With the passing of the spring rain shower that lasted through most of the night, the sun is shining brightly on the damp surfaces as it quickly warms the ground. Birds are chirping and bathing in the left over puddles as they playfully flutter and splash in the water.
“Good morning,” says Destry as she steps off the spiral staircase of the art shops loft. Marcus is sitting at the counter reviewing invoices and as soon as he sees Destry, he stands to greet her. Meeting her in the center of the room, they embrace and kiss as if they have been away from each other for days. “It is a good morning.” Replies Marcus as he takes her by the hand. “Did you sleep well?”
“Yes I did, but I missed you this morning.” She smiles as she kisses him again. “Sorry, I needed to get some of these invoices recorded, didn’t want to be doing that all day today.” He smiles as he leads her to the counter where he keeps a pot of coffee brewing for his customers. “Coffee?” he asks as he grabs the handle of the pot.
She smiles and nods yes as she sits on the stool next to him. Marcus and Destry have become very close and in this short time of getting to know each other, they find themselves to be madly in love with one another.
“Do you want me to go through and read off the names so you can check off your list a little faster?” Destry asks as she grabs a stack of invoices out of the file. “Yes, that would be great. Once we get this tackled I’ll have everything sorted which allows me more time to show you around and introduce you to some of the locals.” Marcus grins because he knows that will be an interesting culture shock to Destry. “Alright, I made it through the B’s, what is the first one in the C section?” Marcus asks as he flips the page in his binder.
“Carson,” says Destry with a funny grin.
“What?” laughs Marcus as he smiles at her.
“This is fun,” she says in a shy way.
“What is. Sitting here reading off names at eight in the morning?” he laughs.
“Yes, yes it is.” She giggles. Interrupting their conversation is a light knock at the door. It is Lyla.
