Tennessee Heat Chapter 9

***  He knew she was uncomfortable so kept his leer to himself, but it was hard. How long had he imagined her here like this? Too long!  The way she sat at the edge of her seat as if ready to take flight at the slightest provocation kept him from making any fast moves lest he spook her.  He might’ve been wanting her for the better part of a year, but who says she felt the same? The thought made him sit up in his chair and for a few miserable seconds he imagined the worst. Had he been fooling himself all this time? She wasn’t exactly acting like a teenage girl in love. If anything she seemed more distant now than ever before. The sudden pain in his heart, brought on by his thoughts, was almost unbearable.

No! He shook his head inwardly. He refused to believe that. Hadn’t he sensed the same interest in her a time or two? Hadn’t he weaved dreams around the look in her eyes more than once? It didn’t matter, he wanted her and he meant to have her even if he had to break down every last one of her barriers.  Besides, the thought of dating her was very appealing. It had been a while since he’d played that game. It seems like once he left high school the world had changed. Everything moved faster these days, and not many people seemed to take the time needed to learn about the person they planned to spend the rest of their life with. He liked the idea of wining and dining her, showing her the places he enjoyed and sharing more of who he was with her.  He’d been so preoccupied with her that he’d almost forgotten what day it was. “Oh shit, it’s Sunday.” He looked at his watch a little crestfallen.

“I have to go in a little bit. Please stay. I’ll try to hurry back…” “No it’s okay I have to get going anyway.”  She said that as if she didn’t believe him, like she thought he was just trying to get rid of her. He was pretty sure that the only way to convince her that he was serious was by showing her, so he left it for now. “I don’t think I like the idea of you going back there.” “It’s my home, where else would I go?” She felt a little testy because, sure, the place was a dump, but it was the only home she had. 

She reminded herself that he hadn’t meant anything by it and calmed down as she got up to get dressed. He was torn between leaving her and taking care of his responsibilities or spending the rest of the day with her.  It was a hard choice to make but the kids who depended on him had to come first before his own needs. He was loyal if nothing else. But for the first time that loyalty was being sorely tested.

I just hope that she quickly realizes that Chase has real feelings for her and Chase soon becomes the over protective, Jordan Silver alpha male we all know and love. I’m so excited to finally read the rest!
