Bern walked Kennedy to the shop once more, giving her another kiss.
“There are advantages to working with your boyfriend,” Sterling said with a sigh. “I could stand to start my day and end my lunch with a kiss from a handsome man.”
“Sorry, ma’am,” Bern said with a sorrowful smile. “I’m taken. And I see by that rock on your finger that you are too.”
“The pregnant belly wasn’t a clue?”
He made a face, squinting. “Not so much. A lady can do that on her own with the right contribution.”
Sterling giggled, flipping him off as he headed out.
“Oh, such rude finger gestures from a pristine pregnant lady! You’ve just scarred your child for life,” he teased, pointing at her.
Sterling laughed and threw a pin cushion at him.
