Faith dropped the paper and walked him to the front door. As they passed the couch, she tucked the blanket around Lacey’s shoulders. Brushed a lock of hair from her son’s forehead. The gesture zinged around his chest. Roan would get a chance to do the same thing once his girls were home for good.
When they arrived at the door she said, “Maybe I can repay you by having you and the girls over for chili night.”
Getting tangled up with Faith and her family was not on his agenda right now. He had to focus on the girls, and honestly, he didn’t want the emotional upheaval of a rushed relationship.
He could kick himself for his quick refusal when he spied the hurt in her eyes. Maybe they could just be good neighbors for now. “But we’ll take you up on that offer.”
She smiled and his chest squeezed.
When she opened the door, the wind swirled in, bringing with it dead leaves and a blast of cold. The air held a damp scent he always associated with winter.
He stepped onto the porch and tugged his collar closer around his neck.
“So we’ll touch base about getting together. I mean having kids together.” She cleared her throat. Red stained her cheeks. “Having the kids get together.”
He bit back a grin. “They’d love it.”
He really should get going but made no attempt to move. Until Faith wrapped her arms around herself as the cold air breached the house.
“Thanks again,” she said.
He nodded, jogged down the steps and trekked across the stiff grass to his dark house. All the way he felt Faith’s gaze on his back. When he finally reached the driveway, he turned, but she’d gone back inside. The outside light flicked off.
His breath escaped with a whoosh, misting the air before him. Looked like having Faith Harper for a neighbor was going to be more than he bargained for.
