I'm sharing a little more from The Dragon's Devotion today. Corentin has arrived at Bastien's house, surprising Bastien when he was seeing someone else out. I went about a sentence over the limit today, I think. Sorry!
“Corentin,” Bastien said. “Come in.”
Corentin wanted to laugh because the question of what he was doing there colored Bastien’s tone more than a little, but he bit back the chuckle and stepped inside.
Bastien closed the door and turned to him. “I wasn’t expecting you.”
“I wanted to see you.”
Bastien drew in a sharp breath, his eyes widening briefly before he pulled himself back under control.
