TEXT ME, CUPID // Episode 1, Scene 2

Previous: 1.1 // The Challenge

Sunday, December 3

iwillornot sent you a message!

iwillornot: Are you for real?

notanightingale: Are you?

iwillornot: Meet for coffee to find out?

iwillornot: I’m Will, by the way.

notanightingale: Will, or not? LOL.

notanightingale: Do you understand and agree to my terms?

iwillornot: I’m reeling from a recent divorce and incapable of having a meaningful relationship, possibly even a meaningful conversation. Or, at the moment, a meaningful life. The only upside to my situation is that after fifteen years of monogamy I get to chase all the strange I want. And December sucks. And I’m damn fit for a guy a couple of years past forty. Also—bonus—I still have all my hair. So, yeah. Bring it on, Florence.

notanightingale: Did you just figure out my real name from my handle? Oh, Will. We will have fun.

iwillornot: It was rather obvious. So. Coffee. Saturday morning?

notanightingale: One night stands begin in the evening. Wednesday night? Also, you’re not teasing about the hair? I can do bald, but only if it comes with killer abs.

iwillornot: Fucking full head of hair. Although there’s more salt than pepper in it—as you can tell from the pics if you look. Premature greying. It’s because I’m so fucking brilliant.

iwillornot: Also, I do have killer abs. Thank you for inferring.

notanightingale: Also, you like big words. LOL. So—Wednesday night?

iwillornot: Wednesday night. Cafe Blanca near Eau Claire convenient for you? My apartment’s just upstairs.

notanightingale: Perfect.

Of course, if at any point, you can’t take it any more and want to read ahead, one-click Messy Christmas or pre-order the full Text Me, Cupid series. In this case, I thoroughly approve of your desire for instant gratification. 😉

(And if you’re on-track and devouring all the novellas as they realize–five more days until Saving Christmas is live!)
