“Yeah, I got stupidly teary too, fucking hormones,” she grumbles. “What’s your excuse?”

Stupid boy. He spent part of the day being a grump and being rough and broody. Then he does something like this, and I am floored.

I saw him scribble on one of the cups with the marker the lady at the coffee shop gave him. I thought he was marking which was the hot chocolate. I didn’t give it two thoughts.

“I need a pen.” I say as Arabella starts to get up.

“What do you think I’m getting up for?” she says, laughing as she goes to one of the kitchen drawers that probably hasn’t been opened since we were kids and pulls out an ancient looking marker.

“How old is that thing?”

“Who cares? It’s green, like his eyes. Think of it as my input into your cheesy reply.”

I take his cup and write YES, underlining it just to make sure he gets the message and then I jump up from my seat. Standing there stupidly, pondering what to do.

“Well, take it to him then!” Arabella says as she tugs me by the arm towards my father’s office. When we get to the door she says, “Knock!”

“Knock?” Shit, my heart might actually burst from my chest any moment now.

When I don’t move, she knocks loudly. Three times. And then she legs it.

Ugh. I’m frozen on the spot not knowing what to do when Casper opens the door and I can tell that the quiet coming from inside the office is forced. Like they don’t want anyone hearing what they’re discussing.

“Princess?” he asks, his eyes wide because I’m still rendered speechless. Chuckling, he hollers, “Numbers boy!”

Numbers boy?

Leo opens the door wide and I get a glimpse inside. My father’s desk is still in the middle of the room, Christopher and Freddie are sitting around it with Dad and Casper joins them. The mahogany wall on the left is covered in papers with a whiteboard beside it with so many numbers my eyes cross.

“Hey.” Leo closes the door behind him and looks at me, surprised. “You okay?”

“Yes. I think. Yes.”

“You think yes?” He comes closer.

Before he thinks I’m any more of an idiot I hold up his coffee with the big, fat YES facing him. “Yes!”

A soft smile filters through his features as he takes the cup from me and leans down, he tips my chin up with his free hand and ghosts my lips with his.

He breathes in so deeply that I’m sure he’s going to inhale me into his lungs, and then he licks across the seam of my lips once. Twice. And again, until I’m panting, and my brain goes to mush, my legs to jelly.

The kiss he presses onto them is soft and full of reverence. It’s unlike any kiss he’s given me so far. So sweet.

“I’m taking you out tonight.” He says as he pulls away with a smile. “I’ll come find you when we’re done here.”

Biting his lip, he brushes my hair back before kissing my forehead.
