“Apartment hunting.” She yawned. “I’ve got an appointment at nine to meet a landlord.”
“How about you cancel it? Sleep in.”
“I sort of need a roof over my head.”
“Then take mine.” The words hurled past my lips.
“Huh?” She pushed herself up to a seat.
I gulped. Christ, what was I doing? “I’ve got a big house with three extra rooms. You could stay there for a while. Save some money. We could get to know each other.”
Cass blinked as her eyebrows knitted together.
“Yeah, I can’t believe I just said that either.” This woman was scrambling my brain.
“Want to take it back?”
“No,” I said without hesitation. “I mean it. If you want to save up, not live alone, you’re welcome at my place. You can check it out first if you want. Tomorrow.”
She continued to stare at me, her head tilting to the side as she tried to figure me out. When she did, I hoped she’d share the wealth.
I held my breath, not sure if I wanted her to say yes or no. Yes. No.
Yes. She was going to say no. I could feel it.
“Okay,” she whispered.
“Change your mind already?”
“No. Just . . . you never say what I think you’re going to say.”
She smiled. “You’ll get used to it.”
