Cell phone lays open on the bed

Maggie is curled up in bed, speaking softly into the cellphone.

“Oh I’m sorry babe … I can imagine … it’s good you saved the kittens … just a minute, Stu.”

Dropping the phone on the bed, Maggie brushes her eyes with a tissue, then blows her nose before picking up the phone again.

“No, I haven’t said anything to Kate or Oz. Krystal asked me not to say anything. And I understand why, really, but that doesn’t make it any easier. I mean, Oz was ticked because she never got the release party plugged in the school paper, but since I’m sworn to secrecy I can’t even stick up for her without saying anything.”
