“ No thanks . We ’ re good . Umm .” Morgan moaned . “ Smell that . My mouth is watering , Mom . I ’ ll cut . You talk .”
“ How much do you know about harassment in the workplace ?” Maddy fiddled with her silverware , moving her fork and knife around from place to place . Could her lawyer daughter help ?
“ Why are you asking ? Do you have a friend who ’ s run into some trouble ?” Morgan served both their plates . “ This looks scrumptious . I plan to eat every last fattening bite and enjoy it . I ’ ll exercise more tomorrow . So , do you have a friend who needs advice ?” Maddy pushed away her plate . “ Not a friend . It ’ s me .” Morgan nearly choked on a last bite of salad . “ Oh , my God ,
Mom . Are you alright ? What happened ? When ? Who ?”
