As he held her face and moved his closer so that he could kiss her, she couldn’t stop thinking about what happened last month. She saw him having dinner with another woman one night when she walked past a new French restaurant. The following day she confronted him about it and he told her that it was a business dinner. She believed him because she wanted to. But then, yesterday, she saw him going into the shopping plaza with the same woman and they seemed a little too chummy.
She wanted to march over there and confront them but she abandoned that idea because she didn’t want to embarrass herself. She walked away, anger and jealousy brewing inside her. Now here they were in the park and he was about to kiss her. No, she couldn’t let him do it–not when there were so many questions and doubts.
“No,” she cried and jerked her head back.
Startled, his eyes flew open and he stared at her, perplexed. “What’s the matter?” he asked.
“I saw you with that woman again yesterday at the shopping plaza. What were you doing with her, Scott? Are you going to tell me that it was business again?”
“All right. You’re going to find out anyway. The woman you saw me with is an old friend, Lucy who happens to be a real estate agent.”
She stared at him. “A real estate agent?”
“Yes. She was showing me different properties. I wanted to surprise you.”
“Yes. I bought a house for us to move into after we get married.”
Her eyes widened in shock. “You bought a house?”
“Yes and it’s in the neighborhood that you and I like that’s within walking distance from the harbor. I’ll take you tomorrow to see it.”
“Oh, Scott.” She threw her arms around his neck and hugged him tightly.
He buried his face in her hair. “You’re the only girl for me. I would never do anything to jeopardize what we have.”
She drew back to look at him. “Promise?”
He nodded, his expression very serious. “I promise.”
“Good.” She closed her eyes and puckered up.
