Ravens Innocence ~ Unedited Excerpt

I gasp as I am quickly rounding a corner and Grant steps out and grabs my arm and pulls me back around the side of the wall. “Oh my gosh Grant, you scared the hell out of me.”
“Sorry. I could tell you weren’t going to see me so I grabbed you before you got away. I didn’t mean to scare you.” He apologizes.
I’m breathing hard as I look up into his turquoise eyes. “I’m okay. It’s okay.” I mutter. “I was coming to find because I wanted to ask you if –“
“We could just get the hell out of here?” He finishes for me.
“You don’t mind? I mean, I know it’s a waste of tickets but we can’t even talk to each other in there.”
“Are you kidding me? That’s the last place I want to be. I hate this.” He motions his hands towards the crowds of people walking past us.
I give him a puzzled look.
“What’s wrong?” He asks me.
“I thought you loved hockey.” I say.
He returns the puzzled look and pauses for a moment. “I do. I love hockey.” Grant runs his hands through his hair and breathes a heavy sigh. “I just don’t like all these people. It’s too crowded and the noise has given me a headache.” He stands in front of me and puts his arms on my shoulders and gives me a playful smirk. “Besides, with all this commotion going on around us, I’m too distracted to do this.” And with that, he leans in and gently starts to kiss me. What a pleasant surprise this is. I feel myself starting to lean back a little far and almost fall backwards out of his grip when he quickly grabs my arms and smiles.
“Going somewhere?” He asks.
I swallow and feel my face heating up. I let out a nervous laugh. “Sorry, I was slipping.”
“I’m glad I was here to catch you.” His eyes are locked with mine.
“You’re the reason I almost fell.” I whisper, unable to break my eyes from his stare.
“And you’re the reason I’m so distracted.” He is so close to my face that I feel every breath he takes ripple down my neck. I am so weak in the knees right now. I want him to take me out of here, away from this place, to somewhere private, and let me distract him some more.
Grant slowly pulls away from me. I want to gravitate towards him but I don’t move. “Let’s get out of here.” He says.
“Where are we going?”
“I suddenly have an appetite. And it’s not for food.” He grabs my hand and starts to lead
me through the building towards the nearest exit.
