She parted her mouth, begging for a kiss she had no business wanting. "This."
His lips brushed hers. "This what?"
"No." She pushed him away and stood. "This is wrong. Can't you see it's wrong?"
"Being concerned for someone is never wrong, Tess."
"We both know this is about more than concern."
"Maybe so." He leaned his head back. "I'm very much attracted to you and that's been the case since I showed up at your apartment."
"This is crazy. Stop it." She stepped away from the table. "I'm not Dana so your games won't work."
"I don't want you to be Dana for god's sake." He stood, straightening his shirt. "I'm interested in getting to know you, and even though you're so sure this is wrong, you still want me to kiss you."
"You don't know what I want." She swung her purse at him. "And you don't know a damn thing about me."
He walked around the table until he reached her. "We need each other right now."
"No." She threw her hand up. "If you loved Dana then respect my wishes and just leave me alone."
"Okay, just answer this question for me and I'll leave you alone."
"What?" she snapped.
He squinted. "Do you want me to kiss you?"
His lips curled. "You're lying."
