"Don't worry. I'll guide you through it."
Eve's breath hitched. She could hear her heart thumping in her ears. Blood rushed up her neck and to her cheeks. More than detecting his voice, she had felt it. His breath kissed the side of her neck when he spoke.
He seemed both close and not close enough.
'What am I thinking?!' She scolded herself. 'We just held hands earlier! This shouldn't affect me in any way! It's all an act! I can't take it the wrong way or it would be serious trouble.'
Ambryan leaned over her shoulder, trying to get a look at her face. "Evan, are you okay?"
Eve jumped. Her head snapped in his direction. She recoiled away from the closeness. She could have sworn that she would have hit his nose if she hadn't! This was a bit too much to her liking. She could hardly breathe for goodness sake!
If this is their new normal, she better have a drink beforehand.
Avery, Avery, Avery... I think all the readers will be onboard. What do you guys say? XD
Have a good day!
