My skin is tingling, my lips are parted, and I can feel the space between my lips and hers as though an electrical current traveled between us. I want…What do I want? Whit lowers her face towards mine and I think she will kiss me. Yes, that’s what I want!
But instead, she places her lips beside my ear and murmurs, “I think you’ll be just fine tonight.” Her breath in my ear and the soft brush of her cheek against mine sends delicious shivers down my spine and I’m left thrumming as she steps back, deliberately breaking the tension.
Focused, smart and undervalued. It’s like people can’t imagine beauty and brains existing together. I’m not saying I’m the most gorgeous thing in the world, but I’ve never had a problem getting dates- or anything else I want for that matter. Life can be tough, but I know I can be tougher. That is, until I met Tasha. With her tan skin and short brown hair, she came into my life like an unwelcome pest. I don’t have time clean up her messes-including her younger brother William. There’s something about her though, lucky for me, I don’t have any interest in finding out what that is.
