This is the first time Anna and Kai see each other after the New Year's summit in NYC.)
The look in his eyes dared me to pull away again. I sunk my fingers into the hair at the nape of his neck. “I’m trying to talk to you,” I said. “Yes, I know. But I’d rather not.”
In one step he had me against the table, the back of my thighs hitting the edge as he pressed his body flush against mine.
A whimpering gasp sounded from my lips. I tried not to stutter, grasping his hair tighter. “I need you to be serious.” His blue eyes scorched me. “Oh, I’ve never been more serious.”
He’d hurt me plenty, and I refused to be his punching bag. I wanted to stare Kaidan down, but when he turned to face me I was distracted by the girth of body beneath his face. I eyed the layers of muscle in his arms, chest, and abs. He was ripped! Was he living at the gym these days? His already toned belly now boasted a six-pack. Muscles didn’t usually do it for me, but I had to admit his tall frame wore it well. I swallowed and looked back up where he’d been patiently waiting for me to finish my perusal. I cleared my throat and crossed my arms.
Anyways ta-ta for now my darlings I shall return sooner than you think. *Kisses* x
