“Are you alright?” he asked.
Sally put her palm on her forehead, feeling feverish.
“Yeah, I think so.” She looked at him. “Did I read that figure right? Five million dollars?”
“Yes.” He paused and searched her face. “It’s a lot of money, more money than I ever thought I’d hear, let alone be offered.”
Sally looked off into the distance, daydreaming.
“That kind of money could set us up for life.” She refocused on his face. “I mean, we’d never have to work a day in our lives.”
Jack sat down beside her. He closed his eyes while tilting his head back.
“It’s a very generous offer, that’s for sure.”
Sally grabbed his hand and stared into his dreamy eyes.
“We could retire and do the things we’ve always wanted to do. I could open my own little cafe. You could travel.”
“You mean, your cafe in the city?” Jack’s tone was like a bucket of cold water, causing Sally to sputter.
“I-I-I don’t have to have it in the city.” She turned away, letting go of his hand.
He swore under his breath.
“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to ruin the moment.”
Anger rose up in Sally’s chest.
“Why do you do that? Why do you insist on bringing up the city at a time like this?” She narrowed her eyes. “It’s like you’re trying to drive a wedge between you and me.”
His eyes flashed and without warning, Jack pulled her into his embrace.
“Because,” he briskly spoke. “You belong to Trevor and not me. Yet this is all I think about.”
His lips kissed her with pent-up passion and need. She responded with the same intensity, tongues dancing, and her body on top of his, his desire for her evident. She moaned, giving into him. All thought fled from her mind except one.
You have to choose, city or country.
Jack shifted and pain shot up her arm. She screamed in his mouth and pulled away.
“Ow!” Tears sprang to her eyes.
“I didn’t hurt you, did I?” Jack cradled her body, gentle so her injured hand didn’t twist.
She shook her head, her cheeks warm from the blush.
“No, it’s just my hand.” She peered at him through her lashes. “I’m… oh Jack, I’m so confused…”
Jack put a finger up to her lips.
“It’s okay, it’s my own fault.” He stared into her eyes for a long time. “I kissed you, remember?” He dropped his finger from her lips and ran his fingers through his hair.
