    Summary

    "A friend of mine is getting married this weekend," Aleksander tells her, his voice tinny in her headphones.

    "Good for them," she says absently, stuffing her keys and wallet into her bag and waving goodbye to her coworkers as she clocks out.

    "Are you busy?"

    "Huh?"

    "Are you busy? Would you want to come with me? I forgot about it until today and I'm down a plus one."

    "Oh, I don't know, Sasha. I won’t know anyone there and-"

    "No, this is good, I want to introduce you to them, anyway," he interrupts.

    She pauses, smiles at nothing as she waits for her train. "Just friends?"

    "Just friends. I promise. There'll be an open bar."

    It’s been almost six months since they started sleeping together and she hasn’t fallen hopelessly in love yet; she supposes one outing together won’t undo her completely.

    “Fine. Since there’s an open bar.”
