He grinned, toying with the fringe of his bangs. “All you had to do was ask.” He tossed her a wink.
[OH MY GOD HE HEARD THAT]
"Ah, relax, Fräulein Hattie." His grin turned into a softer, more genuine smile. "I do mean that, though; you only needed to ask. If there’s anything you need, I’d be more than happy to oblige."
Hattie stammers and shuffles her feet. It was no secret, at least to her, that Klavier was drop dead gorgeous….but she was sure he was only teasing her. No one as pretty as him would be interested in a jumpy, dumpy fangirl like her…..would he?
"t-t-t-thank you….m-m-mr Gavin…I….I am f-f-flattered that you would consider my feelings…." she mumbles, certain that at any moment he’d start laughing.
He smiled, letting a small puff of breath out through his nose. “Any time.” He stuck his hands in his back pockets, rocking on his heels.
"Hey… would you mind terribly if I asked you to accompany me for coffee later today? Maybe grab something to eat, too?"
