Michelle moved her arms and stood up straighter. “Yes, and I definitely get why you chose her. She’s amazing.” She gave me the biggest, fakest smile.
The forced nature of it didn’t go unnoticed by Levi. “Good. As nice as it is to see you, I’m going to be taking Allie now. We’ve got some plans of our own.”
I groaned internally. I tried to help and, of course, he had to take advantage of it. “Before we go, let me make sure my friends don’t mind.”
“We don’t mind at all,” Anne said immediately. “Go have fun.” She winked at me.
“If you want to go, we understand.” Tiffany was trying to figure out what I wanted her to say.
“Yeah, go ahead.” Hailey grinned. She was in so much trouble.
“Bye, Michelle. Great meeting you.” I let Levi lead me to the front door.
“You guys staying?” Levi asked his friends.
“Yeah.” Jared was eyeing Tiffany.
“Okay, but remember the rules,” I warned him. Tiffany was too sweet of a girl to have to deal with Jared.
He glared at me. “Yes, how could I forget?”
Levi led us off the porch and away from the house.
“You know why I did it.” I looked up at the perfectly crescent moon.
He traced a line down my arm.
“Of course. Michelle would have told your dad if she thought something was up. Why would it mean anything else?”
“A chaste kiss could have accomplished the same thing. That wasn’t chaste—your tongue was in my mouth, Al.”
“Are you complaining?”
“Hell no. I happen to like your tongue… and the rest of you.” His eyes let me know exactly what he was implying.
