Only a Kiss ~ Part 52
Ana bit her lip, not knowing what to say. She had no idea Brett felt so strongly for her. She had thought their night on the beach had only left her walking away with strong emotions.
Brett glanced at her lips, then her eyes, before they both leaned forward and kissed.
Ana had only thought their evening on the beach had been romantic. Brett’s water garden had been magical and the kiss they shared was one of love and tenderness. The one on the beach after Cindy’s wedding had been full of lust and passion. Although she enjoyed both kisses, she felt their garden kiss meant he felt they were headed towards a relationship as much as she did.
She laid her head on his shoulder and before she was ready, the driver pulled into her driveway.
“I can’t believe this lovely evening is already over,” said Ana.
“It doesn’t have to be,” said Brett, tracing his finger down her arm causing her a rush throughout her body. He leaned forward and kissed her gently on the neck before whispering. “I could come inside.”
She knew what he meant and desperately wanted to let him inside, but she also wanted a relationship, not a passionate frenzy.
“Not tonight,” said Ana, with a sigh. “Remember I do start a new job tomorrow and I have a feeling if you come inside I won’t be getting much sleep.”
Brett sat back. “I do understand. I also have a big meeting first thing in the morning, so as much as I hate to admit it, me not going inside is probably for the best.”
Ana smiled. “I really did have a wonderful time.”
“So did I,” said Brett, before leaning forward and giving her a good night kiss.
The next morning Ana felt like she was floating on air as she walked from the park to P.S. Shoes. The birds singing in the trees matched the way her heart soared and fluttered with every thought of Brett. He was everything she had hoped for and their date had been even more romantic than she could have dreamt.
She pushed the door to P.S. Shoes open at precisely nine in the morning and was met with Phillip’s smiling face. “Well you look like you had a good night.”
“I really did,” said Ana. “Thanks.”
Phillip turned to the woman working the counter. “Sandra, we’ll be in my office. If you need any help, just hit the buzzer. Thanks.”
Ana smiled at the woman Phillip had called Sandra. She was the same woman who had fainted the day before when Phillip had his allergic reaction. She grabbed Ana’s arm as she tried to walk by.
