I clear my throat pulling my gaze away acknowledging that he does clean up rather well.
“Where did you get the tuxedo?” I ask in a small voice.
“I had to look everywhere for it,” He rumbles a laugh.
“You should’ve asked, I would have given you a recommendation.” I run my hand over the satin lapel, smoothing it.
“Is it not formal enough?” He asks with a roll of his eyes.
“It will do perfectly actually. I’m impressed.” I smile crossing the room to the kitchen.
“Wine?” I ask as I pour myself a glass, feeling my nerves loosen just a smidge.
“No, I better not. I don’t drink and drive.” He replies.
“We’ll be arriving in a limo,” I inform him with a small laugh.
“A limo?” His eyebrows raise in surprise.
I take a big gulp of my wine and grab my clutch. “Only the best for Governor Woods’
party. Come now Mr. Hallman,” I respond walking into the elevator.
“This is the Governor’s party?” He asks.
“The one and only,” I sigh.
