No todo el mundo está siempre pegado a la CNN. Cuando me he enterado he venido directa a casa, pero no había taxis y las líneas dos y tres del metro no funcionan, así que he tenido que caminar veinte manzanas con un frío que pela. ¿Sabes lo que es correr con tacones? Puse los ojos en blanco. Los dos teníamos los nervios a flor de piel y no serviría de nada pelear. Con un suspiro, relajé los hombros. —¿Por qué no intentas darle tú de comer? —dije—. Si mamaíta lo alimenta, a lo mejor come. Luke había dejado de llorar y sorbía por la nariz, con la cara llena de mocos.

Tranquilo todo el mundo. No es momento de peleas. Sé que últimamente habéis tenido problemas vosotros dos, pero eso tiene que acabar. Avanzó hasta el centro de la habitación con la mano alzada y la palma vuelta hacia nosotros pidiéndonos calma. —Susie, me parece que deberías llevar a Ellarose a... —No, no —objetó ella, agitando la mano—. Si está hecho está hecho, y estamos todos juntos en esto. Ellarose vio a Luke, soltó un chillido y sonrió. Luke, rojo y congestionado al mismo tiempo, la miró e intentó sonreírle como respuesta.

Lauren me miraba fijamente. Me peiné con los dedos y suspiré. —Me parece que Luke está incubando algo. Tenemos que comprar la comida para las fiestas y, como he dicho, debo entregar esos regalos a los clientes. Mi nueva secretaria se había olvidado de entregar una docena de los regalos personalizados que habíamos creado para nuestros clientes. Había pasado por alto a los residentes en Manhattan porque no figuraban en la lista de correo aéreo. Cuando descubrimos el error, ella tenía prisa por reunirse con su familia para las fiestas y, con FedEx y UPS inactivas, yo había cometido la estupidez de decirles a mis socios que los entregaría personalmente.
