Today’s snippet is again from my new story, which follows Piper and Jon.
“I’m not sure what I expected,” he finally admitted.
Piper moved a strand of hair from her face. “Sorry, I know it’s late. I couldn’t sleep. And … you know … the messages …”
He choked back a soft chuckle. “They were meant to amuse you a little, not to give you sleepless nights.”
“They did. As in, they did amuse me.” She lifted her shoulder in a subtle shrug. “Now I’m here to say thanks. I can’t remember anybody ever care in that way.”
Jon scratched the back of his neck. “Look, I’d like to offer you to—”
“No,” she countered and added with a smile. “No, I really just wanted to say thanks—”
“How about breakfast tomorrow morning. In the camp kitchen. My treat. Bacon and eggs.”
Heat trickled through her as she contemplated his offer. After all, she didn’t know him, only that he’d cared enough to take his time to put a smile on her face with his small notes. She met his gaze as he waited for an answer. Was he not used to wait? He looked sexy enough to have any woman.
“That’d be lovely.” She heard her own words. “I look forward to it.”
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!
