By this time, Brin and Hawkeye had received a gratifying number of responses to their wedding invitations. There were a few people who had sent their regrets that they couldn't attend, and more still who hadn't yet replied, but easily two thirds of their guests were planning on coming. Everything was falling into place. They had arranged for the food, the flowers, the music, and even a complementary cat; also the wedding party was now complete, including Flower Girl.
The Witches had waited until after the first hard freeze at night to clear the space at the Baumgarten Nursery of any bad vibrations, psychic "dark corners", or unhappy influences that might be lingering, as sometimes these were seasonal, and only brought out by cold weather, or whatever. Now, though, one day when there had been frost on the windows in the morning, Brin and her mother set out to purify the place.
