"Well, if teaching is 73rd, what's 52nd?" Kalin asked as he cut into his steak.
She laughed as she picked up a slice of pancakes. "I don't know, NASA?"
"Controller or astronaut?"
"Controller," she said definitively. "Can you see me in a Space Shuttle?"
He smiled. "Hey, you rode a motorcycle didn't you?"
"True," she said, pointing the tip of her knife at him.
"Okay, so what's 22nd on the list?"
For a moment she scrunched her face, thinking. "I don't know. Rock star?"
Interest descended on him. "Really?"
"Yeah, but seeing as how I don't play anything and I can't sing to save my life--I'm thinking that's not going to get me very far."
He laughed and sawed more meat off. "Okay, what's eighth on this list of yours?"
"Eighth? Hmm..." She cut a chunk off her pancakes, took the bite, and chewed thoughtfully. She took a drink to wash that down.
"How about a big city crime reporter?"
His eyebrows shot for the ceiling. "Crime? That sounds a little dangerous, don't you think?"
"Ugh. I think it sounds exciting. You know, Perry Mason without the law books, figuring out whodunit and why. Sounds pretty cool to me."
Kalin, however, didn't look entirely convinced. "Well, you don't look like the criminal stalking kind to me, so what's number two?"
Her eating slowed as she realized that all but one slice of her pancakes was gone. She shrugged. "I'd always kind of thought about nursing."
"Nursing? Really?" He stopped eating to gaze across at her, and her pulse jumped into her throat with the intense interest in his eyes. "So, why didn't you do that?"
Again she shrugged as if it meant nothing to her. "Long hours, late nights away from your family. It just didn't seem very practical." With all the energy of a dead leaf, she cut the last two bites of her pancakes in half. However, they didn't even look appetizing anymore. Suddenly she was very tired, to the point of wanting to fall asleep right there. She laid her fork and knife down and sat back.
"So," he finally said after he took a long drink of the soda the waitress had come to refill at some point, "that brings us to number one. You, Danae Scott, can now be anything you want to be... the world is your oyster. What is your number one?"
