"Favorite color."


"Favorite book."

"Sound and the Fury, William Faulkner."

"Favorite band."

"Something Corporate. Andrew McMahon should never have started Jack's Mannequin."

"I've never heard of them."

"Mhmm, I'll make you listen to them some time."

"Favorite animal."


She props herself up on one elbow to look at him quizzically. "Elephant?"

"Powerful, wise." He hints at a smile. "Gentle giants, of sorts, but if you rile them up…"

"I see." She kisses him quickly, then lays back down. "I just thought you to be more of a lion or tiger sort of man."

"Nah, much too blunt for my taste."

She laughs. "Best case you've ever worked on."

A/N: If you couldn't tell, they're just sort of getting to know each other. I've never read the book, but I love Something Corporate. And the reason Eva's questions are ended by periods is because, in my mind, they're not in question format, they're just statements.

If you're nice, you'll go read the first installment of The Mind Of Him Who Knows Minds =)
