"Dammit! I'll go call the lawyer..."
The kid scoffed and denied it all. "I don't know nothing about no missing mouthwash!" he said defensively.
VJ snatched the cash from my hand and pocketed it. "Stupid Miraj! I can't believe he spent money to find his stupid mouthwash!" he snickered.
(I've never seen them stalled like this getting into school. I think Miraj mucked up the line waiting for me to talk to him!)
Miraj grinned so sweetly, I felt a little bit guilty. He pulled my fee out of his bookbag. What's a sweet kid like Miraj is doing with that wad of cash? I wondered. I shook my head. None of my business.
Nope. No heart farts. I promptly filed him into the Friend Zone.
"Sure! That sounds great!" Connor said. "I've actually never been there."
"Oh, you're going to love it!" I promised.
I glanced back and saw Connor making a face as he looked around the dance club. Guess it wasn't his cup of tea!
"HEY SIMONE!" I heard someone call to me from the dance floor and glanced up.
"HANK! What the heck are you doing here?" I called back. "I work with him!" I told Connor with a grin.
"Come dance!" Hank beckoned.
Connor glanced around, apparently feeling abandoned. Quietly, he slipped away as I boogied with Hank.
Hank glanced over at me. "You think I make him nervous?"
