When he opened his door to her, the look in his eyes and his smile filled her heart with love. She put her arms up around his neck and kissed him. “Dominic, here I am kissing you just as I warned and I’ve not even been in my studio yet.”
Dominic lifted her off her feet and swung her around into the hall. He kissed her. “I warned you, I’d let you. Do you want some tea? I’m procrastinating about an article and just made a pot.” He let her gently to the floor.
Cassie basked in the pleasure of his arms around her. She traced a fingertip down his cheek. “I will have some tea.” She slipped her arm around his waist as he turned releasing her from his hug.
Dominic put an arm around her shoulders. “Good.”
In the kitchen, she stayed close to him as he brought cups from the cupboard and poured tea. When he handed her one as she leaned on the kitchen counter beside him she gazed at him lovingly. “I had an email from a city gallery this morning offering me an exhibition spot. It’s soon, in fact in two weeks’ time. It’s a great opportunity.”
“Wow, congratulations. If there’s any help I can give you, logistically … anything … you must be thrilled. I am for you.” His eyes broadcast admiration.
Cassie nodded. “Thank you. I am elated, but now, as I’m telling you about it I’m realizing how busy I’ll be. I might not get to see much of you for a time.”
