WIP Joy Challenge - Day Eleven: Share a Line About Love or Hatred

For the month of January, I'll be taking part in the WIP Joy Challenge, created by Bethany A. Jennings (found via a share from Adam.C.Macdonald).

Here's a snippet from early on in my age-gap romance, where one of Jade's friends is talking about how great it would be if their whole group each had boyfriends.

“Okay, but my point still stands. Suggesting me and Mike hook up is like saying a penguin would enjoy a trip to the Sahara. Never going to happen. And besides, we don’t all need to be coupled off, you know?” 
“Yeah, but it would be fun, wouldn’t it? Going out on double dates and stuff.” 
“I guess, but I don’t even know if Chloe and Jon will get to the dating stage, they might just be fuckbuddies. And Kelly only just met Carl. Don’t count your chickens before they’re omelettes.” 
Maria sighed. “I know. I can’t help it though. I just want everyone to find their true love, get married and live happily ever after.” 
“Are you still drunk or have you seen one too many Disney movies?” Shaking my head, I climbed out of bed. “I’m going to see if Chloe and Kelly are awake. It’s time we started thinking about getting ready for work.”
