“You were planning on leaving without even giving me a kiss?”
Taryn shrugged and let a coy smile develop on her lips. “That was the plan,” she teased.
“Well, I guess I’m just going to have to keep surprising you when you try to leave. I can’t have my mate leave me with nothing for me to remember her by.” His playful eyes sparkled.
Her heartbeat picked up, but she ignored it. “Maybe I will just have to get better at being sneakier.”
Declan’s lips curled up. “Challenge accepted. But for now, I’ll be needing that kiss.”
Taryn rolled her eyes and went to peck him on the cheek.
He had already anticipated that.
Declan caught her lips with his right before she made it to his cheek. Taryn was surprised but didn’t pull away. The kiss was intense, and a surge of emotions crashed into her, nearly knocking her off her feet.
