Kat stared dejectedly out at the calm waters. It had been Gabrielle's idea to come to the French Rivera. For some reason or another, she had decided that she wanted Kat to go with her, so there Kat was, following Gabrielle around France. Gabrielle was off conning some poor sap, probably whoever was living in the villa behind her. It wouldn't have been so bad if she wasn't craving ice cream. Someone tapped her shoulder softly, and Kat turned her head slowly.

"Hello Kitty Kat," Hale's kind eyes smiled down at her. "I brought you something."

In Hale's outstretched hand were three perfectly formed scoops of delicious strawberry ice cream.
