I felt my face get hot for an altogether different reason. How often acute cute strangest? Turn out to be good Samaritans. Oh I call it you pay for my drink. I protested. It was happening anyway but had to offer a token protest. He turned his body more fully toward me. His hair peeks out from underneath his beanie waving as it met the nape of his neck. Oh of course you can. He replied with strangers. I said more firmly. He grinned that big again and came out of his lean on the counter to extend a hand. I'm Randall. He said and I shook his hand and told him my name. See he said we're not strangers anymore. He talks his chin as he said. It's a move that was a fifty fifty mix of confidence and diffidence.

Fashion I squatted down to join him and twisted old newspaper for Kindling. Do you think think we gave anything away. I asked him quietly leaned my head against his shoulder. The fire caught quickly and the sound of the flames moving along the logs already began to soothe me. or maybe it was the forehead kiss. Randall gave me before. He gathered me more fully in his arms. Maybe it's hard for me not to look at you without every memory from the last last few weeks showing on my face I turned to kiss him for his time and the kiss lasted two beats too long he pulled back and asked.

First Buckets you have quite the treats this week. I don't having to do myself down but I think you know how to vote this week. We will put a poll up on our twitter We usually put it up on a Friday. So you have all of Thursday to listen and gather your thoughts and in this case you you will have to gather your thoughts amongst other things and then on Friday you get to pick which of the Rondo stories you like. Do you want him to be scribbling his number on a cup in a cafe or do you want his Hans inside of Nicole's genes in front of fire so those era options Very difficult for me to actually for myself this week to be very fucking honest But anyway you have the choice. Go to twitter. At first aid kits and register you'll votes all votes count and if nothing else it's good practice for the elections in the UK and also soon to be in the US. Listen the politics of the world man this escape but I've just got to mention it registered to vote and and vote anyway. That's the end of fantastic wars Nicole. You have killed me. Dead Alive.
