She paused in the doorway, looking over her shoulder at him. Her eyes swept up to meet his, then lowered, triggering the small smile that raised the corner of her mouth. His heart raced like he had run a marathon in the few steps they had taken down the hall. His palm still felt the cool softness of her skin where her hand had been curved into his seconds before. The world shrank down to the size of a pinhole, giving him only a view of her before him. The scent of her perfume lingering where she had been filled his nostrils, and he struggled to stand upright.
How long had he wanted to be right here, about to slip into the bedroom beyond, to take her into his arms and show her how he felt about her? He suddenly couldn’t recall whether it had been mere moments or a month ago that they had met. It shouldn’t matter, he knew, and he tried to breathe slowly, but found himself unable to manage it. Emerald flashed as her eyes raised again to his. She was emeralds and sapphires and diamonds tonight, and more precious than all of those things.
“Ready?” she asked softly.
