As he approached her, she felt a tingle travel throughout her body.
He took her hands in his. "Over the past couple of months, there was a void in my life. Then, one night, not that long ago, I met a woman. She was intelligent, caring and compassionate and couldn't care less who I was. There was just something about this woman that I couldn't get out of my mind. I've dated a lot of women in my time. Never did I experience the feelings I felt when I was with her. You see, love…" He wiped her eyes, lifting her chin up till their eyes met. "That woman is you. I love you."
"There's no such thing as love at first sight."
"Oh yes, there is." He looked at her with a twinkle in his eyes, which made her knees wobble. "Are you going to deny it?"
How could she when he was right? Her life had been empty for years. She had been so caught up in her own self-pity she couldn't write or go on a date without comparing. Drake had changed that, brought her back on course. She slipped her hand out of his and ran her fingers softly down his cheek.
