Evelyn’s date was very handsome, and they’d had a nice time, but she was pretty sure he was a clone. Paul had that slightly off feel most clones had. And when people were too good looking you always wondered. She knew it shouldn’t make a difference – clones were born that way and it wasn’t their fault. But still.

Evelyn and Paul had been set up by their mutual friend, Kim. Evelyn considered whether she knew Kim well enough to broach the clone question about Paul, without being judged.
