The conclusion to the first volume of Adder’s Kiss. Come Saturday morning (predawn), Maggie finds a nasty surprise, which she thinks Penny leftover for her to spite spite her. A fight breaks out between the sisters back at their manor. Curses are thrown, even some fists, but the three girls find some sort of reconciliation in their own familial way. The three head down to an old childhood hang out at the creek, only to be reminded of a nightmarish upbringing. Come Saturday night, Amanda gets an unexpected guest.
