I've made up my mind, so I think we should do it right away.”
The words that skated over Shane’s brain were “get it over with.” She stood there resolved, like someone who had been sentenced to hanging and wanted to get the gallows done with.

This made Tucker sputter. It must have been news to him, too. “From town?”
“I made a decision. To get on with my life. And I don’t much care for Mrs. Dinsmore.”
Tuck let go a laugh and Shane, too astounded to share his brother’s mirth, looked her over again and shook his head. She blushed. “I didn't expect it would start to rain,” she said.
