Maddie climbed the steps to her apartment Sunday afternoon, her body weary but mind a whirlwind of thoughts. Today was Cole’s first day off from kitchen duty since he’d started, and she’d really looked forward to having the kitchen all to herself again. It’d always been her safe haven, a fortress where she could keep her mind busy and heart safe from harm. Working alongside scrumptious Cole, though, had rattled her more than she cared to admit. So a day with the space all to herself had sounded like a wonderful thing.
Until she walked into the inn’s silent kitchen this morning, that is. She’d sauntered in, put her things away, and pulled on a fresh apron just like every other morning. And yet something felt off. It wasn’t until Cole popped his head through the swinging doors “just to say hi” on his way to play guitar for the inn’s Sunday service that she identified what that “off” was:
It was him.
Or, rather, today’s lack thereof.
Which was stupid, of course. He’d never even worked the breakfast or lunch shifts with her. In fact, most days he didn’t stroll in until around three forty-five. But for some unknown reason, the idea of him not being there this evening had left her feeling a bit blue.
She shoved the key into her apartment’s doorknob, jiggled it a bit to coax the lock to cooperate, then twisted hard left and shouldered the creaky beast open. There was no way she was going to let herself go and get attached to Cole Granville, not now and not ever. He was too smooth, too handsome, and had a background she knew next to nothing about.
But darn it if his smile today hadn’t triggered an unprompted smile of her own.
