The little smirk playing on Alexander's lips suggested that he really did know, deep down, the effect he could have on women when he turned it on. The primmest, most unapproachable ladies on the east coast would spread their legs for him after just a few minutes of coaxing and teasing them. He'd been thrilled when he'd realised he held this not so secret power.
"Mm, yeah. Definite progress," he nodded. "Well, considering what you've told me so far, I'll take that as a huge compliment," he told her with a nod.
"Probably!" Alexander laughed. "But he's a sweetheart, so probably not too much," he added. He knew a player when he saw one, but he also knew his son's heart. He would never intentionally hurt someone. "And you know, I'll definitely think about that. He is working with your Bucky at the cafe a couple of evenings, he's even made him pretend money to practise giving change and that sort of thing," he told her, not sure if Bucky had mentioned it or not. "Maybe the other nights he could come by, for sure," he nodded. Maybe he would drop him off, maybe he'd get dinner out of it, sure it could all work out pretty nicely for everyone.
He'd half forgotten about the conversations he'd had with Liberty. His head felt dizzy with possibilities. Her words, her description of what she wanted to do to him, sent a shiver of pleasure through him. "Oh, come on, Maryanne," he teased, all New York accent laid on thick. "As if you didn't know what you were doing, hanging off Peter all night like that," he reminded her. It had certainly turned his head.
"I thought maybe I'd missed my chance," he admitted, although he could clearly see now that it wasn't true. If he had been any sort of gentleman really, he probably should have tried for a kiss first. As it was, he wanted to watch her reaction as his fingers explored a little lower. They brushed against the exposed skin along her collarbone and the little bit of chest that was showing, and then his hand dropped to pop open that first button, absolutely self-assured that she wouldn't stop him.
