They reached her store and he stared at her car parked by the curb. âHarper doesnât know where you live or anything about you. That means youâre safe for now, but heâll probably search this area to find us. Stay cautious, okay? Drive your car from now on. Donât walk anywhere.â
âWhy are you avoiding my questions? You can tell me anything.â
âNot this. If you trust me, donât ask those kinds of questions.â He tightened his fingers around her forearm as she tried to jerk free from his grip. âListen to me, damn it. You mean a lot to me, but I canât tell you this. At least not right now. Thatâs nothing against you. Itâs all on me. I just need time to take care of this problem. Okay? Iâm fucking stressed, in a shitload of pain, and I donât need you to hound my ass.â He dropped his hand from her arm and scowled as though he just noticed the dirt and blood on his knuckles. âIâd like to go upstairs to clean up before you take me home. I donât want Alan to know what happened.â
Mia dug through her purse with shaky hands, so angry she didnât trust herself to speak.
He took the keys from her before the little pieces of metal slipped between her fingers, and he hugged her despite the grime on his skin and clothes.
Tears clogged her throat. Her mind screamed at her to push away from him, but the strength in his arms enveloped her and stole her will. His heartbeat soothed hers, and she no longer cared about his lies or if filth caked him.
At least not at the moment.
âI never meant for this to happen, Mia. I will fix this.â
âI know, but at what cost?â She pried her face from his chest to stare up at him. âYouâre nothing if not determined, but Iâm scared and confused. You have answers to my questions, but I wonât hound you for them as you so eloquently stated. I just thought we got past this. I thought you knew I would never insult or condemn you for whatever it is you did.â
âAnd I thought you knew not to push me too fucking hard.â His deep voice sent shivers of unease down her spine. âI have to keep certain parts of my past to myself.â
âWhatever.â Mia finally pushed against his chest for freedom and stomped to the stairwell door.
About the Author:
Writing is the fruit of happiness.
Amber Daulton lives her life by that one belief even though she normally isnât so Zen.
As a fan of contemporary, paranormal, and historical romance novels alike, she canât get enough of feisty heroines and alpha heroes. Her mind is a wonderland of adventure, laughter, and awesome ways of kicking a guy when heâs down. She probably wouldnât be too sane without her computer and notebooks. After all, whatâs a girl to do when people are jabbering away in her head and itâs hard to shut them up? Write! Nothing else works.
