Hayden rolled carefully onto his side to face me, his shoulder nearly brushing the roof. ‘Horny?’
I shrugged, thinking that my words had run away with me. ‘Perceived peril makes people more aroused. It’s freshman psychology.’
He raised his eyebrows. ‘Well thank God it’s not just me then.’
I laughed, mostly from tension, and he chuckled with me.
‘So … Did it make you horny, working down here?’ he wondered.
I blushed and ran my tongue across my lips. ‘Sometimes.’ My voice sounded weak. ‘It’s the silence…’
‘Did you ever do anything about it?’
Those eyes would not let me go. I bit my lip and nodded.
