”He is. He’s just so busy that it’s hard to really spend any time with him.” When Rose was a child Mikael would make sure that the kids didn’t get to bored at those kind of events or at least try to. Rose thought that Adrian had made a wonderful buffer and the people whose opinions mattered more to her than her parents had liked him or that was her impression, anyway.
She gave a small smile. ”Hopefully. At least if this one didn’t scare you away.” There was a ring of truth in that joke because Rose had feared taken him here would do just that; scare him off. Feeling a tingle as he whispered into her ear; she just stayed in his arms for those brief moments.
She didn’t know what to say to the compliment; in her mind, the way she was had always been more because of her brother than herself. As for her parents, Rose might agree with the word insanity but she also knew there were worse parents out there. Kind of always cross in the middle of hating the way they acted and feeling loyal to them because they were her parents.
She joined him on the bed, found a romantic comedy that she had wanted to see and layed in his arms. A few other things might have happened that night other than snuggling but it didn’t go much beyond kissing and necking. Rose figured she would have to eventually let him know she was still a virgin but wasn’t even sure he would be that surprised by it and it was a topic for another time. Second movie in, she would fall asleep in his arms and not awake till morning.
