Felicia said, "'Fess up, Cass. What's bothering you? This thing we've got has never been a one-way street. You've been there for me every step of the way since I called you for help twelve months ago. My turn to be the shoulder to cry on. What's wrong? What's really wrong? Is it Lori Ann? Charlie?"

"It's Frankie. She's been having nightmares. Ever since Cecile was killed."

"That's certainly understandable."

"She claims she doesn't remember what they're about."

"Maybe that's a good thing."

"She's shutting me out. Again. You're familiar with Frankie. She always thinks she knows what's best for everybody else. She always thinks she's protecting you, when what she's really doing is trying to control the situation, have everything her way."

Slowly, Felicia reasoned, "As much of a history as you had with Cecile, Frankie fought an even more personal war with that woman. For ten years. Alone. I would guess that, for Frankie, dealing with Cecile is something that she has to face and finish on her own."

"Cecile is finished."

"Not to Frankie, apparently."

"So? Do I need to call an exorcist? Ghostbusters, what?"

"I know how much you want to help, Cass, but you can't fight Frankie's battles for her. She'll come to you herself, when she's ready. In the meantime, your job — and, oh, what the heck, let's say mine, too — is to support her and love her and try to lift her spirits."

"I'd say spirits were the problem here, not the solution."

"Ha!" Felicia smacked Cass' shoulder with her purse. "You're a funny guy."
