    Summary

    "'How about a toast instead?' he said, raising his glass.

    'Sounds like perfection,' she said, leaning her elbow onto her crossed knee and placing her chin into her hand, holding up her glass with the other.

    'To tonight,' he said as he clicked her glass with his own.

    They each took a sip, looking each other in the eye as they swallowed. Her eyes flicked down to his lips as he leaned into her ear. Her heart started beating harder at the smell of his aftershave.

    'Go wait for me in my office,' he whispered as he kissed her on a cheek."

    Summary

    In which aspiring writer Betty Cooper, in need of money to pay her share of the rent, takes a job at a diner with a boss who knows very little about good food - and even less about good women.

    It just so happens that she knows a lot about both.

     

    And then there’s Veronica Lodge, ever the supportive best friend, who doesn’t expect to be willingly served greasy hash browns by a taller-than-tall, darker-than-dark, neck-tattooed waiter. Except, it happens.

    And she likes it.

    ...

    Or, FP goes to jail and leaves Jughead in charge of the diner he’d worked so hard to make a success. It’s a magnet for the life he’d tried to leave behind, and he’s floundering when he finds salvation in the form of his new, inherently good waitress.

    Summary

    She says her name is Ray. Clyde mutters that it’s a boy’s name, and she smiles at him like she’s heard that one before, and tells him, “It’s Rey, with an e in the middle.”

    Clyde asks her what she’s doin’ here in town, and Rey-with-an-e tells him she’s lookin’ for work as a mechanic. The look on his face must give him away, because her expression sours.

    “You think a girl isn’t capable of being a mechanic?”

    Clyde feels a strange sort of a thrill go through him when she fixes him with that glare. “No ma’am. My sister, Mellie, she knows e’rthing there is to know about trucks. I’d never presume to tell her she didn’t.”

    Rey-with-an-e looks at him over the top of her bottle of beer. “You know, it’s not usually advisable to flirt with a woman by calling her ma’am and comparing her to your sister.”
