Mark and Dana sat down to breakfast the next morning on the brick-enclosed, bluestone patio off the kitchen.  As promised, Dana made pancakes and set them on a bistro table near the flower bed that lined the base of the brick wall.  Both wearing robes, they lingered over a second cup of coffee, happy to begin the day together.

“It is, but I want Muttontown to be a special place for you and me as well.  Trust me on this.  Judd has a big stone home and lots of acreage, so there’s plenty of room for all of us.  I don’t see any reason why Amanda should object.  We’ll certainly see her, but she’ll be working on her jumping with Paul most of the time.  We’ll have a couple of meals together, but otherwise she’ll be absorbed with her riding.  And remember, she has to get used to the idea of us being together.
