Zoe emerged from the bathroom a while later, wrapped in her favorite red satin robe, and found Clay fixing himself a sandwich in the kitchen. The overhead lights gleamed on his short, dark hair and outlined the muscular width of his shoulders and upper back that stretched the fabric of his black T-shirt.
He glanced back at her, gave her a small smile but she read him well and could see the tension in his back and shoulders.
She’d hurt him, this proud, strong man, even though she hadn’t meant to. Knowing that sliced her up inside.
Stepping up behind him, she slid her arms around his waist and pressed herself to his broad back. His muscles were taut. “I’m sorry I hurt you.” When he didn’t respond right away she continued. “Do you forgive me?”
He stayed still for a second, then set down the bread and knife and turned to face her. Setting a finger beneath her chin, he tipped her face up and looked into her eyes, the intensity of his gaze making her heart pound. “Yes, I forgive you. Know why? Because I love you. You mean everything to me. Everything, Zo, and…dammit, I thought you knew it.” He shook his head once, his gaze full of frustration. He ran a hand through his hair. “I swore I’d let it go and not say anything else, but the truth is, I can’t stand knowing you’d ever doubt me having your back.”
