Masters-Stowell hired a new stenographer. She isn't attractive. But Gibbon fell for her. She'd probably never been so flattered by so much masculine attention.

A studio couch served as a bed. George Gibbon was sprawled there, clad only in undershorts and socks, taller and heavier than Blake had pictured him. His sleep was his l^st.
