The doorbell chimed a mere three minutes before two o’clock and I took a deep breath before stepping to open the door.
My usual cocky demeanor was nowhere to be found as my brain took in the beauty that now stood before me on my front porch. This woman rendered me speechless, something no one else on this earth has ever managed to do.
My eyes met hers, and for a moment we both stood there staring at one another. This was a woman I had held in my arms. We’d once kissed so passionately that I could honestly say if that were all we’d shared I would have walked away satisfied. She’d willingly opened herself to me, offering up not only her body, but also her heart, and without even realizing it I had done the same. I wasn’t sure how it was possible, but she was even more beautiful today than when we met. Dark jeans were molded to her long legs, and a red low-cut sweater set off her thick mass of pale blonde curls. My eyes then traveled down to her feet where I found another sexy as hell pair of boots.
“Ryhann, it’s good to see you again.” I offered up a smile and panic momentarily filled me as I feared she may pass out in front of me. I watched as she regained her composure and we each took a step toward the other, opening our arms for a brief hug. In that moment of brief contact I felt her body go rigid beneath me.
Ohh-Kayy, that was awkward.
