Beth’s eyebrows snap together, her mouth twisted up in confusion. “Teach me what?”
“You gonna come with me to my gym tomorrow. We gonna box. See how many rounds we can get outta you.”

“Yeh, we doin’ this.” He nods his head assuredly, like its already said and done-- set in stone.
“That’s ridiculous. I don’t need to learn how to fight.”
“Oh, nah?” He cocks his head to the side, his face scrunching up in that way he does when he’s being a sarcastic ass. He sets his drink down on the coffee table and starts advancing on her and Beth immediately backs up.
She points her finger at him, walking backward as she does, and god, hasn’t she learned anything from her fall earlier? “Rio. No.” She turns and quickly laps the couch, putting the coffee table between them, and setting her drink down too.
