The holiday season is finally over and I am finally aware of what day it is!!! Not that I'm not usually, but it gets confusing with all those holidays. Right?? Right.
So here is a brand new Tuesday Teaser from The Rush!!!!
I turned for the door and had just decided that I was done wallowing and needed to get over myself when it was suddenly thrust open and Ryder came strutting inside. My hand flew to my neck instinctively and I took a few beats to steady my breathing. My pulse thumped wildly against my fingers and I tightened my grip against my throat. Ryder and I assessed each other from a few feet apart, his eyes were cool and calculating, mine were wide and frightened.
“You scared the hell out of me!” I finally yelled at him.
A small smile tugged at the corner of his lips, and his eyes softened into careful amusement. “Sorry,” he finally relented.
“Kenna was worried about you. She asked me to check on you.”
“And that meant storming the girls’ bathroom?” I snapped.
“I was waiting outside, but you were taking so long I started to wonder if Kenna had a right to be concerned,” he explained.
His gray eyes were heated in the low lights of the bathroom but full of excited adrenaline from being on stage. The ends of his hair were damp from being under the hot lights and curled around his neck and over his ears, slick with sweat. His worn t-shirt clung to his body, sticking to him from the performance. He was full of feral energy; his presence was completely intrusive and demanding. His energy was infecting the room, reaching every molecule and atom around me, making the air bounce off the walls in excited frenzy.
He was overwhelming.
And for once in my life I was the one get pulled in.
