A little further along in Something to Prove — Elizabeth has had a rough night at her bar and she goes to O’Leary’s to relax a bit. Although Colin has seen her before, she’s never introduced herself to him. In his thoughts, he calls her Legs. We’re in Colin’s point of view for this scene.

                            Turning back to give Legs her drink, he thought he might like to have a night of something more with her. He put on his best fuck-me smile and leaned against the bar. “What do you say we get out of here?”

                            The drink in her hand bobbled and some whipped cream slipped down the side. Her face, however, showed no sign of nervousness.

                           “That’s a tempting offer. More tempting than you can know, but I have too much work to deal with.”

                           “What work needs to happen after midnight on a Sunday?”
