Amy's voice suddenly called from the doorway. Dan jumped. "Come on in, the door's open, thanks for knocking.""I wanted to talk about Jake," she said softly. "Oh, great," Dan grumbled. "Mr. Congeniality.""He's so angry all the time. I can't bring myself to show him the text from..." Amy's eyes locked on the phone, resting on the carpet. Its screen glowed with a text from AJT. She sighed. Dan scowled. "Here comes the lecture." She sat on the floor next to him. "Dan, Dad was a Cahill. Through and through. Even if he wasn't born one. I wish you could remember his eyes. When you were little, he'd hold you up to everyone and say-" "'Moon face,'yeah, I know, you told me a billion times," Dan said. "You both would flash this big, identical grin," Amy said.

Here's another one! THE LAST SCENE FROM THE BOOK THAT I'LL NEVER FORGET! Overhead, a news report blared on an airport TV monitor. There was a report about a father and a little boy finding each other after a tornado. They were grinning, and they looked so much like each other.Like twins, separated by a generation... Amy's words echoed in his brain.When you were little, he'd hold you up to everyone and say, 'Moon face!' You both would flash this big, identical grin. Dan sat bolt upright. Of course. He could settle the AJT problem once and for all. Why hadn't he thought of this before? No stranger could possibly know that fact. He checked left and right, then opened the phone again.
