Ok, continuing on from the last point:
"There's a twig in your hair," Aidan said softly, removing it with a gentle tug.
"How did that get there?" My voice came from somewhere far off and my chest was tightening under the invisible grip of the panic.
Aidan stepped closer and I held my breath and swallowed. "I can't imagine, Charlie, unless you sleepwalk." I shook my head. "Well, I know there's a very lush tree in your backyard that hangs over mine. It has these leaves, and they're kind of rare in this part of the country." I blanched. Tracing the leaf down my jaw and neck, I could feel his warm breath against my cheek as he said softly, "So tell me again, Charlie: Have you been climbing trees?"
:) I really enjoy doing these! Thanks for reading, and see you next week.
