Since He Asked
So she said OK because he asked her to, and when he asked her to his forehead crinkled and his face lit up a bit and his eyes sparkled, and one side of his mouth shot up and the other side didn't, as if it forgot to or didn't want to or something, showing his teeth, and his chin dropped and his eyes looked into hers and she could feel his breath on her face even sitting at the table in the hot shade and when he sipped his coke the straw darkened internally with liquid which slid smoothly back when he quit, and she could see the clear straw's end bitten flat a bit and at that point she decided she would and would have even if he hadn't asked so nicely, but he did, so when the waiter brought the check on a silver salver she grabbed it quickly and since he had asked her, paid, leaving a generous tip.
