Noah’s arms grew so tight it was a struggle to breathe.

“Noah,” I wheezed, hoping he’d loosen his hold. He didn’t. His head came up, those honey eyes full of tension as he stared at me.

“Shit. I’m sorry, Harlow. I’m so sorry. I wasn’t thinking.”

“Noah, please…” I wheezed again. “I can’t breathe.”

“Fuck,” he ground out, his iron-like hold loosening enough that I was able to suck in some much needed oxygen. “I’m sorry.”

“Stop apologizing,” I replied. Normally his admission would have been like a bucket full of ice water being dumped over our heads, extinguishing any remaining smoldering embers of our heated encounter. But his anguished expression tugged at something in my chest. The need to comfort him overpowered the panic that should have been roiling around in my gut. “It’s all right, I’m covered. I have an IUD.”

“Okay,” he sighed, his large frame sagging in relief as he pushed me farther into the wall.

“You can let me down now.”

His arms twitched, squeezing me slightly before he pulled away just enough for his softening erection to slip out. I felt an immediate sense of loss, but tried to push it to the back of my mind as I unwrapped my legs from his waist. But my feet never hit the ground.

“Noah, you can let go now,” I pressed.

With a simple no, he kept a firm lock around my body and walked toward the couch. Holding me against him as he sat, then laid back and rested me so I was laying half on top of him, my other half resting against the back of the couch.

My heart rate kicked up at the intimacy of our position. “What are you doing?”

“Just…” his voice trailed off as his chest rose with a deep sigh against my cheek. “Just let me hold you for a little while longer. Please.”

I couldn’t argue. If I was being honest with myself, I didn’t want to argue. I had no idea what was happening between us, what we’d just done meant. But the thing that was at the forefront of my mind was how comforting it felt to be in his arms. I felt more secure just then than I had in years. So I was giving myself a little more time, snuggling into the warmth of his chest before the real world had a chance to seep back in on us.

“What’s going on in that head of yours?” he asked in a low, gravelly voice after several minutes of content silence.

“Nothing,” I responded immediately.

I felt his chest vibrate with laughter and my arm reflexively tightened around his middle. Undertones of humor echoed through his voice as he said, “God, you’re still a terrible liar.”

“You sound just like Chloe,” I grumbled into his skin as I sense of contentment settled over me like a comfortable blanket.

Noah remained silent for a few seconds, and I thought the subject had dropped. I was wrong. “You might have started a new life with new friends, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t know you better than anyone else… at least back then.
