I stiffened. Had that voice been female? It was gruff, but it could have been forced. I don’t remember. I mean, she could have been down there. I don’t want you to accuse her of doing something because I didn’t call roll while falling to my near death.
He did impress me, Carys admitted. But it wasn’t because of the dinner or even the incredible time we spent together afterward. And I do mean incredible.Don’t think we’re going to let you skimp on that part either, Jordana warned around another bite of fruit.
Carys shook her head on a laugh. It wasn’t long ago that she’d been the one prodding for all of the romantic details about her best friend and Nathan. The steamy parts of Carys’s time with Rune had been beyond amazing, but this morning she was floating on air for another reason as well.Last night, Rune opened up to me like never before. About his past, his life, a lot of awful things he’s survived. Her heart tightened now, just recalling all he’d shared with her. I needed him to let me in, and he did. It was a really big step for him. For us.Nova studied her. Sounds like he probably needed that talk as much as you did.
Carys nodded. Rune hadn’t trusted her with all of the secrets and demons that still haunted him, but in time, she hoped he would. After last night, she felt confident there was little that could stand between them now.I’m glad it’s working out, Jordana said. It’s good to see you like this, Car.
I’ve never been happier, Carys admitted. Now, I only hope nothing goes wrong tonight.
As she said it, her mother breezed outside accompanied by Brynne. What’s going on tonight?Then why are you even taking this class? she asked, her mouth still agape.
I had room for an elective, I said with a shrug.Fuck it. I leaned across the desk, grabbed the back of her neck, and pulled her into a quick, hard kiss, uncaring that I’d just gone ship-wide public with our relationship. That’s right, guys. The gorgeous, smart girl is mine. I broke the kiss before she could respond, and grinned. I took the class because you did.
Are we okay about the ship thing? I had to know.Exactly how much money do you have? she asked, incredulous.
