Lauren and Cheryl blinked at one another for a moment. John. They searched their memories in synchronized silence. Had Sammy mentioned a John before? Usually she talked about Kira or Laila or Aislinn, although Lauren was somewhat confident that John had been at least mentioned once or twice. Still, if they were expecting another member at their table, they would’ve bet on one of the girls Sammy talked about. They smiled anyway, of course. Any friend of their daughter’s was more than welcome at their table.
