“Thank you?” She asked it as a question in a breathy voice.  Her wounds did feel better and she glanced down, seeing that some of them were miraculously starting to close.  She had definitely lost control of herself and the situation.
“You’re welcome,” he said looking dreamily and directly into her eyes.
“Criminy, that was the sexiest you’re welcome I’ve ever heard.” The words fell from her mouth before she could stop them. His voice was soft and deep. But the tone … the tone managed to stroke her entire body all over again. The electricity was palpable between them.
Then she thought back to his previous behavior; what an arrogant ass he’d been and how she had detested him. She thought about getting up and walking out, since she wasn’t having the sharp pain anymore. But her body seriously objected, it had gone to the dark side and it was staying.
She drank him in; this was much closer than she had been to him before. He had a chiseled strong square jaw and full kissable lips, but they were completely out done by the intensity of his exotic golden eyes. His arms were heavily muscled and the size of her thighs. His skin was like bronzed silk. She took in the entire length of him again; he had an energy that emanated from his body that demanded attention. He somehow managed to be sleek, long, intensely muscular and amazingly masculine all at the same time; like a panther, a big sexy cat, staring his intense yellowish gaze into her.
“Are you warm enough?” He inquired in a deep sexy drawl; he had just a hint of accent she hadn’t noticed before. She couldn’t place it, but just the sound of it slithered out wrapped around her and slowly whispered ‘sex’.
Her mind betrayed her next as she thought about her books and her dreams. What usually happens at this point? Should I begin running my fingers through his hair, do I stroke him? Should I … and then he leaned in and kissed her.
His hand was back to her belly, and he turned in and lightly brushed his lips against hers. She had wanted this so badly in her dreams and now she just felt horribly nervous. With all of her wishing and dreaming and hoping, and even with the aroused state she was in, the fact that she had no practical experience at being intimate, and barely any at kissing was all she could think of right then, and her body tensed. She began to tremble and wonder what came next, as the fear, excitement, anxiousness, and desire all came to her at once.
