Just trust me.
That’s what he says.
But how can I trust someone who has that hungry look in his eyes?
He says we’ll be okay, that he can keep my ex-husband away from me.
But am I just jumping from the frying pan into the fire?
Too hot to tell.
She was his best friend’s sister. He had to protect her. He had to keep her ex-husband from harming her, and yet keep hands off. That was the code, wasn’t it?
Maybe so, but he was beginning to understand there was a force stronger than that code. Just how long could he keep her close and not end up touching her? Only time would tell.
She had to be able to trust him. Could he do it?
