I link my fingers behind Samâs neck. âHe cares about you, Sam.â
âIâm tryinâ to move forward, get somewhere, be somebody. I just feel like heâs holding me back.â
I look down at our feet and back up to meet his frown. âYou seem to be moving ahead just fine to me.â
âIâm no ballroom dancer.â
I press my lips against his. I delight in a long-lasting kiss until Sam moans in the back of his throat. Reluctantly, I pull back. âThen lucky for the both of us, because I donât want a dancer. I want you.â
The song finishes, but we continue to sway, locked tight in each otherâs arms. The young girl nods to Shaun and walks offstage as a lady with wild ginger hair in a ruffled denim dress and cowgirl boots takes her place. The woman, who looks to be in her forties, adjusts the microphone to her height, and then plucks the strings of a mandolin. Her voice crackles as she sings about writing a song, and her tears.
Samâs arms stiffen around me. âOf all the frickinâ songs, she picks this one by Willie Nelson?â
The lady continues on about sad songs and waltzes. Itâs kind of depressing. Ironic, really. I shift my arms around Samâs waist.
âI hate country music,â he growls in my ear.
âThe songâs not that bad,â I lie.
Samâs mouth moves to my ear. The heat of his breath sends a flood of warmth to my lower belly. âI just wanted this one moment. Sheâs killinâ me.â
I tighten my hold around him. âForget about her.â
Sam grinds his teeth. âHow can I? Itâs all I can hear.â
âThen listen to me instead.â I press one hand to the centre of his chest. âWe made it, Sam. We made it here to this very spot.â
A lazy smile curls at his mouth. âNowâs not the time to make me weak at the knees, Janie.â
