the last book I ever read (Dawnie Walton's The Final Revival of Opal & Nev, excerpt seven)

from The Final Revival of Opal & Nev by Dawnie Walton:


I had a few girlfriends who wanted access, but I had to warn ’em, “You might be disappointed by the pillow talk.” I’m not saying Beau was dumb—just that he hadn’t been exposed to much. Case in point: During the rehearsals I was picking up lunch for everyone one day, so I give him a menu and he says he’ll have the corned beef. But when I bring it back he’s opening it up and poking at it, digging around in the bag. I ask him, “Beau, what’s wrong with your sandwich?” and he says to me, completely serious, “I thought it came with corn.” So he certainly wasn’t a man of the world—certainly wasn’t reading, like, the Pentagon Papers every morning. Physically, though? Freakin’ adorable. Like a bumpkin Bon Jovi, in the face.
