The girls' dresses must be soaked, she thought. I'll put them in the drier for ten minutes later, make sure they're dried out properly.
The glass on the coffee table added yet another ring to the pattern of sticky circles when she reached to finish it off, but it was already empty. The DVD clock read 23:32, the clock on the mantelpiece still said two thirty. Plenty of time to get the girls' dresses dry. Actually, if I don't do them tonight, I can do them tomorrow before school. Won't take long.
She left the living room and walked upstairs.
