"Why are you so afraid of me?" he whispered, caressing my cheek. I pushed his hands away and moved back, annoyed with his actions and terrified of how he made feel.
"I'm not afraid of you," I replied haughtily.
He quirked an amused brow, "Oh really?"
"Yes," I snapped. "I could never be afraid of someone like you."
He chuckled and stepped forward, forcing me to take a step back. I hated being close to him. I didn't like the things he made me feel and how easily I lost train of thought. I didn't want to be any more closer to him than I needed to be.
"Alright then," he smiled and boy, if it didn't make my stomach flutter with butterflies. "Prove it."
I gave him a dry look. For someone who held such a high status in society, he had the mind of a two year old. He was so childish, it was honestly infuriating.
"And how do you suppose I do that?" I humored him. He gave a secretive smile and took another step forward. He was but a breath away now, our noses just barely brushing. His eyes thundered before me, dangerous but inviting. He had the ability to destroy me completely and I found myself not minding the idea one bit. In fact, I found myself rather enjoying the notion.
