"I am the goddess of information when it comes to Mr. Cavanagh, didn't you know?"
"Yes, a fangirl. A wild fangirl, that is what you are." Her friend was highly amused and shushed Katherine as she interestedly scrolled through the messages.
"Katherine Austen!" she giggled. "I didn't think you had grown up so much. You had hidden away your potential. Look at all these sexual innuendoes. 'play with you,' 'taking a shower,' wow. You pulled the big guns, didn't you?" she was ecstatic. "The bartender from last night would be more than happy to play with you and watch you shower, but here you are offering up your services to strangers," she clucked her tongue.
Katherine sat down beside her friend and followed her in giggling. "Am I being a tease?"
"He is insinuating that you have a female boner. You are asking to be taken a bite out of, little loli!" The words made Katherine burst out into fits of laughter. Oh, how the tables have turned. There she was being teased about her flirtatious behaviour, whereas it was usually the other way around.
"I'd let him take a bit out of me if he is as attractive as he sounds in his messages. He sure knows how to play with words."
"Just like you, rin rin." They broke into giggles.
"I am so proud of you, Kitty." She flew towards Katherine and pulled her into a hug. "My little girl, all grown up." She wiped fake tears away from her eyes.
"This is the last time I tell you anything. Give me back my phone." She snatched it out of Lily's hands as she continued giggling.
Lily stopped laughing and touched Katherine's arm, "Seriously, kitty. I am so proud of you. You haven't flirted and put yourself out there since you broke up with Jonathan. Even if it's only an electronic connection, I am proud of you for having the courage. You are finally revealing your true colors!"
"I feel great," Katherine said confidently, her hands now behind her head, a dreamy look in her eyes.
"How long have you been speaking to this guy?"
"About five days, nothing major," she shrugged it off, but she felt great about the situation.
"It might not be a lot but I am so proud of you for trying something. I wouldn't mind if you got a little spanking for being a naughty little legal loli, to be honest."
"I am curious if you will give Nathaniel a try now that you have opened up with romantic prospects," Lily said suddenly after a minute of silence. The curiosity in her voice was genuine. Katherine scrunched her brow in frustration and glared at her friend to stop her from fantasizing about a ship that would never sail.
"Don't glare at me, Kitty. He seems like a nice boy and he can mix some crazy drinks." The words were almost coaxing.
"He looks like a pretty boy and flirts with too many girls while he is serving. He gets his tips off charming girls and I am not one of those." She gave her friend a pointed look. "What happened after he chased me out of the bar?"
"Chased out? More like you were busy sexting the mysterious stranger and had to get some fresh air so that you could keep your cool…"
"But what did your nice boy do once I came out?"
"He went back and chatted up a blonde woman sitting two stools down from you. You won't believe the humiliation when he got turned out by that girl, as well. What do you think happened to his pride? Shattered into pieces, I think." Katherine stifled a laugh at the expense of a bartender whom she had zero interest in.
"And that is exactly why I don't like men who mix drinks. He is not my style. See? He gets rejected far too many times to be considered a Casanova and he is not charming enough to sway a woman's heart."
"If it adds to your humor, the other woman couldn't stand the sight of him either." She snorted. It was no wonder, he came off as a charmer at first sight, but in reality, he was a bit of a creep who would take every opportunity to score a girl.
"It was a good thing you didn't hook up with Nathaniel, then."
"And here you were asking me to get together with him because he was a nice boy. What happened to your bullshit story? You have changed your tune now." Lily gave off a fake yawn.
"I'll go get some sleep. Don't blame me for wanting your hoo-ha to get some action. I don't want it to shrivel and fall off from lack of use."
"I would rather my organs disappear than they get anywhere near Nathaniel Brown, sorry." She raised her hand and waved it in front of Lily in protest. "Talk to the hand, love."
"So childish!" Lily swore under her breath. But she was pleasantly amused at the banter. "Play with your Ray Kon, I need some beauty sleep to look lovely for my date." Katherine giggled and wanted to tease a little more, but instead complimented her friend a little more.
"That's not possible, my hot friend. You can't get any hotter. You'll burn them all if that happens!"
