'Does he know who I am?' He asked, slipping his arms around my waist as he nibbled on my ear softly as I poured water onto the coffee granules.

'I don't know. I don't think so.' I admitted, my voice small. 'I don't care what he knows, but I don't want your mum to find out.'

He turned me around to face him, his eyes searching mine. My breath quickened as he stared at me, his breathing matching mine.

'I don't care who knows. But if it matters to you, it matters to me.'

It held his scent so well, and tears pricked my eyes as I realised he must've felt used. That's not what happened here at all, but I could hardly have a relationship with him could I?
