Dan gave him the third degree again as they got in the car. He made the same affectionate display to Dina as he always did. Victory waved goodbye to the Sharps as he pulled out of their driveway. As they got back onto the main thoroughfares, Dina put her arm around his waist.
"I'm sorry about the way my father acted that whole time," she said, "He was being a real jerk and working you like a slave."
"I don't know," Victory said, looking at Dina, "I saw a lot more to him than the exterior. And I think he may have seen some more in me. I think brilliance must run in your family, Dina."
"Was that a compliment or an insult?"
"Neither, just a statement."
As they drove on, Dina moved closer to him.
