That it should all end

“I had no idea you were seeing someone,” Ezra said. His brows furrowed and he leaned forward, resting his chin in his hand. “How’d you two hook up anyway?”

Winnie laughed. “I had just finished a tough job and went into this club to blow off steam,” she said. She looked thoughtful and said, “They had this rocking band and they were singing. Chris was behind the bar. I made him dance with me.”

Ezra chuckled softly. He couldn’t imagine anyone making Chris do something he didn’t want to do. At the same time, he could see Winnie convincing him that dancing with her was exactly what he wanted to do. “You make for a pretty intense couple,” he said.

“If we can make it last,” she said. Winnie’s brows furrowed. “Sometimes, that’s easier said than done, especially in this business.”

Frowning, Ezra thought about Morgan. Could he hope to maintain a relationship with her? They were, almost literally, from different worlds. He bit his lip and stood. “Let’s go to Chris’s club,” he said.

Winnie smiled. “That’s what I like about you, Ezra,” she said. “So impetuous.” She stood and nodded. “Let’s go!” They didn’t know if they could make things last, but they would enjoy the ride while they could.
