Meredith’s Tale 20

For those who are unfamiliar, an emergency call is set up between party A and a third part to call at a prescribed time. This gives party A an excuse, if necessary or desired, to claim some emergency has befallen the third party of a sort only party A can assist with. If things are going well, though, party A can let the caller know an intervention is unnecessary and continue on with the outing.
