“Thank you for the roses,” I finally say. “That was so thoughtful of you and they truly are beautiful.”
“You’re most welcome. And as beautiful as they may be, they don’t even come close to comparison to you.”
Oh wow, did he just say that? I feel my face ignite yet again. I divert my attention to the floor. I am flattered and embarrassed by his genuine charm. “Thank You.”
“Are you ready to go?” He reaches out and brushes my arm with his hand.
“I am. Just let me grab my coat. Where are we going by the way?” I assume I’m dressed appropriately for whatever he has planned.
A huge grin spreads across Asher’s face. “Do you like to ice skate?”
Omg, seriously? I haven’t been ice skating in years. I gulp as my eyes damn near pop out of my head. “I love it! I haven’t done it in years, but I think it sounds like a lot of fun.” I let out a nervous laugh. “I hope I don’t break anything!”
“You won’t. I’ll be there to catch you if you fall.” His face softens and I see the sincerity in his eyes reflecting what he just said.
