"Yes she is."  feeling a bit uncomfortable about the lightness of the conversation. "I didn't know you were married?"

 

"I'm not, yet."  He retorts in a soft wistful voice.

 

"Why not?"  The minute the words leave your mouth, you regret it.  This guy is your boss. What the hell are you doing?  You can't have a normal human conversation with the devil himself.  You curse yourself under your breath for being so brash.  

 

"That's a good question," he says thoughtfully.  "I'm not sure.  I guess because I'm afraid she would say no.  I'm not exactly a knight in shining armor.  I think people view me more as the devil." he laughs incredulously as your stomach flips, having just made the same assumption.
