"His gaze narrowed and she could see his hands twitching again like he'd love nothing more than to throttle her. She was beginning to think it was an affliction of his.

Or she was pulling someone's hair. And a part of you was drawn to her, and a part of you resisted-wanting to ride off on your bicycle, kick a stone, remain uncomplicated.
