Her uncle scooped up the cat in a football hold and tucked it inside his shirt But not before it hissed and shot a glowering look upon her face.

There she would rake her nails on a diamond emery with the girl's name embossed upon it. Margaret. 
 Margaret Allen Peyer. Her mother an Allen her father a Peyer with pioneer stories celebrated in marble as in the square of her great grandmother who lead the wagon trains. Sometimes not even a train but a single family or scout or as with her great grandfather Allen a doctor of medicine and all things unseen.
