As she reached for her underwear, the door opened. Jerking to a straight upright stance, ignoring the hammering in her chest, she stared for a second. A scream was stuck in her throat, almost choking her, she tried to let it out but in vain. Instinctively, she grabbed the soap and threw it at the person standing in the door.
The man didn’t budge.
She looked around, grabbed for her face washer, and threw that at him as well, even as she admitted to herself about the uselessness of the piece of cloth.
He caught it and a frown crossed his face. “Will you stop it?”
Finally able to, she shouted at the top of her voice. “Out! Get out!”
But he only cocked a lazy brow at her.
Holding on to the towel with one hand, she searched for something else to throw at him. “Who are you? What are you doing here?”
He raised his other brow as well. “Me?”
Although the steady drumming of her heartbeat still pulsed in her ears, the initial scare inside her abated. Despite a startling tingle tiptoeing down her spine and worry washing over her, her feet remained rooted to the floor, because there was something about him that didn’t scream danger to her. “Can you see anybody else here?” There could be no mistaking the hard note of annoyance in her voice.
His gaze flicked down to her chest where it paused for a moment before their eyes met again. Or was he checking out her scar? Awareness came over her, and she wished she had something to cover it up with.
And finally, he told her the reason of his intrusion. “I own the house.”
