“You are pretty clueless,” he declared, ignoring her indignant protest. “You are so blind you dont know what you have in front of you!” He threw his hands up in the air in disgust. “You are smart you are funny, witty.” he went on.
Her lips kicked up at the corner. “You is kind. You is patient. You is important”
His eyes narrowed. “Are you quoting movie lines, right now?” he was incredulous.
“Are you listing my redeeming qualities right now?” she shot back.
“Oh Look at me,” he took a step towards her, “where is my rocking chair! Where are my cats? I am going to be the cat lady!”
She cleared her throat, and held up her hand to silence him. “Was that supposed to be me?” she asked, trying to bite back her laughter. “Were you mocking me?”
“You think its funny?” he was angry now. “I am trying to get you to see, that this pity party that you have going on, its not working! You are trying to attract a man! Not scare them away!”
She smoothed her hair from her face, and straightened her shoulders. Her eyes narrowed, all amusement gone. “Attract a man?” there was a hard edge in her voice. “Who appointed you my match maker? I am quite happy thank you very much!”
He made a sound of derision. “Bullshit!” he took another step towards her. He was crowding her, making her aware of him. the heat of his body. Forcing her to acknowledge the way her body responded to him. Her skin getting hot, her nipples tightening. the way she suddenly felt lightheaded at the scent of his cologne and soap scented skin. Every crazy sensation centred between her thighs in a wet sticky hot tension begging to be released.
“You are the most exasperating woman I have ever had the unfortunate business of knowing.” he told her.
“Gee thanks.” she muttered. “But again, I dont need anyone to point out the fact I am single and failing at my love life.”
He patted her the on shoulder. “Thats why I am here.” he cheered goodnaturedly.
“You didnt ask me what I wanted tho,” she whispered.
His hand stilled on her shoulder, the heat of his fingers searing her through her shirt. He thumbed her skin. He had been watching her intently, his blue eyes had grown dark. She shivered under his gaze,
“I am almost afraid to ask.” he replied hoarsely.
“This could only end in trouble.” he warned her. She had to touch him then. She flattened her hands on his chest, feeling the vibrations of his heartbeat beneath her palms.
“Thats my middle name.” she answered.
“I can believe it.” he lowered his head. “Just tell me, you werent waiting for me.”
“I would. But I am not a liar.”
He kissed her. A low rumble of desire emanating from him, came out a moan when he discovered her kiss.
“I suppose this ends your career at being my match maker.” she chuckled.
“My heart wasnt in it anyway.”
“Good. Now shut up and kiss me!”
“As you wish!”
