Bonnie kept her head down as she walked around the back corner of the building. Cooper picked up his speed and was right on her heels. When Bonnie turned the corner, she stood on the toes of her heels so she could get to her car faster, knowing that Cooper was coming right around the corner. She almost made it to her car.
"Hey!" Cooper snapped his voice at her.
Bonnie grabbed her door handle and put her hand on her forehead.
"What were you doing in there?" Cooper lowered his voice.
The darkness behind the restaurant made it hard for them to see each other's faces.
"I just wanted to make sure everything was okay," she insisted.
"Yeah, well, everything was okay... and seeing you almost threw me off my game, Bonnie. You could have ruined that," he said.
"Oh, come'on! It wasn't that bad," she cracked a nervous smile.
"I didn't like that," he crossed his arms.
"Okay. I'm sorry, okay? I should have talked about it with you," she let the pin out of her hair.
"It's okay... just... we're a team on this. Don't mess it up."
"I wasn't trying to... but okay," she turned and opened the car door. She picked up her dress from her knees and slid into the driver's seat.
Just before Cooper could turn around and make his way back to his car, Sasha darted back behind the corner of the restaurant and darted back for her car. She put the key in the ignition and left as fast as she could.
What was that about...? A team? Off his game? she thought. "Something's going on with this, and I don't like it," she whispered to herself in her car as she made her way through the downtown streets.
Cooper drove out of the parking lot without any idea that Sasha was listening to their conversation behind the restaurant. Bonnie didn't notice, either.
Bonnie sat in her car, slowly dropping her keys from one hand to the other. She felt so bad for undermining Cooper and the plan to get the info on their friends. It wasn't just the plans she felt like she put in danger... but also any chance she would have with Cooper.
"Dang it, girl, you messed up," she told herself. "Ughhh," she groaned.
Her phone buzzed in her lap. It was from a number she didn't recognize. She had no idea that she needed to answer that call.
"Don't know you." She tossed her phone into the passenger seat and let it go to voicemail. She started her car and pulled out to head to her house.
A notification popped on her screen.
