Toni startles slightly. She frowns in dismay as the coffee sloshes over the edge of one of the mugs.
Once everything’s balanced again, Toni looks over to the nearest table.
Black leather jacket, knee-high boots over dark skinny jeans, a too-loose T-shirt for a band Toni’s never heard of, and a myriad of piercings all conspire to make Toni’s heart pound in her chest and her mouth go dry. It’s only worse when she meets the woman’s eye and gets lost in caramel. She stands there, marveling at the beautiful woman so long that even Toni’s aware it’s become awkward.
