GENRE: Contemporary Fantasy Romance
Mona's casual comment she has a boyfriend causes a bit of an uproar in the bar she works at; seems theres a running bet on it. When he walks in with a couple of other people, Mona doesn't let on to Jackie, her lesbian BF, he's there.
"If he's half as hot as that guy, you've done well."
"Are you sure you're not on my team?" Mona joked with her.
The three edged their way to the bar.
"Hey Babe, we too late for three lagers?" Cart asked. Silence spread out around him.
"You know Mona?" Mickey asked as he pulled the beers.
Cart tensed for a moment then looked around at the happy, grinning faces.
"I assume that's not a problem?" he asked as he picked up his beer stein.
"Depends on just how well you know her," Val said. Jackie done well with that one.
Cart looked at Mona. She grinned but did not move, didn't want any accusations of throwing the bet.
"Ah, how about fairly well, but not as well as I'm going to?"
His innuendo was not missed by anyone and Mona found herself blushing.
"Then I'll buy your beers," Jackie said, slapping a twenty on the bar. "You just made me a thousand bucks!"
Cart choked on the sip he'd taken.
"I made you a thousand bucks by saying I was Mona's boyfriend? Hell, what kind of bets do you guys make up here?"
Several people launched into explanations, only to be shouted down by those chanting 'Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!'
