Whether it be his arm pressed to hers as they stand side by side at the sink or taking a solid fifteen minutes to make sure she’s as bundled as she can be before trekking into the unforgiving Maine winter.

It’s stupid, the near instant reaction she has to the completely innocent words. A slow, languid spark of heat curls in her stomach and presses out - a sudden clench in her thighs as she shifts in front of him. She’d blame the wine they had with dinner, but that certainly doesn’t explain the way she wants to bury her fingers in his hair and tug - lick at his throat and nip at the underside of his jaw.
She likes it when he talks. Likes it even more when he talks about her.
