in a tear drop necklace and cherry-tinted earrings,
with hair far-too-showered and makeup-far too-done for a Sunday morning,
she ordered the fruit.
he, unapologetically, chose the biscuits & gravy
and paid the bill.
he is still unapologetic and she is still obsessively mismatched,
yet Pete is certain they could still rock a great next date.
this time he would take a bite; his nerves would be gone.
her ego would be done and she would steal from his plate.
