Her lips thinned. “Let’s hope you’re feeling more civilized after throwing your tantrum in the hallway. At least I know I’m not the only one being subjected to your temperamental mood swings.” Her voice carried over to me like the scent of Eve’s apple tempting Adam. There was hurt buried in the bitterness, and I yearned to soothe the pain I’d caused. I hated that I couldn’t even give her an explanation.
“It’s complicated,” I murmured sullenly.
She snorted on a choked laugh, drawing my narrowed gaze. “That’s what they all say. You don’t have to explain anything; I got the picture loud and clear.”
It was that spark in her—the innate fight that stiffened her spine—that drove me wild. She stood up for herself and those around her, calling a spade a spade without apology. Her ferocity called to an elemental part of me that wanted to coerce the lioness to show me her soft underside. To convince her to walk beside me rather than battle against me.
It was madness. A sickness in my bloodstream that I was powerless against.
I clamped my hand on the corner of her desk and started to pull her in close to me, but she slammed her feet down on the floor and glowered at me, keeping herself rooted to the spot. My lips peeled back to reveal a wicked grin before I slid my own desk next to hers. Her eyes widened a fraction as she craned her neck to maintain eye contact.
I slowly leaned in close, my lips settling close to her ear. “No matter what you think you know; I can promise that you don’t.” A whispered confession, or the closest I could get to one.
When I pulled away, confusion lined her pretty face. I slid over her iPad and began to read the class exercise, determined to ignore just how reckless I was near Val. It wasn’t the first time in my life I’d struggled with impulse control, but I’d thought I’d remedied that little problem. Where Val was concerned, I was just as self-destructive as I’d been as a kid.
