Snatched moments, that’s all they ever got.
Angelina watched him get dressed with mixed feelings. Was this really what her life had been reduced to? At her beck and call for a man who would never truly be hers?
“Do you have to leave so soon?”
His shoulders tensed and she bit her lip. She knew he hated when she got clingy, and his answer was as predictable as it was devastating.
“You know I do.”
“But it’s Valentine’s Day. I thought we might…”
She stopped speaking because he swung round to look at her. The misery edged on his face took her breath away. It wasn’t often he showed his feelings so clearly, and her heart broke all over again.
“Forget I asked,” she whispered. “I know what this is.”
The bed dipped as he sat down next to her and in the next instant, his warm lips were on hers, devouring her all over again. Doubts fled like they always did when she was in his arms. Nothing could touch her here with him.
He broke the kiss and rested his forehead on hers.
“I love you, you know that, but now is not the time for us.”
