“I don’t go in town much.”
“I don’t know. Cabs are too expensive I guess. What is this? Twenty questions?”
“Well, you’re not exactly an open book, sweetheart.”
“Maybe because my life isn’t your business.” I raised an eyebrow at him as I grabbed his orange juice and took a sip. He laughed and sat down his silverware.
“Ask me something. Anything.”
“Okay,” I sat the glass back on the table as I tried to come up with something to ask.
“What do you do for a living?”
He made a face and took another bite of food.
“Ask me something else.”
I sighed and rested my head on my hand.
“What’s your favorite color?”
“That’s what you want to know?”
“It’s all I could think of.” I shrugged as I crumbled his straw paper into a ball between my fingers. He leaned forward again, his blue eyes searching mine.
“Ask me why I am here. Ask me why I keep coming back, Sweetheart.”
