The bottle was centered on the silver tray. Trey had poured the wine – both glasses sat on the tray, in front of the bottle. Very ceremonial – but then, everything was ceremony with Trey. We were celebrating the signing of a major business deal, with the undercurrent of having been brought together after a two year separation.
“Good business, Marissa, good business.” Trey raised his glass to me.
Was it good business? Was our personal business a “good business”? Only time would tell. I raised my glass to him, nodding and saying “So far, Trey, yes – good business.”
