She remembered walking in on him the other night, those tattoos out on display for an audience he had not anticipated.
Two men conversed in Hindi, letting me know they were Indian-Fijian descent. Their hands punctured their sentences as I skirted the perimeter, scanning the rudimentary graphs and diagrams of flight paths and other aeronautical paraphernalia.Our driver pointed outside to the wet night, nodding as if it was a perfect evening to fly. The other man shook his head, waggling his wristwatch in his friend’s face, scrunching his nose with disagreement.
If it weren’t important, I’d happily stay the night in some shitty backpackers. But it was important. I had to be there. I wouldn’t fail again.Shoving my hands into my jean pockets, I approached them. Look, we’re happy to pay. How long is the flight? An hour or so? That means you make some good coin and get home all within a couple of hours. Forcing a smile, I pulled the wad of cash from my back pocket (it was all I had left). Need to know we’re good for it? We’ll pay you up-front. How about that?The remaining US currency was convenient. I’d pay for all of us, and they could pay me back on the flight.
The driver cleared his throat, gesturing to his friend and the money in my hand.Frowning, the other man—who I assumed would be our pilot—came closer. Ignoring the money, he held out his hand waiting for me to shake. Transferring the bills to my left, I clasped his right, completing social niceties.
Letting our handheld introduction break, the man said, I’m Akin. You are?
Mr. Galloway, you do realise a storm is threatening Fiji. It’s not safe—I’m sorry, Roni, said Teagan. It’s just that he’s never brought a female to meet us before. At that moment, some customers arrived.
We’ll be back in a few minutes. Deana and Trish scuttled off to take their orders.At the same time, Teagan jumped up from her seat. Time to feed you. Marcus, I take it you want the usual? He nodded. Roni, what will you have? Teagan wrote down her order and then disappeared.
I’ll bet it works out nicely for you that your sisters work in a diner. Lots of free food.Chuckling, Marcus threaded his fingers through hers and nuzzled her neck. The diner’s theirs. Although they live in different packs, they run the business together. And I do admit to taking advantage of the free food. Seeing his sisters exchanging knowing smiles, he said, They like you. That was important to him, because it was mostly his sisters who had raised him.
