READ The Orchard on #TantalizingTuesday

Carter chased Janie through the orchard, the same route they ran as children a million times. Except they weren’t kids anymore. Still, how could she resist this playful side of Carter? How could she not allow him to catch her, spin her, and pull her to the ground?

The only sound was the leaves crunching beneath them as they lay on the ground under an apple tree. Janie ran her fingers through his short hair, using her hand to pull him in for a kiss. Carter looked down at her, paused when his lips were a breath away, and smiled. His eyes gleamed with mischief as his fingers stroked Janie's long locks.

She couldn’t read his expression, and the worry she was holding inside bubbled up. Janie had never kept a secret from Carter. Could he know she was hiding something?

"Why are you smiling at me like that?"

Carter rubbed his nose along her nose as he answered, "Because I know."

Furrowing her brow, Janie tentatively smiled back at Carter. "And you're smiling about it? It's not too soon?" She couldn't hold back the concern that laced her words.

Carter shook his head and touched his lips to hers.
