"So? What do you think? Hawk was right about having a summer home, huh?" "It's beautiful, Beau. So much light." "..." "Darling?" "I was just thinking...Hawk is right down the road. Charles is a couple hours away, and Mulcahy is moving to the next town over next month." "Yes?" "I just...I can't believe my luck. I have a beautiful wife and child, and my sister and niece are well taken care of." "Kiss me." "Don't have to tell me twice."
"I dare you." I said. "To what?" Alexander asked. "To kiss that lady." "Which one?" He smirked. "The statue." I pointed at the solemn looking bust of a woman from Ancient Greece. He walked over nonchalatly and kissed it. Then turning to me he grinned, "The kiss was stone cold."
