Sarah slid the drawer open. A burst of frozen mist cleared, revealing a man with dark hair and riddled with bullet holes. Chuck sighed and stepped closer, looking down at the corpse. No flashes seemed to be forthcoming, and he was about to say so when the man gasped and opened his eyes.
Sarah’s eyebrows shot up into her hair, and a click behind Chuck told him that Casey’s gun was now trained on the man. For his part, Chuck just stood there, having suddenly forgotten how to move. Being the closest to the ‘corpse’, his wide eyes were the first the man’s locked on to. Chuck swallowed hard, and the man broke into a grin, cocking an eyebrow at him in what could only be described as a suggestive manner.
“Hey there,” he said smoothly. “What’s a pretty face like yours doing in a morgue like this?”
“Sarah, why is the dead man flirting with me?” he asked quietly, staring down in horror at the man in front of him.
The man propped himself up on his elbows. “It’s not every death I get to wake up to a face as adorable as that one,” he continued.
“Sarah, make him stop,” Chuck said, edging around behind her.
The man’s grin widened appreciatively as his eyes followed Chuck and landed on Sarah, who was now holding up her gun as well. “An adorable nerd and a sexy lady. I gotta die in California more often.” He snatched one hand away from her gun and kissed it. She let out a little noise of surprise.
