Runes Series: Book 3
“Behave,” I warned, grabbed his hand and brought it back to my waist. He chuckled, the sound sexy.
“You scratch and I scratch back.”
Now he was putting ideas in my head. “Sounds fair.”
“I love it when you agree with me.” He planted a kiss on my nose. “Last night must have been great. You had a smile on your face earlier when I stopped by.”
“Watching me sleep is creepy.”
“I like creepy, but I hate this new sleeping arrangement.”
Me too. We’d agreed on brief goodnight and morning kisses while Mom was gone. No sleepovers. No risking things getting out of hand. Mom was my chastity belt, her impeccable timing just when things got interesting never failed to amaze me.
In one smooth move, he rolled us over, so he was on top. “Tell me about last night.”
Was he serious? I couldn’t think. “I, uh… uh…”
“Breathe, Freckles,” he whispered.
Stinker. “I had Dad back and it was great, but we lost to the Grizzlies. A win would have made the night perfect.”
“I’m sure having you there made it memorable for him.” After another long kiss, Torin shifted. Cool air rushed in to replace him and I shivered. “Come over to the mansion when you’re ready. I need to see Blaine about something.”
“Is everything okay?”
“He wants to move out, but I want him to stay. We have to stick together despite our petty differences. He’s an asset I don’t want to lose.” He ran a finger along my nose and stood.
Once he left, I sipped the coffee and smiled. It was scary how he knew what I liked. He paid attention to details. One of his many loveable qualities. The ding of my phone greeted me when I left the shower.
Cora. I texted her back, then got ready as fast as I could.
