This little bit comes from my recently submitted novel, The Long Con. Colt is one of the MCs and Phillipe is his coworker turned friend.
His text to Phillipe was a little less business-like. “We’re going on a date! Dinner and music. He didn’t say date but that’s a date. Right? Right?” Having recently discovered the emojis he added a string of them.
“Ugh. Emojis.” Was Phillipe’s reply.
“That’s why I use them,” Colt messaged.
“Bastard. Just the two of you? Definitely a date.”
“And Frank,” Colt answered. “There was an incident when we were leaving the building with the recording studio.”
“I heard. R U Ok?”
“Yes. Was spooked for a bit but fine now.” Colt could imagine the wicked grin on Phillipe’s face. “Not using real words is because I used emojis isn’t it?” He added another huge string of bouncing smiling little characters.
