“You... hem...” Taking a deep breath, she squeezed his hand. “You probably saw me around the stables.”
“Yeah...” No, it’s something more. Something you don’t want to tell me. “Probably.” Letting go of her hand, he reclined on his seat. “So what are you going to do? Where are you going to live?”
“I don’t know.” She folded her arms, a sign he interpreted as a refusal to talk about it. “I’ll worry about it tomorrow,” she added noncommittally. “Now, if you don’t mind, I’ll take you to your room.” Rising, she picked up the empty dish and went to the kitchen. “So I can check on my father for the rest of the night.”
“Of course.” He rose, ready to go. “I’m so tired nothing could keep me awake tonight.”
“I hope so.” After leaving everything in the sink, she clutched a couple of candles and blew out a few others. “Here.” Having handed him the lit candle, she walked to the staircase, and he tagged along.
“Your room is right over there.” She directed the candlelight toward a door at the far end of the landing. “I’ll be here if you need anything.” She pointed at the door behind her. “So good night—”
“No, wait.” Clutching her arm, he detained her. “Are you sure...” Then he dragged her forward, so close her warm body suddenly pressed against his. “Really sure you don’t need anything?” So close, he could have easily kissed her.
