Her eyes grew even wider. He could just tell from the startled roundness of her eyes she was remembering the scene at the buffet. Clearly, he’d neglected to place the forgetfulness spell on her too. She stared at her healed wrist. “Oh my God…” And then she stared at him. “How…?”
By Father Zeus, this was one of those moments he really wished he could lie. Just one, teeny white lie was all he asked.
He clenched his jaw and grasped at the best possible explanation. “Um. I’m really good at first aid. Like, the best.”He was the god of healing, after all. He’d better be good at fucking first aid!
She sat up and touched her wrist. “First aid wouldn’t have helped. It wasn’t just a little cut, Apollo. My vein was severed. I could have died.”
He bit his lip. “You were very groggy. You might have trouble remembering everything.” No lie there. “I took care of it. You’re fine.”
Patience gaped, obviously unconvinced. And then her gaze traveled down his neck and chest, stopping in the vicinity of his crotch.
As if on cue, his cock throbbed. Visibly.
She looked away quickly. Blinking furiously, she scrambled to get off the bed. “I should go.” However, she was hit by an obvious head rush that made her look even paler. “Oh dear.”
She swayed, and he gathered her against his chest, running his hand over her hair to soothe her. “Don’t move. You’re light-headed. You’re safe here. Just relax for a minute.”
She leaned against him but was stiff in his arms, apparently doing her best impression of a two-by-four.
He moved his hand under the veil of her hair, gods help him, and massaged the back of her neck until she became more pliable in his hands. He chuckled. “You have trouble relaxing, don’t you?”
She closed her eyes as he hit a pressure point in her neck, and she sighed. “I’ve never been much of a relaxer.”
“No kidding?” he teased.
Patience opened her eyes and looked at him. Her brows were still knit together in a frown, but the corners of her pink lips turned up. “Yeah. I failed R&R in school. I was too busy studying for my anal retention classes.”
He burst into laughter. Then she giggled.
And for some reason, to hear their two laughs echoing off the same walls together made him feel a bliss that was immeasurable.
