Tennessee Heat Chapter 7


She’d just this minute been thinking of him, wondering if she’d ever see him again. And just like magic, as if she’d conjured him up, there he was. She heard his tortured whisper and knew where it came from.  He’d never seen her quite like this before, and though she could now admit to herself that it was for him that she’d done this, his response made her feel shy. She looked up at his greater height as he stopped in front of her, close enough that she could see the way his nostrils flared. When he reached for her she didn’t pull away, though she couldn’t even if she’d wanted to, her legs had gone to mush. One hand went to her waist while with the other he brushed a trail down her cheek with the back of his fingers. It was the most natural thing to fall into his chest when he pulled her in closer.  And when his lips touched hers, lightly at first, as if giving her that last chance to pull away, it was she who moved the last few inches. Letting him know without words as she opened her lips wider beneath his, that she wanted his touch. She melted into him, her inexperience plain to him as she followed his lead. Her tongue tentatively touched his before he drew it into his mouth and his arms tightened around her. Her body which had been stiff turned to jelly as she lifted her arms around him.

When he finally lifted his head they were both out of breath. He stared down at her, enjoying the feeling of having her here like this at last. “You look amazing; but I’m burning that dress. “No you’re not.” “We’ll see.” The way he kissed the tip of her nose was almost as intimate as the kiss they’d shared, and for the first time since their early acquaintance she felt awkward around him. She didn’t know what to do with herself. Her hands still rested on his shoulders and her head still leaned back so she could look up at him. It was the way he looked at her that made her feel gauche more than anything else. 

She’d never seen such hunger in his eyes before. At least not when she was supposed to. She’d caught a look or two before when they were both pretending not to notice each other. But this was the first time she’d experienced the full brunt of its force. “What’re you doing out here by yourself beautiful?” He brushed a lock of hair that the wind blew, out of her face. His eyes followed the way her throat worked as she swallowed nervously at his touch. “I just needed some time alone.” He knew from picking up conversation between his sister and mother that some of the girls didn’t like Annabelle. He also knew who the ringleader was.
