“I couldn’t sleep,” Harrison said.

“Me either.”  Hannah shook her head, rising to her feet, tipping her head back so that she could see his eyes. “I’m sorry about earlier.  At the house, when I pushed.  I was just trying…”

He shook his head, covering her lips with his finger.  “No more talk.”  Then he bent his head, replacing the finger with his mouth, his lips hard against hers, taking possession.  Hannah’s stomach lurched as he threaded his fingers through hers, her desire rising as their kiss intensified. She arched against him, wanting more, the thrust of his tongue against hers a promise of things to come. 

He lifted his hands, carrying hers with them until her arms were over her head, his body pressing against hers, the bricks from her house cold against her back.  His mouth moved, his tongue finding the soft whorl of her ear, and she shivered in response, tipping her head back as he trailed kisses down her neck to the hollow at the base of her throat.

She knew she should stop him, but she didn’t want to pull away.  The events of the past few days had taken more of a toll than she’d realized.  Truth was, she just wanted to forget, to escape into the silent seduction of his kiss.
