AT THE MOGUL’S COMMAND
by Anna DePalo
“What’s this about, Cole?”
“Dinner. What else?” He looked bemusedly at the woman who had bedeviled his nights and days. She was in some kind of geometric-print wrap dress that left no curve untouched. My God, the woman was set on torturing him.
“I mean the subtext.”
He raised his gaze to her eyes. “Subtext? You were always a stellar student in English.”
“And you spent your time in the last row, goofing around.”
“Charlotte Brontë wasn’t my thing.”
“She was about the only female who wasn’t.”
“She was dead.”
“Don’t let that stop you.”
He grinned. “That’s what I discovered I liked about you, Danieli. You serve it up straight. Back then, and now.”
“I’m a teacher. It’s a survival skill.”
“I liked you better than you think, you know.”
“Well, that’s something, I suppose. Right up there with being someone’s sixth favorite teacher.” ♥
