I was about to continue our banter back and forth when a voice interrupted me. “Hey, Trev. Sorry I’m late. Traffic is horrible after a game!”
Trev turned his attention to the guy that had approached us and shook his hand. “I should have warned you. Sorry about that.” They stopped shaking hands and he turned back to me. “Stan this is Pamela Haines, Pam, this is Stan Yeger.”
Stan stuck his hand out and I shook it. “Nice to meet you Stan.”
“You too, Pam.” I winced a little but decided to let it slide.
“It’s Pamela, Stan. I’ve teased her relentlessly about it for years and it’s kind of stuck…” Trev smirked at me again and I rolled my eyes and smiled back.
“No worries. I should probably go. I have some work I need to do.” I looked at Trev. “Thanks again for mentioning Dad.” I quickly smiled at him before looking back at Stan. “Nice to meet you.”
I quickly got in my car and drove away, going over and over what had just happened between the two of us. He was still teasing me, but I wasn’t annoyed by it; and that smile of his…it almost made me feel…happy.
