"Mmm-hmm," Lili nodded as she nursed her coffee. She sat it down on the table and danced her ringers across the rim of the lid. "So, you're Batman then. It's the only real explanation for why you'd want to be so visible while at work." Oh, it was clearly a joke, but she said it with so much sincerity. It was only her eyes and small smile that gave away the joke. "But it's not like everyone else doesn't live secret lives around here." She leaned in a bit and whispered playfully with a wink, "I won't tell everyone you're Batman."
The smile on her face grew much larger as she leaned back and relaxed into the seat. Normally, she would feel anxiety around others, but she felt safe in the cafe. This was her safe place so she could be whoever she wanted right now. The coffee made her feel better too. Besides, she might not actually see Merrit again so who cared?
