“Champagne?” Joey asked, whipping out a bottle and glass from behind his back.
“Please don’t tell me you pulled that out your arse,” I cringed.
“Of course not!” He whipped around and showcased his bright blue superman backpack then faced me again with his characteristic madman grin. “Champagne?” he repeated, wiggling the bottle back and forth.
“I don’t need the glass,” I hurriedly said and snatched the bottle out of his hand, gouged both thumbs into the cork, then popped said cork into the air with a triumphant whoosh before slurping the entire bottle. “Thanks.”
For the first time, Joey looked at me with a dumbfounded wince painted across his face.
“Why didn’t you shake it first? Bubbles, Jenny! Bubbles!”
“Didn’t want to waste half the bottle,” I smiled, feeling the little champagne bubbles bubbling across my stomach in a bubbling haze of fine warmth and contentment. “I need this if I’m going to spend the evening here, in the wilds, with you, and God-knows-what you’ve got hidden away in that backpack.” I raised an eyebrow and glared suspiciously at his backpack. “No, I need to know. What else have you got hiding away? What horrors and torments are awaiting me?”
He sent me that dumbfounded look once more, as though I was asking idiotic questions. Perhaps I was. I didn’t even know anymore.
“Camping stuff. The hippo came with safari supplies.”
