Re: 7:25 p.m., by the bar - aurora / daniel
"Rude. You're both being real rude right now." But Daniel was laughing all the same, and gladly let himself be pulled into Chris's orbit. He leaned against the chair, keeping the barest fraction of distance between them for plausible deniability. It would hardly be enough to throw Aurora off their scent, but he had made a promise and he would make at least this effort to keep it.
"No jealousy here," he said, after steeling himself with another sip from his glass. He knew without looking at either of his companions that this assertion would surely not be believed. "She asks questions about my sex life, I get to ask questions about hers. All's fair, right?" He tipped his glass toward her, throwing her a teasing wink. "Besides, maybe I've already got post-party plans."
