“Did you slip some crack in my iced tea? Because I could’ve sworn you just said Declan was coming to Atlantic City with me,” Kate asked, her voice rising with disbelief. Her suitcase was packed for the bachelorette weekend and set next to the front door. Jared had stopped home for lunch to see her off and had decided to drop an unexpected bombshell on her. He gave her a sheepish look and shoved his hands into his pants pockets.
“Kate, it’s not the ideal situation for me, either, but I can’t get out of work. Believe me, I tried. Sending you off with another guy, especially Declan, feels like a punch to the gut.”
“Here’s a thought: Neither of you come with me,” she said and set her iced tea in the kitchen sink.
“You know that’s not an option. Someone is after you and you can’t go out unprotected…”
She snorted in response. “And Declan is supposed to keep me safe. Did you lend him a gun?”
“We live in New Jersey; he can’t just go around carrying a concealed weapon. He can fight though, and he’s one of the few people I trust to look after you when I’m not around.”
“Jared, I’m going to a bachelorette party. No boys allowed. Julie will kill me if I show up with Declan in tow,” Kate argued. “Anyway, it’s not like I’m going to do anything to put myself in jeopardy. I’ll be with Julie and her girlfriends in the middle of a crowded casino.” The doorbell rang and Kate’s eyebrows lifted. “I’m guessing that’s Declan now.”
“He knows to stay out of your way. I told him to just fade into the background and look out for anything suspicious.”
“That’s hilarious. Declan can’t fade into the background, it goes against his basic nature. His mere presence just screams look at me.”
Jared didn’t respond and opened the door to permit Declan inside. Her psychic friend noticed her displeasure immediately. “What’s the matter, Kit Kat?”
She silently seethed, causing Jared to answer on her behalf. “Kate is pissed that I asked you to go to Atlantic City with her.”
Declan placed his hand over his heart. “You wound me. And to think I’ve spent all morning putting together our playlist for the road trip.”
“It’s a bachelorette party. It’s a time for the bride to be with her best friends and get dressed up in ridiculous clothing. The clothing may or may not include pictures of penises. The night will also involve elaborate drinking games that aim to get the bride as drunk as possible. At the end of it all, the bride will hurl because of the copious amounts of alcohol consumed.” Kate looked pointedly at Declan. “It’s not a time for the maid of honor to bring along a male party crasher.”
He gave her a dumbfounded look. After a second, he apologized, “Sorry Kate, you lost me after I heard you say the word penises.”
