UNMADE REQUEST DAY NO. 2
Nick meets Angela. Crossover between the Demon’s Lexicon and Lynburn Legacy serieses, set before either of them. I am gold at this no spoilers thing!
Nick waited until the little one with the great boobs had gone to the bar, and approached the one with the gorgeous murderous face. He’d heard her friend call her Angela, he thought.
"Not interested," she said, stabbing him with her eyes. Her pupils really did seem like knifepoints.
Nick grinned. “Sure?”
"Oh no, I made a mistake, take me now, you irresistible hunk of something unmentionable," Angela drawled, her voice perfectly flat.
Nick tilted his head. She really wasn’t interested at all. He was good at judging that sort of thing. He wouldn’t have bothered with asking a second time, except…
"Just liked your style."
"Just could not care less," Angela snapped.
Nick shrugged. Angela rolled her eyes and turned her back. Nick turned away in turn but almost wanted to grin as he did so. He looked around for the next available body, and a blonde caught his eye.
Kami was bouncing on her toes trying to attract the attention of a bartender when the tall redhead next to her spoke up.
"I’m sorry for whatever terrible thing my brother is saying to your friend," he said, nodding in the direction of Angela and a dark-haired guy.
Kami blinked. “Well… I’m sorry for whatever terrible thing my friend is saying to your brother.”
The redheaded guy laughed, as if he instantly and perfectly understood. Kami found herself smiling at him.
"Hi, I’m Alan," he said. "Odd question. Do you read at all?"
"I’m addicted to crime fiction," Kami said with enthusiasm. "I want to be a journalist and do a degree in Cambridge which will start out in—"
She stopped. “No really, please go on,” Alan urged her sincerely, but then the vision Kami had seen over his shoulder was in their midst.
"COME ON KAMI, WE’RE LEAVING," said Angela.
Kami smiled at Alan for the second and last time. “Sorry.”
