The display in front of me was overwhelmingly technical and I felt hives breaking out on my arms. Mr. I.T. was browsing through the technical aspects of each computer as he went down the line of laptops spread out like a buffet at Costco. I didn’t say anything, following behind him afraid to interrupt his concentration. I kept my hands clasped tightly in front of me, every so often glancing to the right or left looking for a way out of this situation.

The car ride here had been…wonderful? Relaxing? Comfortable? I was trying hard not to let myself use those words, but the truth was hard to ignore. He’s comfortable to be around, because he doesn’t put on airs. He doesn’t look down on me for not knowing the difference between processors and gigabytes anymore than I look down on him for not knowing the difference between short and long-term market forecasts.

“See anything you like?” he asked, tearing me from dissecting the car ride and back into reality. I reacted more than I should have at his voice, jumping as though someone had zapped me.

“Maybe I should ask you that question,” I answered, scolding myself for using a flirtatious voice instead of a professional one.

“Oh, trust me I see a lot of things I like, and I’m not just talking about computers, but that’s what we’re here for, so I’m going to stick to those. I don’t see anything that will fit your needs exactly, so we’ll have to run with option two and buy one tonight to hold you over until we can order one in.”

I frowned, clutching my purse to my side. “Now I feel bad. You had to come out tonight and still do more work to deal with it tomorrow, not to mention how much this is going to cost Gideon.”

He chuckled, crossing his arms over his chest. “It’s my job, honey bunches. As for Gideon, he’s not going to care. Buying two laptops to replace one is a drop in the bucket to his operations, considering he depends on you and your department to bring the guests to the resorts. Now, turn that frown upside down little lady, we’re almost done here.”

Honey bunches and little lady. Great, so he clearly remembers the drunken woman he helped home a few months ago. He probably remembered the drunken woman who threw herself at him for no reason, too. Considering the woman was drunk, horny, and clingy, he probably remembers better than the woman does.

“Aloha, can I help you two find anything?” a Costco employee asked, stopping near the computer displays.

Mr. I.T. pointed at the computer he was interested in. “Aloha, from what I can see we’ll have to take this one. It’s not ideal, but the only thing you have that will fit her needs.”

I checked the employee’s nametag and it read, Aka. “I’m a marketing director and sadly, my old computer wasn’t able to keep up, Aka.”

“Especially after she dropped it,” Mr. I.T. added and I groaned.

“All that did was put it out of its agony considering how it locked up nonstop. The little hourglass would spin forever.”

Aka’s head was going back and forth between us and he chuckled, “You guys are too cute."

Katie Mettner writes inspirational and romantic suspense from a little house in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

Katie lives with her soulmate, whom she met online at Thanksgiving and

married in April. Together they share their lives with their three children and two
leopard geckos. After suffering an especially bad spill on the bunny hill in 1989, Katie became an amputee in 2011, giving her the much needed time to pen her first novel, Sugar's Dance. With the release of Sugar's story, Katie discovered the unfilled need for disabled heroes and heroines! Her stories are about empowering people with special circumstances to find the one person who will love them because of their abilities, not their inabilities. Katie has a slight addiction to Twitter and blogging, with a lessening aversion to Pinterest now that she quit trying to make the things she pinned.
