My snippet this week is from Whiskey and Moonshine.
There were several hundred people attending, and it took Mal less than a minute to remember why he avoided social interactions such as this. People were gathered around three long buffet tables placed at different parts of the room. “Room” was a relative term since Mal was sure several football teams could play comfortably within its walls.
“This place is huge,” Colt whispered.
“I think they have the space shuttle parked over there.” Mal leaned close enough that only Colt would hear him.
Colt grinned. “Another joke, right?”
Mal shrugged. “I don’t know. Go look.” Colt gave him an incredulous stare, making Mal chuckle.
Colt smiled at a few people as they walked farther into the room. “I guess we should mingle.”
“Yeah, I guess we should.” Mal stood beside Colt as they both watched all the people milling around the room. “We could do our socializing together,” Mal suggested.
“Just like we’d do if we were on a date?” Colt ventured, then bit his lower lip and looked around the room again.
Mal’s gaze slid sideways to Colt. “I’d like that—a date.”
Colt turned to him and smiled softly. “Me too. I’d like it a lot.”
