He had not even thought about it. “You don’t want me here, do you?”Lind sighed. He got up and walked around the table, kneeling down next to her chair. He took her hands in his and squeezed them. “I want you here,” he said, looking so deep into her eyes that for a moment Eve thought she might drown in his stare. “You can’t even begin to imagine how much I want you here.” He took a moment, letting the words he had just spoken reach her and sink in. “But you can’t run from this, Eve. You need to go back and break things off with that asshole, get some closure.”Eve hesitated. He was right, of course. She knew he was right, and yet… “I don’t know if I can.”“Of course you can.”She shook her head. “You don’t get it.”“Then make me get it,” he said. “Make me understand.”She took a deep breath. “I’m scared,” she admitted. “I know it’s ridiculous to be afraid of one man after all that I’ve just been through, but I am. What if things get out of hand?”“I’ll be there to watch your back.”Eve stared at him. He sounded and looked like he meant it. “I can’t ask that of you.”“You’re not asking,” Lind said. “I’m offering.”“What will my father say?”“He’ll say you’ve done good getting rid of an asshole who beat you,” Lind interrupted. “Doesn’t your father love you?”Eve bit her lip. “He does,” she admitted.“Then, I’m sure he’ll be happy to know that you’re safe,” Lind said. He squeezed her hands for emphasis. “You know you have to do this, Eve.”Eve took a deep, shaky breath. She nodded, finally convinced. “I know. You’re right. I’ll do it.”Lind smiled brightly at her. “Good,” he said.And then he leaned in.
