“Zip me up?” Gina asked, coming out of the dressing room.
Roger dropped his cell phone beside her purse and stepped up behind her. “Can you believe Sabella’s getting married, and we don’t even have dates to the wedding?”
Gina shot him a chiding look over her shoulder. “Sabella deserves her happily ever after.”
He tugged the zipper up then resettled her hair. “I know! She does. But, seriously. Us? Stag at her wedding?” He plopped back on the plush cream bench across from the angled trio of mirrors. “Unacceptable!”
“Ever the drama queen.” Gina stepped onto the raised platform to assess the alterations to her maid of honor dress, trying not to look too hard at her reflection.
Roger actually stuck his tongue out at her.
“Weddings are supposed to be great for meeting people,” Gina reminded, turning towards him. “Haven’t you been saying you wanted a cowboy? Kane’ll have some friends there.”
“Oh, please.” His lips found the impeccable pout that always made Sabella jealous. Gina couldn’t wait to see her best friend outside of the computer screen again. “Does he seem like the type to have gay friends?” Roger asked with pointedly widened eyes.
“Oh, there’s a type, is there?”
“ Tsk. You know what I mean!”
“And you know what I mean.” Gina swept her hands out, silently asking about the dress.
Roger’s nod of approval ended with a head tilt.
“So suck it up, and put on a happy face for Sab’s sake,” she added, checking the hemline one more time.
