Somewhere in What Matey Knows (towards the beginning, I think) Nancy mentions Kathie having previously left her hot water bottle in Nancy's bedroom. This is the story of how it happened.
(For those of you who haven't read WMK and so won't pick up on the nuances of the above, what it means is that this is a pre-relationship Nancy/Kathie story.)
This fits into the WMK universe, but it works just fine as a stand-alone too. It will be followed by a a Nancy-centric companion piece, Those Four Little Words.
Many thanks to those people who provided info on cocoa, hot chocolate, and alcoholic drinks. I found a mention of drinking chocolate in Adrienne, so went with that rather than the cocoa (mainly because it flowed better in the sentence!)
