With a smile, she pressed her mouth between his shoulder blades. “You didn’t get a reminder last night?” she murmured teasingly, and he chuckled again, poking at the bacon. He was quiet for a brief moment before he cleared his throat.
“I, uh, think you were a little too tied up to fully remind me,” he said quietly, and though she couldn’t see his face, she could almost hear the blush and the boyish smile in his voice. What a stark contrast from last night.
I’ve just arrived home and I’ve seen there’s an update for TEoKE. I haven’t read it yet but I’m so excited that I have finished bearded!Peeta so I could post it now instead of tomorrow morning as I planned. Amy you’re the best!
