“You look beautiful,” a familiar voice said.

I turned around. Christian was standing directly in front of me, only a few inches of air between us. The nearness made my heart race. I lowered my eyes. “Thank you. You look good too.”

“I want to dance with you,” he said, breathing deeply.

I looked up, glancing around nervously. “You can’t. You know that.”

He closed the small space between us until I was forced to step back. “I don’t care.” He moved toward me again.

My cheeks flushed, and I made the mistake of looking into his eyes; they burned with passion, and the lights above reflected in them, making them even more intense. He reminded me of a hungry wolf. I stepped back again. “We can’t.”

He moved forward. After me. I continued backing up to keep our bodies from touching, but he wouldn’t stop.

I glanced behind me. Christian was guiding me into the long, white curtains hanging from the ceiling. “We can’t do this, Christian. You have to stop.”

I felt the soft material part as I stepped backward into it; the silkiness of it against my back was like a hand caressing my skin. I sucked in air and continued to move into the white layers until they hid us completely.

Christian said nothing. His gaze left my eyes and traveled to my mouth, considering it like it was something he wanted to conquer. My lips parted in anticipation of what was to come. His fingers found mine, and he tugged my hand forward, pulling my body next to his. His other arm tightened against my back until I was pressed against him.

Christian’s lips fell onto my neck. Very gently, he kissed my skin. His mouth continued to trail up my neck until he found my lips. The kiss started out soft, but all of a sudden my arms were around his neck, trying to get him even closer.

“Um, you guys might want to stop.”

I immediately stepped back, my breathing coming in great gasps.

May was a few feet away, parting the curtains. “Sophie’s looking for you, Christian. And she’s mad.”

I looked back at Christian. He was staring at me, breathing just as hard and cheeks flushed. He smiled. “I better go.”

I nodded.

Christian remained where he was, still looking at me like he wasn’t finished. I didn’t dare move either. I didn’t want to.

“Oh, come on!” May said. She pushed Christian away. “And straighten your tie!”

Christian looked over his shoulder at me and winked before he disappeared.
