From the corner of my eye, I watch his hands move on the console and picture them playing over my skin.

He leans in, too close, to murmur an observation, and I catch his warm eyes watching me shiver.

 

Evenings, we curl up on the couch. I wrap my fingers around my coffee cup to stop myself reaching for him. My hand on his chest, his on my shoulder, is the only contact we’re allowed.

 

I watch the shape of his lips as he smiles and pretend I don’t want to kiss them.

 

I’m fooling nobody, least of all myself.
