Albert knew it looked bad, whatever it turned out to be, but he wasn’t about to say so. The air seemed to go out of the little room. Andersen pressed on. ” Andersen’s eyes were a flat gray-blue and when they met Albert’s, they were cold. “Perry Kogen is a friend of mine. I’ve known him for years. I’ve known you for about ten goddamn seconds. ” “I am,” Albert insisted, cringing at the way his voice cracked. He kept picturing Lily’s empty car. ” He looked around the windowless room, and he was afraid.
His heart fluttered like a bird trapped in his rib cage, but he kept his voice pretty much steady. He wanted to grab her hand, just for an excuse to touch her. Lily’s face was tilted downward and her eyes darted up to Albert’s from under her long eyelashes. When she smiled at him, it was a crooked, sexy smile that caused him actual physical pain when he looked at it too long. From one corner of the room, he couldn’t take his eyes off her—from the hair escaping from her loose ponytail to outline her face in little waves, to her long, pale neck, to her pretty butt rounding out the back of her jeans, to her bare feet with chipping teal paint on the nails.
