"Be nice."

I've just murmured pointed commentary into his ear about someone I don't know but who is doing something annoying across the room.

"Be nice."

I pull my head back, ostrich-style, and narrow my eyes at his profile.

"You've got to be kidding," I say.

His mouth is a lipless horizontal line. His eyes don't blink. He does not turn to look at me, which is fortunate, because if he did he'd see a black glare of disgust. I'm glad he's still in profile, because I can't stand half of his face right now, let alone the whole thing.
