Until It Fades
K. A. Tucker
“I’m sorry, I don’t know what I was expecting when I got here, but it wasn’t you and I was nervous.”
You were nervous?” I can’t stop the weak giggle from escaping my lips.
His eyes roam my face. “It’s not every day that someone saves your life. And then I saw you and . . .” The softest sigh escapes his lips. “I haven’t actually said ‘Thank you’ yet.”
I train my eye on his Adam’s apple. He saw me and what? “There’s no need.”
“Of course there is. I’ve been lying in a hospital bed for the past week, thinking of what I’d say when I finally met you, and here I am now and even though I’m talking, I feel completely speechless.” He reaches up to toy with a wayward stand of my hair. I’ve all but forgotten my disheveled appearance at this point. “And in awe.”
You’re in awe?” I snort, and then my cheeks burn bright with embarrassment and I avert my gaze to the floor, because I just snorted in front of Brett Madden.
“I would be dead if it weren’t for you.”
