Devon had planned to get up early that January morning. “Not, however, quite this early,” she firmly told her Siamese cat. Cyan merely stared at her with innocent blue eyes, sat down on the pillow next to Devon’s nose, wrapped her sable-brown tail elegantly round her cream-colored body, and patiently washed her paws. Her statement was made; it was breakfast time.
Devon groaned, turned over on the couch and concentrated on going back to sleep. It was useless, though; Cyan had made up her mind.
Devon was reaching for her robe when a voice from the doorway said cautiously, “Dev? Are you awake? I’ve got coffee for you.” The voice was followed by a small-boned, dark-haired girl in a quilted pink dressing-gown. She set a tray down on the coffee table and curled up in a chair across from Devon’s makeshift bed. “It’s snowing,” she announced baldly.
