“That’s him, huh?” Charlene murmured, covering her comment by raising the glass to her mouth.
Scotty didn’t glance at him, but kept his back to the man and his voice low. “Mr. Slick. I told him I’d point you out. Got me a fifty for doing it, too.”
“You backstabber,” Charmaine quipped and managed not to laugh.
“Enjoy your drink, Charmaine, and don’t stay away so long next time,” Scotty said in a normal volume and smiled at her.
Then Scotty moved to a table a few feet away and quietly chatted up more customers. Scotty didn’t look in her direction again. He seemed very relaxed as he played the role of the good business owner. Charmaine made a mental note to suggest he take up acting. Then she switched her attention back to the man.
She guessed he was about six feet one. He sat down at the bar and pretended to finally notice Charmaine was staring at him. He took the glass the bartender put on bar in front of him and lifted it in salute to her. Charmaine matched his gesture. He got up and walked to her.
“Good evening. I...”
“Yes, you most certainly can join me,” Charmaine broke in. She brushed her shoulder length hair with her fingers.
“I’m Lorenzo,” he said and sat down. His gaze covered Charmaine from head to toe. “Very nice to meet you.”
