Alicia is still couldn’t believe that she had managed to pull it all off. She sat down at the coffee table and ordered a drink as a celebration. In fact, the occasion was so magnificent that she decided to treat herself to one of the brownies that were staring at her so temptingly.
When the drink arrived she blew the steam away from the top of the mug and grinned at her partner.
Across the table, her partner did not smile. “This was a great idea until you decorated the outside. The whole thing isn’t inconspicuous anymore and that was the whole point of buying the rooms above a coffee shop.”
Her bright smile slipped. “You don’t like it?”
“Our clientele was going to be more upper-class who would appreciate discretion. Instead, you have made it look like some kind of cheap and average brothel!”
She shrugged and bit into the brownie, “It is what it is. You just bring me customers.”
