I threw the apple rind I’d been holding into the trash across the room, sinking a perfect shot. “Three-pointer,” I said, throwing my hands up. “Basketball fan, huh?” David grinned at me. “Bill is,” I replied without thinking. “How about you?” “I’m a Chicago Bears fan myself.” “Ah. Football. I could see that.” “Oh?” “Sure, I can picture you as a quarterback, working the field. Leaving a trail of cheerleaders in your wake,” I said, biting my lip as I smiled. “Did you play in high school?” “Yes, though I would’ve preferred to focus on the swim team.” “So? Quarterback? Linebacker?” I paused, running my hand along the edge of Lucy’s desk. “Tight end?” “QB.” I nodded. “Thought so. I had a crush on our high school quarterback.” I cocked my head. “He looked a little like you, but not as tall,” I said, letting my eyes wander down his body. His hand twitched, and he quickly crossed his arms tighter. “What are you doing?” I lightly lifted my right shoulder, staring him down. “What?” “You’re flirting with me, even though you asked me to back off. Just like on the roof the other day.” He stopped, and I blinked at him a few times, unsure of what he’d say next. “Olivia, I’ll put on a show in front of your friends, at your work, whenever we’re in public. But I’m growing tired of pretending when we’re alone. Don’t tempt me,” he warned.
