    “Just talking pleasantries with a gorgeous woman, that’s all.”

    “Yeah, well, why don’t you leave my fiancée alone and we’ll just forget that you were bothering her?”

    Summary

    “I’ve missed you, you know?”

    And how is that fair?

    “I’ve missed you too,” she says quietly, lips turning up at the side when Will’s eyes snap to hers, soft and hopeful. “A lot.”

    And then he’s ushering her into a cab, hand firm on her waist as he says something about catching a cold, despite the unseasonably warm night, and she’s left to spend the rest of the night wondering if she imagined the affection on his face, the tenderness of his touch.
