She quickly slipped her hand from beneath his, hoping he couldn’t tell how bewildered her unexpected, fervent response had left her. Or how close she’d come to actually shivering just now! “Allow me,” Sean said, gallantly opening the office door for her and stepping back with a bow. Rachel took a deep breath and held it. She sidled through the open door without looking up or glancing back at Sean. Principal Vanbruger wasn’t the main reason for her nervousness anymore. Sean Bates was. Not only were her original butterflies still having a riotous party in her stomach, but the moment Sean had accidentally touched her hand, they’d invited all their friends—and a few hundred moths, to boot!

Rachel studied his face and frowned, trying to place him. ” Watching the movement of her eyes, he must have guessed that she was casting around for something with which to write; he stooped and came up with a blue crayon and a piece of the drawing paper she’d dropped. “I’m Sean Bates.

Guess I was so surprised, I didn’t move quite fast enough. ” Pulling a face, she lamented the supplies scattered at their feet, then gathered the hem of her skirt at her knees, holding it bunched in one hand so she could crouch down safely. “My poor crayons. They were brand new. ” Sean squatted to help her gather up the spill. “Hey, these are those big fat crayons. ” “Makes sense. ” “Yes, I’m a teacher. ” “No special reason. ” Rachel knew better than to acknowledge the backhanded compliment and open their conversation to more of his personal opinions.
