18. “If you insist”
It’s the annual Police Charity ball and for once Chloe is actually looking forward to it. She’s no longer ostracized because of Palmetto, she’s got a few coworkers who she actually likes, and Lucifer agreed to attend.
He’s dressed to the nines, of course, looking dashing in his tux. Her and Dan meet him at the entrance. Lucifer looks Dan over approvingly, something playful in his gaze.
“Well, look at you Daniel. Don’t you clean up nice.” he says, mouth curling at the ends.
“Yeah, yeah.” Dan brushes off. Then he seems to realize Lucifer is serious. “What, you mean it?”
Lucifer leans forward and straightens Dan’s tie, fingers lingering. “Mmmm. Very fetching.”
Dan looks startled, cheeks pink. Chloe elbows Lucifer. “Knock it off.” she says with a laugh. Lucifer pouts but relents, only to turn his attention to her.
“And you, Detective. An absolute vision.” and he brings her hand up to his mouth to press a kiss. Chloe swallows and ignores Dan grinning at her. “Now, I’m told this is were I get to spend money and maybe win a trinket or two.” Lucifer states.
“There’s a raffle and a silent auction.” Dan says. Then he narrows his eyes. “You wouldn’t have anything to do with the grand prize, would you?”
“Grand prize?” Chloe questions.
“The all expense paid weekend stay at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills.” Dan answers.
They both turn and look at Lucifer suspiciously. He self-consciously fiddles with his cuffs. “I don’t know what you are attempting to imply.”
Chloe touches his arm. “That was very generous of you, Lucifer.” she tells him, sincere.
“Yes, well.” he sniffs. “It’s all for a good cause, isn’t it?”
A different song starts up and Chloe grins. “C’mon. I wanna dance with the Devil.” she tells him.
“Oh, alright.” he says, letting her pull him out to the dance floor. “If you insist.”
