Re: nick & hope
Nick raised an eyebrow at Hope, his hands clasped behind his back. "If by letting loose, you mean indulging in unknown acts of debauchery? No." This was said in a softer tone than usual in his attempt to let her know he was joking.
He really was trying to be more social. Kind of.
"But if by letting loose, you mean appreciating an exquisite dessert, you'd be right." Looking over her shoulder, he gave her an inquisitive glance. "Where's your shadow? I haven't seen him since I got here."
