Another short segment from our joint work Same Time Tomorrow, taken from early in the book, shortly after the passage we posted last week. This features Gabriel and Olivia at the same party where Chloe and Dana are present.
He was more or less comfortable now. Olivia had him with her, chatting with two editors from Putnam. Both women had seen his last photo essay for the Geographic, and both were highly appreciative of his work. “So how did you get that final shot in the issue?” Megan was asking him.
Gabriel smiled, knowing what kind of reaction he’d get, and relishing it. “Hanging out of a helicopter a thousand feet over the canyon floor,” he replied honestly.
Olivia clicked her tongue in mock dismay. “Gabriel, risking your neck is one of those things I don’t really need to hear.” She said it with a smirk and a wink.
Heather laughed at that. “Any other way to tease her?”
“I wasn’t sure about the safety strap,” Gabriel replied.
