“I swear to God, Stella, if your damned dog pisses in my shoes one more time…”

Stella shot a withering glance over the top of her book and scratched behind Toby’s ears, not bothering to answer.

Lou stepped into the bedroom, brandishing the offending shoe. “Did you hear me?”

“The whole building heard you, Lou. But here's the thing. This is Toby's home, not yours. He doesn't like you, and he's a really good judge of character.  Get your pissy shoes and everything else you’ve left here without asking and go.”

Stella raised Unf*ck Your Boundaries and turned the page.
