A few strides and he was standing in the middle of her living room. A dark green knit shirt showed beneath his brown leather jacket, and she was fascinated by the way the combination matched the color of his eyes.
She realized she was staring when he asked, “Is something wrong? Am I too early? I know I’m not late.”
“Um, no. I was just admiring your...you, to be honest. Your eyes change colors, sometimes green, sometimes brown. You’re so...”
Right before her, his eyes darkened, and he made a sound, part chuckle, part incomprehensible mutter while grasping the back of his neck in that way he did when he was uncomfortable. He took a step toward her. Her heart jumped toward him. She wondered if he was going to kiss her. That would be a nice change, since she’d been the one making all the moves up to this point. Which was funny, now that she thought about it, because she’d never kissed anyone first. Ever.
Her breath stalled while his gaze skimmed her neck and then lingered for a bit on her mouth.
“I’m sure ‘so’ must be a good thing,” he said, his voice a ragged whisper. A warm shiver skittered across her skin.
“Pretty good,” she managed.
“Grab a jacket.” She felt his voice like a warm breeze. “We need to get out of here.” “Why?” “Because I promised myself I would keep my hands, and my mouth, off you until we get to know each other better. And that’s not going to happen if you keep talking and...looking at me like that.”
“Okay...” she wheezed, because her heart seemed to have expanded to fill all the space in her chest, leaving no room for much-needed oxygen. She wanted to know him, too. So much.
Flynn’s words flashed through her mind. Maybe he was right that dating was like an interview. She’d just never realized it, because she’d never thought of anyone in those terms before or wanted them to think of her like that. She’d never wanted the interview, so to speak. She did now. Ally turned around and picked up her bag and the jacket she’d placed on top of it earlier and wondered how she was going to manage slow and casual.
After they were settled in his pickup, he pulled it onto the road and asked, “Do you mind if we make a quick stop on the way out of town?”
“Nope. I’ll trust that we’re not going to be late for...whatever. I don’t even know where we’re going, remember?”
“Ah, that.” He glanced her way, a proud-of-himself smile on his face. “I was thinking maybe dinner and a movie?”
Joy swamped her so thoroughly she couldn’t have stopped her goofy grin even if she’d wanted to. He’d remembered.
“You have no idea. Well, that’s not true, because you obviously figured it out.” “Well, you pretty much told me.” Tag slid her a shy smile. “And I’ll admit to paying attention when I’m interested.”
Yikes. What a perfect thing to say. Already this was the best date she’d ever had and it had barely even gotten started.
