Julia appeared placated by his reply. I watched her subtly, my hand tensing on Logan’s leg as she took another bite of stew before slowly training her sight on Jax’s date. I wasn’t sure ‘date’ was the correct term to use, but anything else seemed too crude even in my own head.
His barstool swiveled toward me. His relaxed features and easy smile sent my stomach into a full somersault.I did. Finished a while ago. He took my hand and pressed a kiss to my palm, his eyes never straying from mine. They spoke on their own—told me he was pleased to see me—and right there, with that single look, I was at ease.
He’d always had a way about him, but since Valentine’s, I could no longer deny or fight the pull of his charm. I hadn’t figured out whether that was a good thing.I smiled back, forcing myself to ignore the two guards watching us.I didn’t know you were still in town, or I’d have called you to join me, Logan continued, patting his lap for me to sit.
I lifted the bag in my hand. Can’t stay. Bringing lunch to Luke at his office.He pulled my hand to bring me closer, dragging me down until I collided with his chest. Your office call to him better not be anything like mine, he whispered roughly, then placed a gentle kiss to my ear.
Ah, so Logan still had a hint of jealousy where Luke was concerned. It was ridiculous, yet it left me with a cheeky grin.
I straightened, adjusting my coat, and casually replied, Doubtful, but you never know.Can I have that? I asked, taking it from him. Not only was it a choking hazard, it was hers: Natasha’s. She must’ve been in a real hurry.
His bottom lip shot out, his chin quivered, and I knew what was coming. I pulled my keys from my pocket and handed them to him in exchange. His sullen expression jumped to one of excitement immediately.Thank you, I said, kissing his head before peering over at Gillian. I need this room cleared of her belongings tonight, then the rest of the house tomorrow. I want everything of hers gone.
Yes, sir. Where would you like me to have it stored?My brows furrowed. Don’t store it—just get rid of it. Donate it or something, I don’t care. I just want it gone. And make any photos she’s in disappear.
