Heku : Book 1 of the Heku Series
“I’m cold.” She tried again, but he held the covers tightly.
“No you aren’t, you are hiding.” He kissed a line from her shoulder up her neck, “Now go back to sleep
and this time… ignore what Keith was telling you.”
“You talk in your sleep.” He could feel the warmth from her blush and smiled.
She rolled onto her side away from him and glanced at the clock Kyle put in for her, it was almost 3am.
She decided to stay awake and watch for 7am, but soon her eyes began to feel heavy and she was
comfortable with him pressed against her back with his arms around her.
“Good Morning,” he whispered, kissing the tip of her nose.
She glanced at him. He was on top of the covers and fully dressed, smiling down at her. She could feel
the blush rising to her cheeks, and she pulled the covers tighter around her.
Chevalier chuckled, “Gordon is almost here with your breakfast.”
Her eyes widened, “No! He can’t come in here.”
“Chevalier, stop him, please, don’t let him in here!” The panic in her voice stopped his laugh and he got
up to talk to Gordon in the ante-chamber. Emily took the opportunity to run for the bathroom, taking the
bed sheets with her as a cover.
Chevalier entered the bathroom just as Emily was pulling on a robe and cinching it tightly around her
“What was that about?” he asked, watching her.
“What was what?” She turned to look at him.
