Two people, an ocean, a big fish and a small monkey. She doesn’t trust herself and he can’t remember when he trusted anyone.
(Lara) A spoiled man-whore was a bad idea even for a girl who majored in bad ideas. It was the monkey’s fault I didn’t take my own advice. Mrs. Dalloway caught me way off guard. She stripped him down to his bare humanity and wouldn’t let me throw a blanket over that naked soul. Everything he did was contradicted by all that he was. The little white-faced princess on his shoulder never missed a chance to point that out. Mrs. D was a shameless charmer but honest to her bones. She forced me to look at the truth of him until the reality of Morgan had me hooked.
(Morgan) I agreed too quickly. I thought she’d be a punctured, tatted up, street-smart bitch with the kind of balls it took to hang in a major league pressure cooker of a go-to South Beach restaurant. The only thing I guessed right about was the ‘nads. She had ’em but the package was all wrong. There were waves where I expected spikes, soft where I was looking for hard. Then she schooled me about dear dad’s precious art collection and I realized street wasn’t her only kind of smart. Mrs. D–who knows every wart on my blemished spirit–surprised me with a rare nod of approval. It’s usually a good idea to listen when your best friend has something to say. Even if your best bud is a monkey.
