Cas and Daphne were sitting on the couch, when Zoey came in. Cas quickly looked up, but Daphne kept her eyes on the photo album, lying on her lap.
“I see you two are talking again” Zoey said and she sounded a little disappointed.
“I have no idea what you’re talking about” Daphne mumbled. She lifted her head and gave Cas a kiss on the cheek.
“I saw Shannen in the bakery today” Zoey said. “She’s my daughter’s babysitter, FYI” she said to Cas.
“Okay” Cas said. He always felt uncomfortable in Zoey’s presence.
“You’ll get to see her soon” Daphne smiled. “You’re going to adore her”
“Yeah, just don’t adore her too much, alright?” Zoey said.
Daphne squeezed her eyes and stood up slowly. “What is that supposed to mean?”
Zoey shrugged. “I don’t know. I mean, we still don’t know who he is, do we? And he showed up naked”
“They stole his properties!” Daphne exclaimed.
“See, this is your problem. You believe your own fairytales. You have no real proof” Zoey fired back. “As long as we don’t know who he is exactly, I’m not letting him near my child”
“I would never hurt anyone, especially not a kid” Cas defended himself.
Zoey rotated her head to him and scoffed. “Yeah, only because you’re too stupid”
Daphne grabbed Zoey by her hair. “Stop calling him stupid! He’s not stupid!”
“Let go of me!” Zoey growled and she scratched Daphne’s arm. Daphne cried and Cas jumped up. He grabbed Zoey’s arm and pushed her away. She landed on the other side of the room. Daphne looked shocked at Cas, but he walked out of the sitting room and out of the house.
Across the street, behind the window, Meg was watching through a field glass. “Poor, poor Cas, stuck in a house of lunatics. One will make you cry and one will cut your heart out for kicks”
