Vance checked the time on his watch.
"Now we wait," he said, looking over at me in the dimly lit space. He stared at me for a few seconds before he stepped closer, wrapping his hand behind my neck and pulling me to him.
"You really do look amazing tonight," he spoke, his lips brushing my forehead. He ran his hands, down the backless part of my dress, tickling my spine with his light touch. "This dress is positively sinful on you."
"It's a little more daring than I would normally pick out for myself," I admitted to him.
"I know," he replied. "But I like it just the same."
He lowered his lips to my shoulder, placing a tender kiss there, before slipping one of his fingers up under my chin and lifting my lips to his.
"I'm sorry about all the fighting that's been going on between us lately," he said, leaning in to place a light kiss against my mouth. "I know all of this is my fault, and if I could change it, I would. I just want you to know that."
I wrapped my arms around his neck and pulled, hugging him tightly. "Well, we can't change the past, so let's look to fixing our future, shall we?"
"I agree." He kissed me fully then, pushing back against me until I was leaning up against the wall and he against me. He held my face sweetly cradled in his hands and I allowed myself to drown in his masterful touch for those few minutes, until the rattling of the door handle brought us both to full attention.
