I see a flash of dirty blond hair in my peripheral vision and turn to see Porter’s beaming whiter-than-white smile shining down on me. “Har, you’ve just made my already fantastic day even better.”
“Sweet talker,” I say jokingly, grinning up at him. “I’m the last minute ring-in by the man who must be obeyed.” Shrugging, I look back down at my paperwork and feel the couch I’m sitting on shift as Porter takes a seat beside me. “Can you believe this? Last flight before the holidays and we have the biggest douche man-whore on the West Coast as our passenger.”
“And here was I thinking that’s what you thought about me,” he whispers in my ear, so close I can feel his warm breath fan across my skin, leaving ripples of goose bumps in its wake.
I gasp before turning to face the former -- okay maybe still current -- object of my desire. My eyes go wide at the abrupt change in his behavior toward me. Porter has always been a joker, but he’s never been as overt as he’s being right now. “What? You? No ... Say what now?”
He starts laughing, standing up and giving my shoulder a gentle squeeze. “Just playing around, Harlow.” I see his face suddenly look serious, his brows narrowing as if he’s consumed with thought. “I hope you don’t believe everything you hear, though. Just saying.”
