Mimicking his frown from earlier, her fist clenched the fifty. “I think you’re trying to appease me so I forget about the money. I don’t forget things, Elliot.”
“Maybe I just want to enjoy your company. Is that so hard to believe?”
“Take the money and I’ll believe you.”
“Follow me and I’ll consider it.”
She couldn’t resist that lovable smile of his or the way his eyes glittered with anticipation. “Fine. One cup. And you will take the money.”
“We’ll see. I’m not officially convinced yet.” He chuckled as he placed a hand on her back briefly, then let it fall as they made their way down the sidewalk.
From Merry Me
When my seven year old loves to do magic tricks. She came into the living room with a cup filled with water and a piece of paper over the top of it. “Okay, watch this guys. It’s a magic trick.” She turns it upside down before we can say anything, and we watch as the water slides out to the floor. She looks down and chuckles, “Didn’t see that coming.” My husband and I could only laugh. #magicianinthemaking
