But he continued grinning. “See? We’re finally getting to know one another. I didn’t know you’d been a waitress before you moved to Alisson.”
She stopped in the middle of the bar and faced him. “I don’t know what your game is, but—”
But before she could finish her sentence, his hand reached out and warm fingers touched her face. Her mind froze. The angry words vanished.
It was just a fleeting gesture, but one she felt right down to the bottoms of her soles. “I’m too old to play games, Stacey. You’re breathtakingly beautiful. I ache for you.” His eyes darkened, his voice turned gravelly. He dropped his hand. “But I get the message. You’re not interested. If you ever change your mind, though, let me know. We’ve tried avoiding each other…”
She opened her mouth to disagree, but he put a finger on her lips, effectively making it impossible to form thoughts, let alone say a single word.
“You’ve been avoiding me. And I’ve tried to stay out of your way. It’s not working. I still think about you all the damn time. Maybe we should try something different. I want you even more now than I did when I first laid eyes on you in the dojo. And don’t even try to tell me you don’t remember that moment. You reacted to me as well. I noticed. I notice everything about you.” With a final touch to her arm, he walked away.
