“Thank you,” she murmurs with tired gratitude.
“I’ll go. I just need a moment.”
I sit down on the bed. “There’s no rush. I don’t have to leave for another half hour.”
Her eyes close. The poor thing; she’s exhausted. For some reason, I get the sense it isn’t just because of our sexual activities. She did seem stressed before….
“Hop in the shower with me?” I suggest, stroking her hair back from her face.
She opens her eyes, and suspicion is evident. “A shower?”
“Yeah.” I grin with a shrug. “The act of being underneath a spray of water used to clean oneself?”
“Smart-arse,” she grunts with a smile. “Um… Okay.”
Charlie sits up and takes my offered hand. I lead the way and get the hot water started. She seems timid; maybe she isn’t used to too much interaction with a guy after the sex is over. Mind you, I don’t usually make a habit of dragging these things out. But Charlie is different. The attraction I have for her is completely new for me. Without even knowing her at all, there is still a sense of connection. At least, for me there is.
