"I’ve spent so much time covering for Bas it just comes natural to me now."
"Well I thought it was sweet to think there was a time you could’ve had me at less than hello. Back then I would’ve thrown myself at you if you did anything half so kind." Adria leaned in and kissed his cheek. He smelled really good.
