His warm breath skirting across my exposed neck offered me reassurance while the rigidity of his body sent another message.
His grip of me, the way he held me against him, offered no softness or comfort. Though I couldn’t see his face, I knew without a doubt that this was the man from the gathering. I didn’t know how he’d entered my house or how long he’d been present. At the moment, that seemed irrelevant. All that mattered was he was here now.
His cologne from before was replaced by a masculine scent reminding me of outdoors. This man was wind and rain and cool spring nights with the fury and power notorious with our storms. In his hold, the air around me shifted as if a barometer were falling and the atmosphere was changing.
Slowly, his fingers moved, loosening their grip on my lips.
“How—?” I began.
His hand resumed its position, pressing my lips harder than before, causing them to flatten against my teeth. Though he’d promised otherwise, the pressure brought a copper taste to my tongue and tears to my eyes.
“Don’t speak unless you whisper,” his command came through gritted teeth. “I’ll explain later. Nod if you agree.”
Again, I nodded.
Immediately, the pressure lessened. Once his hand was gone from my mouth, I moved my lips and jaw from side to side. Though he’d released my face, I wasn’t free. My body was captive to the strength of his grasp. One of his arms was still around my waist holding me tightly against the hardness of him. When he’d released my mouth, he’d moved his other arm across my upper chest, keeping my shoulders to his front.
It was the arm holding my waist that garnered my attention. Though his gruff voice was all business, his body was reacting to our proximity, growing harder against the small of my back.
