Here's a little thrill from Maggie Maguire in Maguire's Corner.
Jack’s gaze took in the whole island with all the different dishes of food. “How many people are you having for dinner tonight?”
Maggie had to laugh, “Just me.”
Jack laughed with her. “Bored, huh?”
“A little. There’s plenty here, you should eat before you go back to work.”
The same manners that had easily invited him to dinner kept her from taking the invitation back. What was she thinking asking the Chief to stay for dinner? Jack appeared more skeptical than surprised.
“If you’re sure it wouldn’t be any trouble?”
“I’m sure. I mean you did save the biscuits.”
Maggie headed for the cabinet that held her plates. Grabbing two, she turned to find Jack directly in
her path. He was very close, in fact only the stoneware plates she held up against her were wedged between them.
“I thought you might need help reaching them, sorry,” Jack said, but he didn’t move away.
Being this close reminded Maggie how large Jack was compared to her. Not just taller either but broad.
Staring straight at him, she could only see the top button of his police shirt, and his lightly tanned skin in the V of the shirt.
Maggie tipped her head back to see his face. He was staring steadily into her eyes and instead of their usual glacier blue, his eyes were the color of warm tropical waters, which made him appear a little less intimidating. Why had she ever believed that he was intimidating?
Maggie was so caught up in admiring Jack that she almost let the plates slip out of her hands. “No problem. Excuse me.”
Jack stepped back and she placed the plates safely down on the counter.
