    Summary

    “You...are you KIDDING me? You’ve been on the cover of Entrepreneur TWICE! Your interview and photoshoot in Condé Nast caused culinary school enrollments to triple!” The gym rat gestures at the stack of magazines on the coffee table, the ones Huaisang has dropped off during his visits, which, Nie Mingjue now realizes, are the ones the other man is talking about.

    “You’ve started TWO successful restaurant chains in five years. You have a line of kitchen knives from Kyocera AND a line from Wüstof! You host a cooking cruise every other year and the waiting list is ten years out! You even have a fan site dedicated to your kitchen uniforms, which, by the way, are sold as HIGH FASHION PIECES in your restaurants!”

    The gym rat pauses to take a breath.

    “Of course I know you’re Nie fucking Mingjue! What the HELL?!?”

    “This isn’t going to end well. Our parents are far too smart not to realise something is up.”

    Cora rolled her eyes as Allison repeated the same thing for the tenth time in as many minutes. She understood why her girlfriend was concerned, she really did, but she also didn’t think worrying about their family dinner was going to make anything better. It would go well or it wouldn’t, and there was nothing they could do about it.

    “Our parents probably realised something was up the moment we told them we wanted to have a Hale-Argent dinner party.”

    Summary

    He was positive the elevator doors hadn’t even fully opened yet when he heard the voice, someone literally standing right in his path and instantly demanding his attention.

    “Have you met the hot new guy?” Erica Reyes demanded, blocking his exit.

    He gave her an unimpressed look at the question. He still had his coat on, he was holding a coffee, he’d literally just arrived at work after two weeks off, and he wasn’t even out of the elevator yet.

    “Hi Erica,” he said dryly. “My vacation was great, thanks for asking. Got a lot of rest and relaxation. I missed you while I was away, you didn’t text me as much as you said you would, we should grab lunch together later.”

    Summary

    “What’s your name? I can’t keep calling you Balto.”

    “What’s yours?”

    “Stiles.”

    Derek raises an eyebrow. That isn’t his real name. There’s no way. But now he thinks about it, he has a vague memory of someone, probably Uncle Peter, telling him that with the fae, names have power. “I’m Miguel,” he says.

    “Lie.”

    “Are you trying to tell me your real name is Stiles?”

    Stiles runs his tongue across his teeth and considers Derek carefully. “Fair enough,” he says, “Miguel it is.”

    Grabbing his groceries and pocketing the change, Derek turns to leave; he’s nearly at the door when Stiles calls out, “By the way, Miguel, if you’re interested, it’s two for one on bags of kibble at the pet store down the street.”

    Derek doesn’t look back, doesn’t hesitate, just raises a hand and flips him off on the way out.
