The road to love (editing!!)
Have you ever been stuck in traffic, minding your own business, when you look over and see your ultimate, dream car being driven by a dream guy? This is what happens to Jessica Jones on the way to work... Suddenly dream guy, Dean Parker, seems to be everywhere... in traffic, at her work, even at the club she visits with a friend... but when she starts seeing him with another girl in his car a few mornings, her hopes are shattered and she believes him to be taken. Yet... he smiles at her in traffic, flirts with her at her office and slow dances with her in the club. How can he have someone in his life and yet steal kisses (and more) from her the way he does? And why is her mother acting so wierd at the mention of Dean's family name? Jessica is hot and bothered by Dean and his effect on her. Add to that an ex who's determined to win Jessica back for his own purposes... and you get one confused redhead!
“No way!” I turn my head to him in surprise, realizing too late how close that action would bring us. I freeze. My mouth goes dry and I lick my lips, trying to get some moisture back there. Dean’s eyes drop to my mouth and I see his eyes darken slightly, before he looks back up to meet my eyes again. I try to swallow, to get my voice moving again, while my heart betrays me by beating erratically. “Um,” I start, thinking of a way to get out of this tension filled situation. “I think I’m ok for that faster dance now.”
Dean gets up and takes my hand without saying a word, leading me back onto the dance floor. Someone bumps into Dean, effectively pushing him much closer to me. I look up into his eyes as he takes my arms and drape them around his neck, before placing his hands on my hips. “Just move to the music,” he tells me as he starts moving against me.
