Luke's anger flustered Jill. "I want to apologize for that silly business over William. I know what he said sounded awful, but it wasn't exactly true," she explained. Luke yawned. "Just why do you feel this urge to unburden yourself? Frankly I'm not interested." "Luke, please believe-" "Why do women never know when to shut up!" he exclaimed roughly. "So you'd prefer my kisses to William's?" He pulled her to him and kissed her. Jill stayed passive, too shocked to react. "Oh, Luke!" she whispered. "Luke..." When he let her go she was trembling, her heart pounding. She stared at him hopelessly, because it was obvious from his expression that his reaction had been quite different from hers.
