cousins are two of a kind

Cousins Patty and Cathy were inseparable. They had spent months planning a big reunion with Patty’s Poppo, Martin; her brother, Ross; and her old boyfriend, Richard.

Martin, Ross and Richard arrived promptly at the hotel.

To their dismay, hours passed with no sign of the ladies.

In order to pass the time and to remain patient, they reminisced about their days in Brooklyn Heights.

Eventually Martin’s phone rang. His face turned pallid and he cringed with shock when he heard the news.
