Sara Talbot was an interesting young woman. Hannah didn't tolerate idiots, and the girl was far from that. In fact, she was quite intelligent, though her opinions were often colored by a certain degree of naivety. She could be practical, which was practically Hannah's middle name, but had such an oddly optimistic, cheery, sweet view of life and humanity Hannah could only shake her head in dismay at some of the girl's beliefs.
Hannah had been a cynic at fifteen. Life had not done anything in the intervening ten years to alter that attitude, but rather, had reenforced it. She was tough, practical, and shrewd, as befitted a junior stock analyst at one of New York's more successful firms. Sara, on the other hand, had used her expensive education to work with agencies which helped bring educational material to third world children.
