"Okay, so that's the Elegance bouquet, one of each of the chocolate boxes: dark, milk and nuts and a magnum of Cristal? To be delivered on the eighteenth. Perfect." Charlie chuckled. "Pleasure doing business with you as well."

He hung up the phone and turned to find his brother Don standing behind him with a smirk on his face.

"You must have gotten into one hell of a fight with Amita if you need all that to make up for it."

"That?" Charlie pointed back at his desk phone. "Oh, that wasn't for Amita. That was for my financial planner, Sherryl." He leaned forward as if sharing something conspiratorial. "You wouldn't believe the tax shelters and investment opportunities this woman finds for me! She's amazing!" Settling back, he let out a contented sigh. "So I figure just after tax day is a great time to remind her how grateful I am."

"Just don't let Amita find out," Don cautioned.


Don raised an eyebrow at Charlie.

"You're sending a woman all that and she gets nothing?"

Charlie's eyes widened and he went for the phone, hitting redial.

"Good call, bro! Oh, hi, it's Dr. Eppes again! I need another order..."

Typical male. In fact, typical Charlie.
