Slowly she awoke from soothing dreams – warm and soft skin, familiar and masculine scent. Slightly she parted her lips and kissed his delicious pulse point – a soft moan in response.
Her eyes snapped open. She realized she must have fallen asleep during their rainy drive home from Upstate – now snuggling against his strong shoulder.
“We’re here – Beach Crest.” She heard his voice through the pattering raindrops on the roof.
She sat up, slipped away – put a little space between their heated bodies and grabbed for the door handle.
“S…should I…uh walk you to the door?”
She stopped in her movements. Lifting her head, she looked into his dark, puppy eyes – fixed his full and soft lips.
“I understand, but…but wouldn’t we regret?”
“Regret, after! Throwing away our friendship, our partnership for a few blissful minutes.”
“Hours,” she gave in. “I need this friendship. I need ‘US’.”
“Maybe we can expand us and have both?”
“Our partnership and…” He raised his eyebrows and shrugged.
“Maybe.” She inhaled deeply and lowered her voice. “But would you risk it?”
“Yes,” he confessed honestly, instantly.
She nodded and got out of the car, waiting for him to follow her inside.
“Tomorrow morning, you’ll be here, right? I won’t wake alone?” She nuzzled her flushed and satisfied body against his – eavesdropped in the silence after.
“I will.” He gently stroked her warm skin and laid his arms around her frame. “You know where I live. I can’t escape…I won’t escape.”
