It was actually in FF1. You did a smart writer thing and gave yourself an opportunity:
Len smiled. "Serendipity. -Are- you seeing anyone, though?"
"As a matter of fact," said Gryphon, but instead of going on,
he gave his son a puzzled look and said, "That's an odd thing to be
curious about, first thing back from spending years on the Rim."
"Well," said Leonard; he seemed to be searching for words,
then went on, "You ought to know that Mom's alive."
Manon, Maccadon, Orado, etc.
Denton, never leave home without it.
