“Why do I feel like she knows something I don’t know?” Alyssa asks in a lowered voice as she and Max head back outside.
Max laughs and the smile that lights up his face tugs on Alyssa’s heart. He really is handsome. He reaches for her hand as they step outside the house and she doesn’t pull hers away. Though she still isn’t sure how she feels about his past, she can’t deny that he seems to be changing in front of her. Besides, the feeling of warmth creeping up her arms at his touch is too nice to let go of for now.
He opens the door for her and helps her into the seat. Only then does he let go of her hand, and immediately she misses the warmth.
“Where are we going?” she asks as he slides into the driver’s seat. They are in his BMW, and she can see why he doesn’t want to get rid of the car. The leather on the seats molds itself to her body, and she feels like she is sitting on foam.
“Do you like Italian?” He glances at her with a sly smile.
Does she like Italian? Her mother, while not Italian, use to cook her own pasta at home, so Alyssa grew up eating Italian. In fact, that is one thing she has really missed since being at college, her mother’s cooking.
“Love it,” she answers and can’t tame the smile spreading across her own lips.
When they arrive at the restaurant, he hurries to open her door and takes her hand once again. This time his fingers lace through hers and fit like a glove. Another piece of her guard chips away.
