I motioned around the patio. "Is this what you do? You save women from the resort leaches and lure them to your lair?"
"My lair? Am I Batman?"
"Are you? I don't know."
He smirked. "If only I could make a living at doing just that, but alas, no. You're my first rescue."
I stopped my reach for a piece of cheese and looked back up at him. "You're first?"
"My first rescue,” he clarified. “Hardly my first."
He lifted his glass toward me in a toast. After I lifted mine, he said, "To you, Charli with an I, and to learning more about you."

"Do you what?"
"Do I have an advantage?” He leaned closer. “Do I know your name? You see, I had the resort's reservations scoured. I wanted to send a gift to your room and confirm our dinner, yet Charli was nowhere to be found."
I took a deep breath. "Well, I'm here with my sister. I guess my name isn't on the reservation."

The sun had now fully set, falling below the water and the darkening sky was beginning to fill with stars, especially over the water.
"Would you believe, Batman?" When I didn't respond, he said, "Bruce Wayne?"
Though I pursed my lips, I felt the twinkle in my eyes.
