I sniff. “You smell like my body wash.”
I can’t help but grin as I bring her closer. “God you’re so in love with me. It’s written all over your face. You wanted to use me to make yourself into a bad girl, and now what? You’re stuck with me, Hart.”
“Ugh. You’re squeezing me. I can’t breathe.”
“You just tightened your hold. I’m going to die.”
“Say you love me and I’ll let you go.”
“I love you!” she groans, fake gasping for breath.
“And, this…” he says, producing a faded navy baseball hat. “Is my favorite hat. In case you wanted a hat. I don’t know, you don’t need it. The bruise doesn’t detract from—” He shrugs. “Anyway, I thought you might like it.”
I take it from him and stare at it like it’s a foreign object from Mars.
“I know it looks old, but I washed it recently. Well, last month—”
He reaches over to take it back and I yank it away from his grasp, cradling it against my chest. If he wants it, he’s going to have to pry it from my cold, dead fingers.
His head tips to the side and my eyes narrow teasingly.
His mouth tugs into a smile and I poke him in the chest.
