Her eyes flashed and that sly grin from last night spread across her face. “Oh no. You asked me about my most embarrassing moment. You want it. You have to give me yours.”
“And what if, Corrine Anderson, I give you mine and you choose to hold out once you have what you want?”

“Oh, this is going to be good.”
