I leaned in close to her and whispered, “If you play along with what I’m about to do right now, then I promise I won’t miss another study session. I’ll listen, and I won’t give you any shit. I’ll even get down on my knees and apologize later.” Geez I was desperate. What the hell was I saying?
Her eyebrows squinted together and I could tell she was toying with the idea, and her friend Lola was lingering on every word. I’d forgotten she was even there.
“Cross my heart.” I stuck out my lip.
“Are you about to embarrass me in front of all these people?” She asked, a scared look on her face.
“No,” I promised.
She looked like a deer caught in headlights, but she agreed, surprising the hell out of me. “Fine.”
I looked around to see if anyone else was paying attention. The only one that I cared to be seen by was Tyler.
Reaching my arm around her tiny waist, I pulled her tightly against me in one swift motion. She sucked in a deep breath, and I almost regretted what I was doing.
