An entirely masculine grin had surfaced on his face by the time she had brought her attention from the speedily-disappearing car to the tall man at her side. Her eyebrow rose slowly as she returned, "With you smelling like a pond? As delicious as that sounds, I may have to pass on the offer."
Nevermind that she was craving like a maniac for what he was offering. She would bet he could see that, too. Bastard.
"Are you sure you want to be doing that?" Kade's grin was soon accompanied by waggling eyebrows, a wet t-shirt soon slinging around her waist to tug her nearer, and he ignored her shriek of protest. "Because not too long ago, you were dying for a little touch. Or so I gathered from how much you were protesting your inability to say 'no'."
She scoffed, rolling her eyes while trying to get out of the damp cotton restraint surrounding her middle. All that accomplished was forcing her to draw closer to his bared torso. Then again, it didn't really force her to. She simply stepped closer, hoping the offending wet material would go away. Not to mention, shirtless Kade was damn hard to resist. "That was hormones. And fun in teasing you."
"You're a great tease at that."
She smirked, leaning toward him more voluntarily now. "You best not forget it. Besides, I am unsure the shower can handle what would happen."
Now his grin started to falter. "What are you talking about?" he asked. "I replaced the tiles that had been scratched up, all by you, by the way."
The brunette let a soft laugh escape her, hands now easing up his chest. Her body's craving was quickly taking over. "Which was as much your fault as it was mine."
He answered with a snicker, "Alright, that I can't argue with."
"And that is why I believe the shower is inadequate. Because loosened, clawed tiles would be the least amount of damage that it would endure." A feral gleam had taken residence in her brown eyes. She had wanted to turn him down in the beginning, make him suffer slightly for the way he ditched her, but her defenses were weakened by his closeness, and really, she'd only be punishing herself in the end.
And after all, it would take care of one problem plaguing her at the moment.
Kade smirked again, drawing her along with him back into the house by guiding her with the wet shirt around her body. "Well, at least it'll have a proper send-off, won't it?"
