He enjoyed their conversations both in person and on the phone. She made him laugh. Unlike other women he’d dated she never put any pressure on him. Not once had she demanded to see him. She’d accepted and understood that he had work obligations during the week. Addie never sucked up to him either. When she didn’t agree with him, she let him know. She even attempted to convince him to see things her way. And now after a long week, he had her all to himself. When he left for his meeting in Hartford that morning, he resigned himself to the fact he wouldn’t see Addie until tomorrow. However, when his last meeting ended early the only thing he’d been able to think about was getting back to Providence early enough to see her. Her agreement to stop by after her own meeting only sweetened the day.
“Not much to see out there tonight,” Trent said when he re-entered the living room and found Addie by the windows. “Usually you get a great view of the sunset from that window.” Trent stopped behind her and wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her against him.
As if they’d done it a hundred times before, she rested her head against him, and placed her own hands over his. With the simple action, a sense of pure contentment struck him and he envisioned them standing like that every night watching the sunset over the city.
“I’d love to see it sometime.”
She’d made a clear statement, but he detected the question in her voice. “You will.” He didn’t want there to be any doubts in her mind as to his intentions. “You’ll enjoy the sunrises from up here, too.” If she hadn’t been in her arms, he would’ve missed that she held her breath for a moment at his mention of sunrises. “Since there’s not much to see out there tonight, why don’t we find something else to do? We can put on a movie. Or if you’re hungry we can see what’s in the kitchen?”
Turning in his arms, Addie smiled at him then before he could make the first move she placed a gentle kiss on his mouth. Although gentle and over all too soon, the single kiss warmed his very soul and Trent could do nothing but stare at her when she broke contact, his mind busy processing the change in his emotions.
