Ashley poured beer in our glasses, and asked, “So, how are your cases going?”

“I thought I was finally going to have a trial today, but Luke burst my bubble.” I swirled the beer in my glass.

“That janitor case? I thought for sure that would go to trial. Your defense was genius, a janitor picking up trash.” She chuckled as she took a swig of her beer. “What happened?”

“The idiot was high when he was arrested,” I explained, scanning the bar for anyone else I knew. I didn’t want to bash my client if his family was present.

“Your client didn’t think to tell you that?” She asked with amusement.

“No, of course not. Why would you tell your attorney the truth?” It never helped their cases because the truth always came out. That usually happened when the defendant was on the stand, which was the worst possible timing since I couldn’t prepare for it. Clients think they know better though.

“Still bitter, Ms. Lawyer?” Luke asked pulling out a chair from our table and sat down.

I looked up at him in surprise. I hadn’t seen him come in. “I was hoping for some excitement. I’m tired of all the plea deals,” I said.

He’d changed since work because now he wore a faded pair of jeans and a black fitted T-shirt that did everything for his muscled chest. My eyes traveled down to his thighs, which filled out his well-worn jeans. He had spread his legs in that confident sprawl that men used when relaxed. He leaned back and placed his hands behind his head, giving me a long considering look. The position caused his biceps to flex, which I couldn’t help but admire.

“Well, when you’re on the wrong side of the law, the wins are few and far between,” his mouth twitched with amusement.

“Oh I’m on the wrong side of the law now, am I?” I responded. I was beginning to enjoy these interactions with Luke. I glanced over at Ashley, who mouthed, “What is happening right now?”
