Macie brought up the suggestion to head elsewhere for another round of drinks after our meal.
Intimately pinching her cheek, Augustus said, “It's time to go home because it's not safe for you to wander around when it's getting late.”
Unwilling to give up just yet, Macie stomped her feet and asked, “Why? I'm already an adult! Why are you stopping me when Erica gets to drink?”
Augustus had never intended to stop Macie. He answered with a bright grin, “Shall we drop by my bar?”
After that, we ended up walking side by side in a pair. Macie and Jackson were ahead of Augustus and me.
I took a peek at Augustus and wrapped my arms around his arm, whispering my question, “Do you think things will work out between them? I think Macie is serious about their relationship!” Initially, I thought Macie had been fooling around with Jackson, but she couldn't move her eyes away from Jackson the moment he showed up.
