“Penny for your thoughts.” Hayden’s words interrupted both her thoughts and the still night air.
Chelsea hesitated. She couldn’t exactly tell him that she’d been mentally comparing him to another man, even if he came out on the favorable end of said comparison. “I’m thinking about what a great night it’s been,” she said, “and that I don’t really want it to end.”
“That makes two of us,” Hayden agreed as they came to a stop in front of her building.
It doesn’t have to, a voice inside her head told her. She could invite him in. The idea certainly had its appeal, and Chelsea didn’t tend to be shy about such matters. Then again, Hayden was unlike any other man she’d dated. He was younger, for one thing, and more introspective. And it was impossible to forget the adorably flustered look on his face back at the restaurant when she’d mentioned going to his place. No, it wasn’t the right time.
“Maybe we can do it again sometime?” Hayden suggested. His voice carried a hint of hopefulness as well as an indication that he viewed this as the end of their date.
“I’d like that,” Chelsea said softly, relieved she hadn’t ruined things by being too forward.
“Good. I’ll see you tomorrow. Night, Chelsea.” Hayden lowered his head and brushed his lips across hers. It was a kiss very much like the evening itself. Nice, sweet, with the hint of more to come.
Chelsea decided she could live with that. “Goodnight, Hayden.”
