“Whoa.” The first thing to register about her situation was not that he’d moved or that she’d tripped, again in front of him, or that her arms and legs had begun their transformation into gelatin. Instead, she noticed how quickly his heart beat beneath her hand, the one that had managed to land at against his chest, inside his shirt.
She pressed her palm to his skin, and the beating sped. Her fingers caressed the hair tickling her skin, and his grip on her backside tightened.
She glanced up at him. His gaze was focused on her and once again warm. His chest rose and fell with more rapid breaths than she’d previously noticed. He licked his lips. She bit hers as the desire to kiss him swelled.

His head dipped toward hers. She swallowed. Her legs had given out. She couldn’t decide to avoid this even if her life depended on it. She was staying in his arms unless he dropped her down on the ground, and if he did, she’d stay there, unable to drag herself to the house and wishing he’d kissed her.
