“I’ll hire you, but I need you to start before your kids go back to school. At least a few hours a week, until you learn the system.” He named the starting salary. “I’m sure you were making more in Detroit?”
Chase didn’t say anything. Was he moving too fast? He had met up with Brooke one week ago. He had called her two days later to ask her on a date. Dinner last night, donuts this morning? Maybe he should slow down. But when he pictured the warmth in her smile and the light in her eyes that seemed to reflect his own interest, he was sure that he was on the right track.
His question caught her off-guard. She tried to think of something to say that wouldn’t give away her feelings but came up with nothing. Chase Reed was flirting with her.
But that was the purpose of the date, right? To get to know her. She fascinated him, and he was looking forward to learning more about her.
“I enjoyed our conversation.” And the dance, and the coffee, he wanted to add, but left that out. He would tell her that when he could see her face and gauge her reaction.
