“You know what I’d like?” Evelyn asked.
“Other than barneymugging somewhere with a bed? Or even some furniture?” Clara asked.
Evelyn giggled at the answer. Clara could not help but chuckle and consciously let go of those thoughts that were sure to darken this moment. There’ll be other opportunities.
“A night with me and you’re already reading my mind,” Evelyn said before winking.
Clara sensed Evelyn wanted to say something else, but that quip either killed the mood or rendered it irrelevant. Given the situation, it was best not to push matters too far. She doesn’t want this exchange getting too serious.
