She didn’t know him. He could tell.
A total stranger, and that’s what he’d seem like to her, he knew. How could he tell her he’d been dreaming of her for always? Waiting. Searching. Absently, without realizing it, he stroked his thumb across her arm, and it rubbed across the bare skin just below the sleeve of her shirt.

Her pupils flared. She sucked in a breath. “You…”
Her eyes widened.

“You’ll come away with me, won’t you…”
