“I’m not leaving you,” he said. “However long it takes. I’m very serious about the you and me part.”

 

Dark eyes turned to him, the column of her throat moving as she swallowed hard. “Okay. For you.”

 

“For me?”

 

“Yes.”

 

“Natalie,” he chuckled, taken aback. Probably blushing again. Bloody hell. “I’m honoured. That’s the nicest thing anyone’s ever said to me.”

 

Her sudden smile was brilliant. Breathtaking. God help anything that tried to separate him from her now. Not happening.

 

“I’m not sure I brought enough condoms.”

Today was the day. Everything was quiet below.

 

Eerily so.

 

Natalie peered over the edge of the balcony, her grip on Angus’s hand tightening. She was strangling his fingers, throttling them. Close to snapping them in half. But he didn’t complain. She really didn’t know what she’d done to deserve him.

 

“Ready?” he asked.

 

“You’re sure about this?”

 

He just looked at her. Yes, they had to leave the apartment sooner or later. Turned out she could distract him with sex. She’d done so for a solid five days. Thank God for Angus’s endless supply of condoms. There wasn’t an inch of him she hadn’t climbed all over. And there wasn’t a chance she was going to disappoint him now. They were a pair. A duo. Inseparable. He’d said so, time and again, and she’d long since stopped doubting.

 

Mine.

 

“Tell me again,” she prodded.

 

He tugged on her hand, drawing her back to his side. She went gladly. “I met a guy who said there was a town out west. They managed to get a wall up. He heard them on a CB radio, talking about it. He was heading there straight away but I had to come back for you.”

 

“Right.”

 

“We climb down. Slowly.” His thumb brushed over her knuckles and he brought her hand to his mouth and kissed it. Holding it against his lips. “We head south-west. That’s where they are.”

 

“South-west. Okay.”

 

“We have somewhere safe to go, Nat.”

 

The ocean breeze was ruffling his hair. He was the picture of beachside magnificence. Tall and burnished. Hot. Mine.

 

“I can do this,” she said.

 

“Yes. Of course you can. You can do anything. And I’ll be beside you every step of the way.”

 

She grinned. “Let’s go.”
