‘You know I’m going to fight you in this development, don’t you?’
They walked in silence until they rounded the corner into her street and crossed the road in front of her building.
Charlotte stopped. ‘You lied to me,’ she accused, finally seeking out his eyes.
‘No I didn’t. Not technically. I failed to tell you something, but I didn’t lie.’ Was he teasing her?
‘Same thing,’ she snapped. ‘I don’t like liars. And I’m not very fond of people who are out to ruin my life,’ she added.
‘I’m not going to ruin your life,’ he said, not looking away, holding her with his dark brown gaze.
‘Well that means that you are because you’re a liar.’
He chuckled softly and gently. ‘Your argument is not sound.’
Charlotte withheld a grin. He was right. She sounded like a petulant child. She decided not to bite back.
‘I’m going in now,’ she said. ‘Thanks for seeing me home, I guess.’
He shrugged. She paused, and her gaze fell on his lips. When the corners of his mouth started to turn, so did she, on her heel, to stomp up the stairs to her apartment.
‘Goodnight, Charlotte,’ he called.
Throwing him one final glare, she closed her door on him and made a beeline for the shower to wash away the sinful desire threatening her good judgment.
