“I heard that you like coffee, so I read up a little on grinding methods for coffee beans!” I phrased my words jokingly, not wanting to expose how I had spent sleepless nights studying about coffee ever since I had discovered Augustus' love for the beverage.
My efforts paid off as he replied lightly, “It's not bad.”
Evidently, he was not going to spend the whole day praising me for the decent coffee. With a cold gaze in his eyes, he waved me away.
Dismissed, I went downstairs to hang out with my friends. I zoned out of the bland conversation.
Just then, my phone vibrated with an incoming message. It was a text from Augustus.
He wanted me to hitch a ride home with Colter after I ended work since he still had some matters to settle. I no longer entertained guests in my current role, and there was nothing more for me to do at midnight. Since he had offered to let me off early, I called Colter and asked him to fetch me from MIX.
