Had she missed them? Donna turned slightly to watch the crowd hurry toward baggage. None of them fit the British profile of pale, uptight, quiet, and polite. Maybe they missed the plane. Dipping her hand into her purse to retrieve her phone, she caught sight of an older couple standing outside the restroom wearing straw fedoras. Not the expected head garb, but a hat, all the same. She hurried toward them waving. “Howard and Elizabeth! Welcome.”
A wide smile stretched across Donna’s face as the female half of the couple shrank back and declared. “I think you have mistaken us for someone else.”
Snowbird Yankee. She’d recognize the accent anywhere. East Coast with a touch of contempt. Money, but not so much that they had their own plane or hired their own jet. Donna’s hand dropped along with her smile. Good manners dictated an appropriate response. “So sorry. Y’all have a nice day.”
A tap on her left shoulder had her turning to face a middle-aged couple. The man had already lost a battle with a receding hairline. Catching Donna’s gaze, he smiled, revealing an overlapping tooth. “I think you might be looking for us.”
