Okay, so this … is late (and a little short). Like really, really late. BUT - I got it done in the end! So, my dear @momomomma2 I hope you like the (very) late birthday present!
The night was slow, with only a couple of regular patrons scattered around the room and soft jazz playing in the background. Jim sighed softly and dried another glass while his gaze swept across the tables in case someone needed a refill. Nobody looked over at him, though, which was a blessing and a curse at once. He huffed and turned his attention back to the glass in his hand.
“Jim? I’m going to make an early night, okay? Bar’s pretty dead and I need to get up early tomorrow.” Jim turned around and smiled at Kara. She had already changed out of her work clothes and looked as tired as she sounded. The mischievous twinkle in her eye still sparkled, though.
