"Come on, Dare. Show me your moves. Or did you run out already?"
Dare walked toward me until the top of my thighs hit the couch cushion. "I've got a ton of moves, flower. We haven't even tried half of them."
I blinked. "Really?"
He nodded. "I'm just trying to ease you into this, make sure you're comfortable. I don't want to move too fast."
Please, do, I thought.
The words that came out of my mouth were, "I'll believe it when I see it."
It had sounded good, quippy and totally aloof in my head.
But Dare took it as a challenge.
"I'm going to enjoy this," Dare said.
Before I could respond, he gripped the backs of my legs and lifted slightly, making me gasp and throw my arms about his neck. In the next instant, I was balanced on the couch back, my legs on either side of his hips as he took a step forward. There hadn't been that much space between us to begin with. So, the next thing I knew his body was mere inches away from mine.
My cheeks flamed, and he drank in my reaction.
