ROTG Jack Frost x ReaderChapter 6
Jack stuck around until you had to leave for work. You both sat in your living room enjoying each other’s company. He sat across from you and asked questions about yourself. While you did the same to him. He seemed very interested in learning about you, who you were, what you’re like, it was like playing twenty questions.
When you go to work you hung up your jacket and went through your normal routine. Today you worked 3 P.M till closing time. As the day dragged on slowly you would think about Jack.

The Coffee God tilts his chin, shouts, “Hey, mind if I take my break now?”
and ducks around the counter without waiting for a reply.
He slips his cigarette between his lips without taking his eyes from mine. I follow him out the door.
