Jareth glanced at her briefly and then back to his blade. “There are many unexplained forces in the world, little one.” He paused to reflect for a moment. “Thank you once more for going slowly so I could begin to understand how to ride in a car.”
“And you didn’t even turn green this time. Are you going to look at that all day? We should check the e-mails.” She moved over and sat at her computer.
He winked at her. “I find my sanity more assuredly safe if I keep my stare to my weapon and not upon your body.”
“Okay then.” She sighed. “Do you think it will happen again?”
He hissed out a frustrated breath. “One can only hope.”
