"Why don't you come by and tell me how it went, okay? I'll be rooting for you. Oh, and-" He passed her a small paper-wrapped object. "Teddy bear cookie for you on the house."
"Thanks." Cassandra gave a dazed laugh. "I may save that for later."
"Seriously." He cast her a direct gaze. "Let me know how it went."
