I studied the crook of his arm, and the idea of snuggling up against him was extremely tempting. But I didn't think he had that in mind. So instead, I leaned back on the couch, careful not to touch him. His hand didn't come around me and pull me closer. It remained on the back of the couch and I hated that I was disappointed.

I glanced up at him through my lashes and his attention was completely focused on the movie. He had no idea he was driving me crazy.
