere down south.”

“Columbia’s a little more than just ‘down south.’” Rich said.
