Provocateur

Flatiron Lounge Friday night, I'm seconds away from leaving with a Johnny Depp wannabe when Chloe stops me. "Look at his shoes" she whispers, "do you really want that on your conscience?" She's right, as always, I tell him I have an important business meeting, just to see his reaction, then turn around quickly to make sure he doesn't get a chance to reply.

Three drinks later we're back out on 5th going north, arm in arm. Chloe is the sister I never had and not the kind of girl who walks around with a can of mace in her purse. When she says that nothing stains a men's shirt better than bullet holes and gun powder, she means it.

    Thank you for the comment. It has been quite cold here these past days, I've had to wear some extra layers. (Finland) But summer is definitely here too!
