As she put the cup down, her heart thundered so loudly in her chest that it almost drowned out whatever the woman was talking about. Instead, she was watching her eyes. Did she notice?, she wondered in regard to her little flourish. It didn't seem so. The woman was struggling to say something into her wallet. What did you expect, Liv? she though resignedly. Childish. That was all. She was being childish. All the bravado she had felt trickled away.

As she turned to leave, Nika's eyebrows quirked and loud words cut through the fog. “Clearly, you need to go out with me.”

She spun around, eyes wide, mouth agape in a grin, stunned as if she had been smacked in the head, a surge of hope jolting through her. It worked?!?!

It was gone in a moment and she couldn't help the way her mouth fell, the way she wilted, as Nika hung up and apologized profusely. Her cheeks flushed with embarrassment- no, outright humiliation. What was she thinking!?!? Stupid. Stupid. Stupid...

She wanted to crawl under a rock, get out of here, away from her. This was bad. "It's ok," she said softly. "Didn't mean to interrupt." And then she turned to go and hide in the back. Bjorn could handle things.
