Aaron was so distracted by the outrage of the man ahead of him he did not notice the woman behind him until she spoke. And my was he glad she spoke! Aaron was a tall drink of water at six feet, and loved to use his height to peer down at people, as if he were better. Not that he actually thought he was better than anyone, but it was fun to give that illusion. People generally had a more fun reaction when they felt someone thought themselves better. "It is a virtue, but not my virtue," Aaron announced with a wide grin. "Beauty is also a virtue, but I see you have that one covered." So smooth, so damn smooth. Or at least he thought so.
"Wacha readin'?" He sing-songed with a smirk, attempting to liberate the book from her hand. He twisted his head this way and that, trying to get a good look at the cover. "Lover Unleashed?" He read the title aloud, then pursed his lips and let his eyebrows hop up his forehead. "Aww, is the pretty girl reading a Harlequin Romance? How cute! Hey everyone! She's reading a porno in the coffee line!" Aaron was grinning ear to ear, that shit eating smirk lighting his eyes as he frantically looked this way and that, hoping the other patrons found it as amusing as he did. He at least restrained himself from holding the book high above his head, letting it dangle in hopes that the pretty girl would jump and try to grab it back. It would have been a brilliant idea, because jumping let him check out bouncing boobies, but he had the distinct feeling this one might kick him in the shins. Or the balls.
Sighing his plan to make her hop away, he handed the book back, stuffed his hands into the pockets of his slightly baggy jeans, and threw on another casual grin, as if he had not just deliberately attempted to embarrass her in front of a whole crowd of coffee drinkers. What? It wasn't like she knew any of them. "I'm Aaron," he offered casually, cocking his head to one side. "What's your name? Or should I just refer to you as Mrs Reads-Porno-Books-In-The-Coffee-Shop?" He somewhat liked that name, come to think of it.
