Eva playfully elbowed Nathaniel in his gut. "No! Quit trying to be a bad influence!" she laughed. "Besides, somebody's got to work around here!" she called out as she hurried out the door.
Okay, okay, so she took a reasonable time off for the honeymoon. But, she could've taken longer!
"Oh, Black-Wolff," she said.
"It's umm... Mrs. Black-Wolff now," she corrected, ignoring Amelia's snickering.
Mr. Davies waved his hand dismissively. "Of course, Mrs. Black-Wolff..."
"Thank you so much!" Eva gushed. "You won't regret it! So what exactly does the new position require?"
Nathaniel pulled out the cash and handed it over. Before he turned to go inside, he saw Eva coming up the driveway. "Hey, babe! I made dinner!" he called out. He heard the pizza deliverer snort as she skipped down the stairs.
"But smell it!" he said, taking a deep whiff. "Smells delicious! And no clean-up! Perfect dinner!"
Eva laughed. "Well, I'll grant you that it's pretty convenient, but perfect dinner? No way! That is reserved for Vegetarian Spaghetti!"
Nathaniel scoffed. "Vegetarian? Ha! You can't butcher spaghetti sauce like that! It needs to have meat!"
He watched as Eva picked the mushrooms and onions off the pizza before nibbling a small bite. "Oh, come on! Those are the best parts!"
"No way am I eating those!" Eva said indignantly.
Nathaniel grabbed them up and plopped them on his slice. "More for me!" He paused as he took another huge bite. "So how was work?" he asked around his mouthful.
Eva laughed. "Basically, I think I'm supposed to agree with anything Mr. Davies proposes."
"What if he proposes to go proceed with cutting down Crystal Springs?"
"What's that, babe?" Nathaniel said with a loud yawn.
