Joe opens the door before I even ring the bell. “Hey.” He looks me up and down.
“Hi.” I want to say more, but my body freezes. He’s still pale, has dark circles under his eyes, and his hair is a mess. “Were you expecting someone?” My eyes search his. Even though he’d look sexy no matter what, my heart squeezes to the point it hurts. Is this because of me? Did I do this to him on the stairs? I just saw him a few hours ago. How is it he looks like this so quickly? “You look...” I want to say terrible, but he doesn’t.
He leans his body against the door. Clearly he isn’t going anywhere. His jeans hang from his hips, giving a slight glimpse of his gray boxers. He’s not wearing a shirt, which reveals a smattering of short, trimmed hair over his bare chest. His nipples are erect and tiny bumps erupt from his naturally tanned skin.
My eyes wander further down to the way his hips cut into a perfect V like a perfectly sculpted action figure with all the clothing stripped away. I’d compare him to a Ken doll, but I draw in a breath when I think about Barbie. Joe’s too beautiful to be Ken, and I’m not nearly plastic enough to be her. Maybe this was a bad idea.
He clears his throat, and my eyes fixate on his hips as my tongue darts out. I exhale the air I’ve been holding in my lungs. It meets with the cold, dry December atmosphere, and condensation fills the space between our bodies like rain hitting the blacktop during a summer storm.
Ryan’s hips make this formation, too, but there’s something about Joe’s that has warmth radiating throughout my body and a dull ache growing between my legs. I gulp as I point my head toward his body. “You’re gonna catch a cold like that.”
He stares at me, his lips curving into a small smirk. “What do you want, Sam?”
“Are you alone?”
