Hailey shook her head. "Kevin, I'm sorry about earlier. You know what happened between David and me, I guess. You caught me in a weak moment. I should not have done that. Can we just please forget it ever happened?"
"Can you forget it? I have another idea." He closed the distance between them until his knees touched the front bumper. He rested his hands on the hood beside her hips, his lips inches from hers.
She leaned back, resting her body on both hands. "Kevin "
He nodded, letting his eyes roam over her features. "I don't hear no."
The rain fell harder than it had earlier, but she seemed not to notice it at all as she stared at him. He put his hands over hers and moved even closer.
"Kevin," she said, her breath on his face. "Really, I "
"That's not no either, Hailey." He moved even closer and put his hand on her neck, letting his thumb stroke her cheek.
She glanced down at her handbag then back into his eyes. "You've ruined your suit. That's about the nicest thing anybody has ever done for me."
"That kiss was quite a thank you," he said, forcing himself to concentrate on completing his plan. But this moment was surreal; if he didn't know better, he'd let himself fall for this woman. She was dangerous.
"I did want to thank you," she said.
"Thank me again."
