“What’s done is done, stop dwelling and get your mind in the game, Teri,” Nicholas said. “And find your keys.”
“They set the street on fire, Nicholas,” Teri turned her back on him, searching her camera bag for her car keys. She was going to be late. She would be late and the client wouldn’t wait. He’d tell his friends she was unreliable, she’d lose business, have to close the studio, lose the magazine and the camera shop, and go bankrupt. All because her fourteen year old son and his eighteen year old friend wanted to experiment with explosives.
“Lean into that camera bag just a little more,” Nicholas suggested, “I don’t think your nose hit bottom yet.”
Teri stood upright and glared at him.
“Also, did you know your shoes don’t match?” He gestured slightly with one finger, a slightly embarrassed look on his face.
Nicholas frequently nagged Teri about her wardrobe, insisting she should wear skirts or something feminine while working instead of the dark tailored suits she preferred. Considering he was probably gay, she couldn’t figure out why he was so set on her showing more skin. He never got excited when she did. She explained years ago since being the photographer meant being behind the camera, her attire needed to allow her to move, not get her a date. The explanation made no impression, and didn’t stop him from nagging, so Teri simply ignored him. Except...
Unable to resist, Teri glanced at her shoes. Nicholas laughed, they were fine.
