“At last,” said Vaughn’s deep voice.Joanna was so shocked she flopped down into the nearest chair.“Are you there, Joanna?”She cleared her throat. “Yes, I’m here. What can I do for you?” she asked, politely while her heart raced away like an unstoppable train.“I take it you have fully recovered from the accident?”“Yes. And it’s not necessary for you to continue to call.”“It’s not necessary?”“No. As a matter of fact, I wish you wouldn’t. I think you should forget you ran into me. Forget you saw me.”“But I can’t do that,” came the husky reply. “We’ve been over this already, Joanna. Please have dinner with me this evening.”“Now, why would I do that when I just told you−−−?”“Joanna, I’m picking you up this evening. I’m not playing the waiting game anymore. If you’re not ready when I get there, it will be my pleasure to personally dress you.”Arrogant bastard! “Why don’t you go harass someone else? I’m sure that banker’s daughter wouldn’t mind. Both of you look like a nice little couple in the papers.”“I don’t mess around with married women, which she is now. At the time, I was asked to escort her to the function. Besides, I want to be with you, no one else.”Well, he’d told her he would not waste time, and apparently he’d meant it. He was moving forward with the relationship. Truthfully, she wanted to see him again. They had a lot of unfinished business. Some she couldn’t make go away. Having dinner with him should give her some answers.“Joanna, is eight okay?”“Yes, that will be fine. Where are we going?”“Downtown Newark, to the Neck, to one of the Spanish restaurants. You liked Spanish food, as I recall.”“You remembered,” she stated quietly, blown away that he would remember such a small thing about her after all this time.“There’s very little I don’t remember about you, Joanna. Give my regard to your lovely mother, and I’ll see you at eight.”She replaced the phone in its cradle thoughtfully, a deep frown creasing her brows. There was no going back now. Truth be told, she was excited and was actually looking forward to being with him. There was no denying the fact that nobody else made her heart race with such speed or sing with such joy. The time spent away from him made her body even more responsive to him. She craved his touch and felt so alive when she was with him. She didn’t want to look too deeply into why. She only knew that from the first day they’d met, something special, magical was between them. Apparently that had not changed.As Katherine entered the apartment, she sensed a change, and she looked at Joanna seated on the chair. “Is everything all right, Joanna?” she asked anxiously.“Yes. I’m going to dinner with Vaughn tonight.”“Are you sure this is what you want to do?”Joanna understood this was no ordinary question.Question of the Week
