He launched into flirting.


“You have such lovely eyes, Cathy. I hope that’s okay to say, just that when you frowned I felt like smoothing it away.” He gave her a look laden with promise. It was a practiced look.

Cathy gazed at him. He took a deep breath and slowly put out his hand to hold her face and smoothed the place a frown had been.

“I guess you have someone in your life waiting for you to get home. You wouldn’t want to stay a while and talk to me about your plans for the place.” He kept his voice low and looked at her lips. It was no hardship. He felt an overwhelming urge to kiss her. He bent his head to be even closer to her as she stayed there stilled under his hand and his gaze.

‘She has to be attracted to me. She has to be, or she’d have shaken off my touch and be backing away.’

“I don’t have anyone, special that is. I’d like to stay a while.”

Owen moved so slowly he felt as if he had entered some dream state, but he reached her lips with his, and holding her face gently, he kissed her. Her lips were soft and she kissed him back. It felt so good he couldn’t pull away as he intended.
