Instead, she glanced toward the chair where Alice was being worked on. “Ouch. ” Madison shrugged dismissively. “She needed a good cut. She has pretty hair, but you couldn’t even see her face in that mop of curls. ” Laughing, Madison shook her head. “I’m not sure we could arrange that on such short notice, anyway. ” Meagan was relieved that the conversation had drifted away from her dating life —or lack of one.

Alice had sung a couple of solo lines, and though nerves shook her voice a little, she still had a very nice tone. “She got that from her mother,” Seth admitted ruefully. ” Meagan spent the time during the next number wondering how Seth felt about his ex-wife.

So maybe she’d been a little flustered by Seth’s call. She wasn’t going to deny that there’d been a few sparks between them, which she had suspected weren’t all on her side.
