closing up

"So has she got you wrapped around her little finger yet?" Billy decided to question Alfie about his love life as things were winding down at the Black Cat. They were taking a breather from the basement these days. Cecil decided Friday and Saturday nights would be good enough to keep it going now.

"Who?" Alfie winced as he was cleaning table.

"Amy, of course." Billy went to make sure the mugs were rinsed in hot water.

"She's around." Alfie was being rather aloof about it. "I see her from time to time."

"But nothing to celebrate about, right?" Billy shrugged.

"No," Alfie just grinned.

"And Micaela?" Billy remembered.

"Oh, she friendly enough." Alfie nodded.

"That's an understatement. I can tell from here she'd be all over you if you gave her the slightest chance."

"Good to know." Alfie took the warning seriously. He got ready to go then. "Tell, Newt I'll try to pop around tomorrow. Maybe I can give you two a break."

"Really?" Billy liked that idea. He couldn't remember the last time he had been alone with Newt.

Hooking up with Micala would be like going from the frying pan to the fire. Good he's listening to billy.
