They’ve been together long enough for him to forget he’s already told that story. Not once or twice, but several times. She can it repeat word for word. If he wasn’t watching for her reaction she could mimic his gestures. The eyes dart up and to the right […]
His thoughtful eyes studied her tenderly, searching for the source of the lines around her tense smile. He must have seen the barrage of complaints people lodged her way, still pounding at the sides of her head. Strong arms wrapped around her back to draw her in for […]
