The plastic tub lands on the counter with a thunk. Ryan Morton towers behind it, hands shoved into the pockets of her jean jacket and eyes fixed over my shoulder as though she can’t be bothered to look at my face.

Surprise bubbles up in my throat. For a second, I don’t know what to say.

‘Where did you get these?’ I manage eventually as I pick up the tub and hold it to the fluorescent lighting that beams down from above us.

Inside are what appear to be at least thirty individually wrapped candies, perfect little balls in a bright, glossy red. Atomic Fireballs.

Ryan hops over the counter and sheds her jacket and backpack in one fluid motion before tossing them towards the back office.
