Today’s snippet is again from my new story, which follows Piper and Jon.
Now that Piper was standing in front of her neighbour, a very handsome neighbour none-the-less, to talk to him in person suddenly didn’t seem like a good idea anymore. But she hadn’t been able to go asleep. She’d been tossing and turning in bed, the small messages playing havoc in her mind. In the end, she’d decided to walker over instead of writing another note.
Jon wasn’t at all what she’d imagined. His warm chocolate brown eyes took her in. Was he disappointed in what he saw? More doubt crept up in her. She’d introduced herself. Wasn’t it now his turn to say something? He didn’t. He just stood there, wearing only some track pants, which hung very low on his incredibly sexy body, and a worn-out blue t-shirt with Perth printed right across the chest.
She bit her lip and blew out a breath. “My apologies—”
He held up his hand. “No, don’t be. I—”
“Expected another message?”
That slow smile that spread across his face, was about the sexiest thing she’d seen in a long time.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!
