The bartender reminded her of James Dean. Dark hair, smoldering looks. All he was missing was a pack of cigarettes tucked into the roll of his shirtsleeve. He had 'bad boy' written all over him.
She watched him while he worked. He manipulated the spouts of draft like he'd done it all his life, casting a sidelong glance across the bar to catch more orders from waiting customers. He gripped the liquor bottles with long, deft fingers and pulled clean wine glasses off the shelves with a flick of his wrists. It was like watching a magician. Mesmerizing.
She had no business ogling other men, but then again, Brody wasn't where he was supposed to be, and she was desperate for distraction. She made eye contact with Jimmy Dean, smiled and gestured with her empty martini glass. He nodded, his pouty mouth turning up at the corners, like he knew a secret she didn't. Forget the drink, she thought. I'll take you.
"You're not from around here," Jimmy said as he handed her another martini. "I'd have remembered."
Heat burned her cheeks. "I'm from Indianapolis."
"That's a long way."
"I'm here for the--"
His hand came up to stop her from saying anymore. "No, don't tell me, let me guess."
She smiled and ogled him some more. His eyes were deep set and had looked dark from a distance, but on closer inspection were blue, like stonewashed denim, and fringed with the longest eyelashes she'd ever seen on a man. Eat your heart out, Tammy Faye.
"We've got the psychic fair, an exhibit about orchids and the Nancy Drew thing. You don't look like a psychic."
"Whatever that looks like."
"Psychics dress funky, you know, beads,scarves."
Hayley inspected herself and pronounced, "No beads, no scarves. And I'll help you out. You can forget the orchid exhibit option. I hate flowers."
He quirked his head at her. "Who hates flowers?"
"So you're here for Nancy Drew."
And my delinquent fiancé. "Hey, you're good. Maybe you should hang out at the psychic fair, develop your talents."
He laughed, and the heat from her cheeks made its way to other parts of her body.
