    “You brought up the subject, Andrés, the L-word subject. You did. Not me. I would never mention it."
    She was merciless on his error. He couldn't undo. Mila had a way of turning things on him, teasing. For a small person, her flirting weapons were huge.
    The tavern was mostly empty. Black Dog did not need their table. He called the waiter over to have him clear, asking for a clean sweep and two fresh mugs of coffee. He stood up and paced while this transpired, glancing at the bold girl with a wicked smile on her lips, staring him down from her seat. When the waiter finished, he sat, but could not respond. She lit into him.
    “It’s the best sex either one of us has ever experienced.”
    Yes.”
    “I’m ready to go back to the studio for more, right now.”
    Yes.”
    “I’ve not fallen in love with you, Andrés.”
    “I’m not in love with you either,” he said.
    Mila leaned in. She paused theatrically.
    “This is very romantic.”
    “Yes, it is,” he said.

Important: My novel, The Preludes, is the origin-story of Lin and Georg. They are not the protagonists of The White Sky, but do play a prominent role. So, for best revelation and surprise in storytelling, please read The Preludes first.
