“You should go home and get some rest, Simon. You’re probably burned out, too. I’m sorry for dragging you into my drama.” She started to head for the door and he fell in step beside her.

He shook his head. “You haven’t dragged me into anything. All I want to do is take care of you the way you deserve.”

“I know. And I appreciate that.” She flashed him a faltering smile. “We were supposed to have a talk about our future.”

He stopped at the door and leaned forward to kiss her cheek. “That can wait. We’ll talk about it when you feel stronger.”

Heather opened the door for him and he stepped outside. “We should talk about it now, Simon.”

“Really?” He frowned. “After the long day you’ve had? Are you sure that’s a good idea?”

“I’m sure,” she said, standing on the threshold. “We have to talk about us. Right now.”

“Okay.” Hope flared in his heart. If she was this eager to give them a chance, then he was more than ready to hear her out. They clearly couldn’t just work together. There was something more between them and he wanted to take the next step. Being with Heather was worth whatever came their way. Let the world think they were causing a scandal. Having Heather felt so right that it was worth the risk to him. “Where do things stand between us?”

“Nowhere,” she said before she slammed the door in his face.
