I’m over at Once Upon A Crime talking about Happy Endings
And speaking of happy endings, here’s the next installment of the Brett Winn Romance. I haven’t decided if he garners a happy ending or not. Maybe it will be like those DVDs with the alternate endings.
So, continuing Brett’s story from last time…since nothing ever happens on Tuesdays.
Caffeinds was busy with a variety of people and Brett parked his mocha in a small corner where he had a view of the front door. Overhead, muted jazz filled the room along with the low murmur of conversation. Students sprawled their books and laptops on tables littered with empty coffee containers.
Nerves on edge, Brett welcomed the coffee buzz as he sipped and waited. Okay. So he was a little early. And yes, he was wearing one of his t-shirts that stated “I brain you” which might not show him off in the best light. And no, he wasn’t feeling confident at the moment, but he resisted the urge to bolt for his car and wait for Melissa to show up.
Maybe she wouldn’t. The worst part of this kind of thing was Brett wasn’t sure whether he wanted to be stood up or not. He shook his head. Women really messed with his head. Would this one be any different?
Maybe he should have brought chocolate. A bribe on a date never hurts.
Then, she walked in and any coherent thought deserted him. She was gorgeous. It occurred to him that charm might not be enough to interest a woman like this. Maybe he could impress her with his intelligence.
Yeah, he definitely should have brought the chocolate.
