Extract

She went about preparing the local anaesthetic and the tools needed to remove the tooth. While she did this, Jared studied her.

Even though she was extremely beautiful, she appeared to be a little flippant, and he concluded she probably wasn’t what he was looking for. Even as he was telling himself this, he couldn’t help but notice how intriguing she was. The way her curls bounced as she moved, the long stride in her lean legs and the rosy colour high in her cheeks sent shockwaves of desire through his body.

“Okay, this might sting a little Max.”

When she gave him the injection, Max hardly flinched.

“We’ll just give that a minute to work.” Silence followed again so she jumped back in after a pause. “So, Jared, what do you do when you’re not fighting fires?”

“Not much really, spending time with my family. I like to cook too.” Her eyes met his for the first time since entering the room. He kept his face impassive as she furrowed her brow briefly as though confused. Then colour rushed to her face again. His heart threatened to leap out of his chest.

“I like a man who can cook,” she said. “I even manage to burn water.”

“I find it therapeutic.”

“That is how I feel about shopping.”

“I’m sure you do,” he said to her caustically. Shallow and beautiful: what a surprise.

“Let’s pull this tooth shall we, you seem eager to get on with your day,” she said frostily. Her frown crinkled.

Max’s tooth was removed, but he appeared not to notice it. This was followed by a lick to her face as she gave him cuddles for being brave. Jared’s heart went in his throat and the burn of desire surged through again. I have to get out of here before I do something I regret.

“Well done, Max. All finished.”

Max danced around friskily once she’d placed him back on the floor.

“He seems his normal self again, Charlotte, thank you.” His mind yelled get out, but his limbs remained steadfast.

“You’re welcome.”

Her confident stride took her towards reception and he decided it was in total contradiction to the blush in her cheeks. Just as he followed her out the front, Dr Shaw came in the door.

“Hey, Jared, how are you?” Dr Shaw said. “Is Max okay?’

“He is now, Dr Shaw, Charlotte fixed him.”

“Thank you, Charlotte.” Dr Shaw smiled at her. “No charge for Jared on Max’s visits.”

“Oh, okay, no problem, all done then. I’ll just go and clear up out the back. Nice to meet you both,” she said, crouching down to have another cuddle with Max. “You come and visit me again soon, handsome.”

For the third time he was struck down with jealousy. Jared’s gaze followed her discreetly as she stood up and disappeared out the back. He chatted with Dr Shaw for a few minutes, hoping to catch another glimpse of her. When she didn’t resurface, he decided to leave. As he headed to Nathan’s, he found he couldn’t shake her from his mind. It was instant intoxication. Snap out of it.

A.O. Chika: I loved the storyline. The characters, the settings, and the overall plot was great. I love how it started sweet in the beginning and then the angst set in.
