You’re sorry? Lady Sarah said scornfully. I find that difficult to believe.
Oh. Jensen laughed. That’s doubtful.I gritted my teeth until my jaw ached. There’s nothing to talk about.
There’s a lot to talk about, he corrected, and then he smiled. And we will talk.We won’t be—Jensen hauled me against his chest and lowered his head until his lips weren’t even an inch from mine. He was so close I could feel the warmth of his breath and almost taste his kiss. My eyes drifted shut as a riot of sensation rocketed through me.
When he spoke, his lips brushed mine. Exactly.Jensen let go and winked. He caught the edge of the door, holding it open. You better get inside or you’re going to be late.
For a moment, all I could do was stare at him, and then I bounced out of it. Jerk, I said, storming past him.
He laughed, and while that sound was all kinds of lovely, I wanted to drop kick him in the back of the head. Instead, I shot him a dark look before swinging around a cluster of people near the entrance to the gymnasium. As close as I was, I could hear bits and pieces of their conversation.Aloha means HELLO
AND good-bye, Part one
I’ve canceled yet another mother-daughter night, so my mom stops by my room.I’m sorry I canceled, Mom. I’m just feeling out of sorts.
She immediately presses the back of her hand to my forehead.Mentally, not physically, I clarify. I can’t get the image of Mystery Girl’s hand on Olly’s shoulder out of my head.
