The bar was decorated with a 1970s’ disco theme, complete with a multicolored dance floor that Pat kept full with his song choices. Jessie watched several couples twirl and gyrate. “There are no women here.”
Feigning shock, Martin rose off the bar stool, craning his neck to better survey the room. “My God, you’re right! Let’s leave.”

Her brother laughed until he had to wipe away the tears in his eyes. “You’re too funny.”
