March 5th, 2020

Each time Gina would see John, he'd be working, and she would sort of blow past him like she owned the place. I mean, she did know the bartender! Their story gets a little more interesting, however, and it spans over the course of about six months, starting in the fall of 2015. Gina and John were on an Atlantic City trip with a group of their friends. Late at night, the group split up to go back to their separate hotels and rooms, but Gina and John (both lost) ended up running into each other. All wasn't lost though - they ended up kissing in an elevator! For about three months after that, Gina and John didn't speak to or see each other. The bar John bounced at even closed down.
