“Wow, you’re looking very flash today,” Ryleigh looked Salim up and down as he took a seat next to her.
“Meetings all day remember?” he laughed. “Today’s required me to be a little more professional than yesterday.”
“It’s a good look for you,” she grinned. “Is that the kind of fancy we’re going for tonight as well?”
“If you like,” he shrugged, taking a bite of the sandwich Ryleigh had bought him. “I mean it, you don’t have to dress up if you don’t want to.”
“Oh no,” Ryleigh shook her head. “I’ve already got a dress.”
“Have you now?” Salim raised one eyebrow. “Well, I suppose I better see what I can rummage up in my closet then.”
“It’s not very fancy,” she admitted, glancing down at her plate. “I was just walking past a shop this morning and saw it and liked it. It was on sale for half price so I thought ‘why not?’.”
“I’m sure you’ll look beautiful no matter how fancy it is,” he smiled warmly at her. “You always do.”
