Laying in the hospital bed, his head pounded, but he still didn’t want to pass up a chance to be alone with Crystal and kiss her. Yes, perhaps that would help him. He even imagined her in a nurse’s uniform and straddling him. “Hey man, could you swipe a bag of cookies and mints from the cafeteria?”
“Sure.” Paul winked and he hoped it meant he caught his hint.
After the door closed behind Paul, Kade hit the button on his bed so he could sit up more. When Crystal moved to sit in the chair, he patted the mattress beside him.
She looked uncomfortable. Had he misread her? He thought she was attracted to him.
Placing her purse on the empty chair, she sat down on the bed beside him and he couldn’t keep the grin off his face.
“Some party, huh?”
She shrugged. “Sorry you got mixed up with that—that burglar wasn’t it?”
“Probably. They usually don’t carry tear gas, though.”
Shit! When would he learn to keep his damn mouth shut. “I mean, that’s what the doctors think it was.”
She trailed a hand up his blankets to his chest and his breathing increased. “So what do thieves usually carry?”
“Guns or knives, I guess.” It was hard to think with her looking up from her golden lashes like that.
“Then I guess you were lucky she didn’t have either of those.”
He rubbed a hand across the back of his neck. “Yeah, well… ”
Her hand running down his arm was distracting.
“But I’d rather not talk about that.” He reached out and hooked his fingers in her hair. “Paul could return at any moment and I’ve wanted to feel your lips for weeks.” Not waiting for a response, he brushed his mouth across hers. Light. Gentle. Asking.
When she sighed against his mouth, he pulled her to him until she fell across his torso. Her lips tasted of cherries and vanilla. God, she felt good in his arms.
His tongue swept across her bottom lip, seeking an invitation. When she gave it, he growled and deepened the kiss. Their lips and tongues grew more insistent. He wanted to feel her skin beneath his hands. To kiss every inch and memorize her body.
His hand cradled her to him and he swept a hand up to her breast. Lace. Nice. She was full in his hands and he fought the urge to strip their clothes off and—
The door to his room creaked open and Crystal jumped off him as if he were a hot stove. Good thing he was covered up with the blankets or the hospital gown would show his excitement.
He should have asked Paul to drive downtown to pick up the food.
Paul cleared his throat. “Here’s all I could find.” Tossing him a bag of M&M’s and gum. “Ready to go?”
“We’ll leave you alone.” Crystal squeezed Kade’s hand.
For the hundredth time since meeting her, he wished she would stay. But she said good-bye and left with Paul.
Damn, he was glad Paul was already hooked with Ruby.
Otherwise, his jealousy would make him crawl out of that bed and bring her back.
