I could light it on fire and it wouldn’t turn any redder.” “It’s brown.” So maybe I had the teeniest, tiniest, most infinitesimal amount of auburn in my hair. I was still a brunette. “It’s the lighting,” I said. “Yeah, maybe it’s the lightbulbs.” His smile brought up both sides of his mouth, and a dimple surfaced.

“You know Vee. Always there to make an uncomfortable situation ten times worse,” I muttered under my breath. Rixon laughed. “Good thing I’m not easily humiliated.” “I wish I could say the same thing right now.”
