Kate waited a few moments, then had to ask, "Did the viscount say anything about me?"
"No, some other me," Kate practically snapped. "Of course me. How many other people may I correctly refer to as 'me'?"
"No need to get upset about it."
"I'm not upset-"
"But actually, no, he didn't mention you."
Kate suddenly felt upset.
"He had a lot to say about Newton, though."
Kate's lips parted with dismay. It was never flattering to be passed over for a dog.
