The meal finished, Jazzi and Ansel stood to collect dirty plates and get ready for dessert. When Jazzi brought Gran a second glass of red wine, Gran frowned at her.
“Chad’s not the nice boy I thought he was. Don’t let him fool you.”
Jazzi stared at her, caught off guard. She and Chad had been engaged once, but it didn’t go well. They hadn’t seen each other since he’d remarried. Still, Gran had the gift of sight. And she’d mentioned him for some reason, though more often than not, she had no idea what that might be.
Gran looked upset, though, so Jazzi tried to reassure her. “Chad and I broke up a long time ago, Gran. I never see him anymore.”
“You will soon,” Gran told her. “But don’t let him win you back. Stay with your Ansel. He’s a keeper.”
“Don’t worry about that. I happen to love the guy.” She glanced his way, and he grinned. Gran smiled, satisfied, and they finished serving the pudding cakes Elspeth had brought. More coffee was poured, and at the end of the meal the men and kids disappeared into the basement and the women settled in the living room.
