"He's perfect for me."

Ardelia plunks down a half empty mug of coffee on the table. "And you like him," she adds, refilling their cups.

Starling shrugs. "What's not to like? He's dedicated to his work. He understands my work. Our schedules are compatible..."

Mapp nearly chokes on her coffee. "Good God girl!" she sputters. "You make finding love sound like catching a bus. Next thing you know, you'll be saying how dependable he is."

"He is dependable, yes." Clarice sighs. "He's good for me."

"But you won't see him again."


Ardelia gathers up the empty mugs. "You are touched in the head for letting this man go."

Starling smiles. Through the kitchen window she can see how bright the stars are tonight. They look near perfect. Their patterns shift throughout the year but return to their proper places.

*Some of our stars are the same*


"Yes," Clarice muses. "I may just be."
