“Sir?” the snack cart man says. “Coffee?” 

The man next to me gives the snack cart vendor a distracted look and then a sharp nod. He holds up his finger to indicate he’d like one large coffee.

Well. He’s not very friendly, is he?

But he is getting coffee…

My stomach gives a tight hungry clench. I make my decision, because honestly, hunger is a great motivator. Plus, it’s fate.

“Devon, anything else?” I ask. I’ve decided that the man next to me is named Devon. He looks like a Devon.

Clearly, he doesn’t answer, because he’s on the phone, ignoring everyone but the crazy-in-love lady on the other end.

I turn back to the snack cart man and smile apologetically. “He’s on the phone with his sister, she’s causing him all sorts of trouble. You see, my husband and I are on our honeymoon and all we wanted was a little time to ourselves. But family…” I shrug. “You know how it is.”

“What does he want then?” asks the man impatiently. There are gobs of people waiting for snacks in the rows ahead of us. 

I tilt my head and study the menu pasted to the side of the cart. I lick my lips. “He’ll have that coffee with cream and sugar. A ham and cheese croissant. A chocolate chip muffin. And, hmmm a bag of salt and vinegar chips.”

The snack vendor grunts and starts pulling out the food. I horde it, gathering it on my lap. 

“Anything for you?” 

I nod, my eyes going glassy from the food smells wafting up to me. “I’ll have a blueberry muffin. An apple. Another ham and cheese croissant. And a large coffee, no cream, but lots of sugar.” 

My stomach twists again and I lick my lips. 

I set the food in my lap, and then pull out the tray to put the coffee on. It’s steaming and smells so good that I almost start crying again.

The vendor uses an old blocky calculator to ring up the total. 

“Twenty-six dollars,” he says. 

I look at the vendor, then I look at Devon, then back at the vendor and shrug. 

“Please. You can’t possibly get married Sunday. Fine. Bye. I’ll see you—” Devon sighs and clutches his head for a second then he turns to the vendor. It looks like his phone conversation is done. “How much?” he asks.

“Twenty-six dollars.”

Devon’s eyebrows scrunch down and he scowls at the vendor. “For a large? How much do you charge for a small?” 

The large-nosed vendor rolls his eyes. “The coffees are four dollars. The croissants ten. The muffins eight. The apple-”

“I don’t want all that, I just want coffee.”

“Your wife ordered for you,” the vendor says. 

“What wife? I don’t have a wife.” Devon looks a little confused and a whole lot offended. 

I give the vendor a sweet smile. “It’s a game we play. Being newlyweds. Devon thinks it’s funny.” 

Devon gives me an appalled look, and I think he’s only just realized that I’m in the seat next to him. “Excuse me? We’re not married.”

I look back at the vendor. “See?” I open my eyes wide and flutter my lashes. “Come on Devon, don’t be that way.” 

I didn’t think it was possible, but Devon becomes even more stiff-backed and starched looking.

The vendor sighs, clearly at the end of his patience. “Come on, Devon. Buy your wife the food. Twenty-six bucks.”

“We’re not married,” he says, then something else dawns on him. “And my name’s not Devon!” 

I roll my eyes. I think the vendor’s starting to get angry.

“I don’t care what your name is. I just want you to pay for the food your wife ordered.”

“She’s not—”

An exceptionally tall man a few rows up from us stands up and shouts over the seat, “Hey, funny guy, pay for your wife’s food so we can get our coffee.”

“Exactly! Thank you!” an old battle-ax of a grandma adds. 

Devon’s cheeks turn bright red and I can see the war taking place inside him. Make a scene and fight the injustice of the crazy lady next to him, or pay the bill and avoid the scene. I smile sweetly when he pulls out his leather wallet and stiffly counts out thirty dollars.

“Keep the change,” he says, shoulders stiff.

“Thanks, Devon. Enjoy your honeymoon,” says the vendor. He shoves his cart down the aisle to serve the next row of passengers.

I sit still, relishing the weight of the food in my lap. Yum. Food.

Devon lets out a low growl. He’s mad. Really, really steaming mad. In fact, I can feel the heat rolling off him. His eyes are sort of like those laser beams that sear your skin. 

I hold out one of the warm foil-wrapped croissants. The crinkly noise the foil makes has my heart doing a happy dance.

“It’s ham and cheese. I hope you’re not a vegetarian. Or a vegan, you’re not a vegan, right? No, you wouldn’t be, your shoes are leather.”

I drop the croissant into his hand and say, “Enjoy!”

He gives me an incredulous look. “What’s wrong with you?” 

Lots. Lots and lots. But while I’m with Devon, I’m not going to think about it.

I take a big bite of my croissant. Oh holy heaven, the cheese is all melty and gooey and the croissant is so buttery. A soft little moan escapes. 

His eyes flick to my mouth and I lick a crumb from my lips. So good. It’s so good. Devon seems sort of stunned. 

“Don’t you like ham and cheese? I got you a chocolate chip muffin too, or you can have my apple if you want? But really, you should try this croissant. It’s like heaven in your mouth.” 

He shakes his head and stares at me with morbid fascination. “Are you insane?” 

“Hmm?” I take another bite, yup, still amazingly delicious, and then I swallow some of the steaming coffee. 

“Are you insane? Or a scam artist? What?”

I frown. “Devon, please. I didn’t mean anything by—”

He throws up his hands. “For crying out loud, my name isn’t Devon. It’s Nathaniel. Nathaniel Barry.” 

I smile widely and hold out my free hand for him to shake. “Izzy Harris, I’m so pleased to meet you.”

“We start now.” I look at Nathaniel and think through the options. Finally I decide on one. “I’m gonna need you to laugh.”

“Excuse me?”

I grin. “I know. It’s probably been years. Has Gertrude ever heard you laugh?”

His eyes go distant like he’s working through the years trying to locate a time when he and Gertrude laughed together. “Sure,” he finally says.

“In bed?” I ask, because that would work the best.

“No.” 

Ugh. “Oh well. So, what you need to do is laugh as if you’re in bed together.”

“Gertrude doesn’t laugh in bed. I don’t laugh in bed. Why would anyone laugh in bed?” He looks at me censoriously. Sort of like a principal might. I try not to smile. 

“Okay. Well, I’ll help you out. I’ll give you an example. Picture this.” I lean against the hay bale. Nathaniel stands stiffly a few feet away. That’s not going work. I stand up and tug on his arm, pulling him to lean beside me. “Relax,” I say. After a second he becomes less stiff. I lean into him. The smell of hay surrounds us. “Picture a field. It’s early fall, the air is cool, but it’s midday so the sun has warmed the grass enough for you to lie down. There are apple trees nearby, the apples are ripe and some of them have fallen, so the air smells crisp and sweet. There are a few farmhouses nearby, but not close enough for anyone to see you.” 

“What does this have to do with laughing?” 

“Shhh.” I shush him. “There are some bees droning overhead and a few birds hopping between the apple trees. It’s the weekend. You have nowhere to go and nothing to do. Except make love. That’s the only thing on your mind. Because your girl is on the soft warm grass beneath you, and her lips taste like Honeycrisp apples and she’s looking at you like she wants to taste you too.” I lean closer to Nathaniel, caught up in the smell of the hay and the memory of a crisp apple. “So you slowly lift up her skirt, play your fingers over her skin, taste the apple on her mouth. And then, she lifts her half-eaten apple up to you, like Eve in the Garden. You look at the apple and then you look at her, there’s a glint in her eye. You lick the apple and then you push inside her, and it feels so good, you feel so happy, that you laugh. You laugh from the joy of it…you…you…” My throat feels tight and painful. I look down and see that my fists are clenched. I slowly, carefully release them.

“I?” Nathaniel says.

I clear my throat and try to push aside the burning, scratchiness that has lodged there.

“You laugh. That’s how you laugh.” Then more angrily, because he still looks like he doesn’t understand, I say, “Just do it.”

He shakes his head at me then stands up straight. I push away from the hay bale too and look around it at Gertrude. “Go ahead.”

Nathaniel takes a deep breath and then laughs. 

Gertrude didn’t hear. Thank goodness. I look back at him. “That was terrible. You sounded like an anemic donkey.”

He holds up his hands, “I can’t laugh on demand.”

I purse my lips. “Try again. This time do it loud enough for her to hear. But picture apples and sex and pleasure.”

He rolls his shoulders, shakes out his arms, and looks, for all intents and purposes, like he’s warming up for a big game. My irritation thaws. Cute. He takes a big breath, then he looks at me. Wow. I take a step back. His eyes are all dark and dripping dream boaty-ness.

“Ready,” he says.

“Oookay.”

He closes his eyes, lifts his head and laughs. It echoes through the lobby. Little electric tingles rush across my arms and chest. It feels like his laugh is petting me. Goodness.

I stare at him in shock. 

Now that’s a sexy laugh.

They’re polar-opposites in every way.

“I’m gonna be cruel to be kind, Nathaniel. Gertrude’s gone. She’s been wooed by some stallion. She’s starry-eyed, head over heels in love with another man. The sooner you accept it, the better. You should move on.”

Unbelievable.

“She met him less than a day ago,” I say through gritted teeth. “She can’t possibly be in love. It’s a momentary lapse of judgment. As soon as she sees me, she’ll realize her mistake and come home. With me.”

“Oookay,” Izzy says, completely unconvinced. “What does the stallion do?”

I narrow my eyes. “I don’t know.”

“What’s his name?”

That I do know.

“Raphael,” I growl.

She snorts. “You’re screwed.”

I don’t like how confident she sounds. “What’s that supposed to mean?”

“Do you know how a man named Raphael makes love?” she asks, her voice liquid and smoky.

“Certainly not,” I say, realizing as I do that I sound stiff and pompous. 

“Well, I do. I’ve met plenty of Raphaels. Metaphorically. You’re toast, buddy. You can’t compete.”

“I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’ll have you know, I’m about to be made partner, I have an MBA from—”

“La-di-da. Super boring, blah blah blah. Doesn’t matter.” She pulls on my arm to stop me from walking and then tugs me around. “Let me show you. I’ll be Raphael. You be Gertrude.”

“Are you kidding me?”

“Humor me,” she says.

“Fine.” I cross my arms over my chest and wait for Izzy to work her Raphael magic

I’m not expecting anything drastic, so it stuns me when suddenly, she changes. One second she’s mischievous and sprite-like, the next she’s a smoky-eyed sex goddess. She drags her pointer finger down my arm and looks up at me from beneath dark, feathery eyelashes. There’s a soulful depth to her eyes. Her skin glows in the evening light. Her lips part, just a fraction and the pink tip of her tongue darts out. I focus on her lips. Her cool fingers trail down my arm and then stop at the pulse point of my wrist. 

What the…

“Where have you been? I prayed for you. I’ve been waiting for you,” she says in a broken whisper. 

For some reason, my chest feels tight and my head feels muddled. “You…you have?” I’ve lost track of the conversation. 

I swear there’s a tear glistening at the corner of her eye. I want to reach up and wipe it away. 

“I didn’t think I could go on until I met you,” she whispers. Then she sets her other hand on my chest, right on top of my heart. The look she gives me, the heat coming from her hand, and the air between us, thick and full of promise, I want…I want to lean down and kiss her.

“Nathaniel,” she breathes my name, there’s a hitch in her voice and suddenly I’m picturing rumpled bedsheets and tangled limbs. 

“Izzy?”

“Hmmm?” She looks up at me, her lips soft and welcoming. 

Holy…

Suddenly, she shakes her head and her features snap back to mischievous imp. She steps away from me and says with a saucy smile, “And that is how a Raphael makes love.”

“Excuse me, I think my boyfriend is under your table.” 

I hold extremely still and crouch in a little ball under the round wooden table. The white tablecloth nearly touches the floor, but I can see the tip of Gertrude’s high heels and Raphael’s brown wingtips behind her. 

“If you don’t mind, I’m just going to look.”

I close my eyes. How did my life come to this? How did I go from an incredibly successful, well-respected businessman to a disaster covered in cake crouched under a table? It’s embarrassing. 

I wait for the tablecloth to lift up, but it doesn’t.

I move back but the woman at the table kicks me. I grunt and then hold still. 

Wait a minute. 

I recognize those shoes. 

“Don’t you dare,” a woman with a southern drawl a mile wide says. “My husband is under this table giving me the French tickle, it’s our honeymoon, and I always wanted a little tongue bath in public. Ah ah. Back away from the tablecloth, missy.” 

A grin spreads across my face. She’s absurd, she’s obscene, she’s the best. 

I could kiss her.

“If you lift this tablecloth this whole restaurant and all them old ladies will see my hoo-ha. That’ll ruin their appetites. Or it’ll make ’em jealous. Either way.”

“Uh…uh…what?”

“My treasure,” Raphael says, “the lady says the man you saw is her husband.”

“But…but I swear I saw Nathaniel. I don’t know why he’s here. I told him not to come,” Gertrude says.

“Well, that settles it. You couldn’t have seen a Nathaniel. My husband’s name is Devon.” 

I stifle a surprised laugh and Izzy kicks at me again.

“Now, if you’ll please excuse us, I’d like to get back to it. We only live once, ya know.”

Wow. 

She’s crazy. 

She’s perfect.

She rescued me.
