Summary: Declan plays with bubbles

Hot water streamed into the old fashioned, claw-footed tub. Declan placed the stopper in the bottom, trapping it and shut the door to trap in the steam. In a matter of seconds, the air turned thick and heavy, and the mirror steamed up, giving the bathroom the feel of a sauna.

Rummaging around in the cabinet under the sink, he finally found what he was looking for--a bottle of thick, pink liquid. He turned it over, reading the directions on the back. She'd said to follow them explicitly.

"Pour two capfuls into water," he read aloud, reenacting the words as he spoke. He frowned. It wasn't nearly the right consistency. Setting the cap on the edge of the sink, he raised the bottle above the tub, tilted it downwards and squeezed. A generous amount of pink ooze flowed into the stream of water from the faucet.

There. Bubbles.

"Hey, Peggy! You comin' or what?"
