Chapter Twelve

Briggs

I pulled the front door open, wanting the incessant banging to stop. The pounding woke me up from a very deep, very comfortable sleep. In fact, I’d had my arm wrapped tightly around Talia and hadn’t been too happy to let her go, but I knew who was at the door as soon as I’d heard the loud knocking.

“Hey, Porter,” I said, my voice groggy. I opened the door wide and stepped back, giving him the room he needed to come in.

“Briggs,” he said with a knowing grin. “Did I wake you?”

“Something like that.”

“Sorry, man,” he apologized, but didn’t sound sorry at all. “Gotta get started early.”

“I know. It’s cool.” And it was. Hell, I was paying Porter to do a job and I wanted it done. I just wanted to lie with Talia in my arms a little more than I wanted the construction on my kitchen to start. “You need me for anything today?”

“Nah, man. You’ve helped enough. I got some men showing up here any minute.”

Suddenly, the idea of my house being full of men and Talia upstairs without any clothes on bothered me. “We’re probably gonna head out then. Stay out of your hair.”

“We?” he asked, his smile stretching even wider. “You got someone up there? Anyone I know?”

“Fuck off,” I said with a laugh as I headed back up the stairs. I walked into the bedroom and met Talia’s eyes. She was awake, lying naked in my bed, and the sight nearly made me turn around and tell Porter to come back the next day. Or perhaps the next week. We only had a limited amount of time together, and right now it seemed like a great idea to spend it in bed.

“How’d you sleep?” I asked as I slid into bed next to her.

She had the covers pulled all the way up to her chin. She looked comfortable and relaxed.

“Great.” Her voice was raspy and adorable. Her red hair was fanned out behind her, messy and sexy all at the same time. “Too good, actually. I kind of never want to leave your bed.” She smiled as she said the words, but then she closed her eyes and seemed to burrow even deeper into the covers.

“As much as I’d love to keep you captive, in a few minutes my house is going to be full of men and it’s going to get loud. Want to go get some breakfast?”

She peeped one eye open at me and seemed to contemplate my question. “I’m pretty sure any establishment that sells food has a No Shirt, No Service policy.”

I laughed. “Well, I wasn’t planning on letting you go naked.”

Her eye closed again and she mumbled into my pillow. “I only have my swimsuit, Briggs. I might as well just go home. You probably have a lot of stuff to do today.”

She was right. She should probably just go home. That would probably be best for both of us, but that wasn’t what I wanted. I wanted to spend time with her.
