Redder. It catches the mist in the air, almost as if it creeps up from underneath. Everything is new,‖ he said softly. ‖ Annabel‘s breath caught. He sounded so wistful. It made her want to remain right where she was, on the blanket beside him, until the sun started to rise on the eastern horizon. He made her want to see the heath in morning light. He made her want to see him in the morning light. ―I should like to take a bath in it,‖ he murmured. ‖ It should have been shocking, but Annabel sensed that he wasn‘t talking to her.
Wistful. He couldn‘t recall the last time he‘d felt anything approaching wistful. It made him want this kiss—want her —with the strangest intensity. He didn‘t feel warm. He didn‘t feel hot. But something inside of him—maybe his conscience, maybe his soul—was burning. He didn‘t know her name, didn‘t know anything about her except that she dreamed of Rome and smelled like violets. And that she tasted like vanilla cream. This, he now knew. This, he thought as his tongue brushed against the soft inside of her upper lip, he would never forget.
There was too much light coming from the party to find clarity in the night sky, but the stars were still twinkling here and there. They had to fight through the pollution, Annabel thought, in order to shine. It was a pollution of light, of brightness. Somehow that just seemed wrong. ―Five minutes,‖ she said aloud. In five minutes she would return to the party. In five minutes she would have regained her equilibrium. In five minutes she would be able to affix her smile back to her face and curtsy to the man who had just mauled her.
