Nicholas' eyebrows shot up. "Do I intimidate you, Langston?"
Langston nodded softly. "Yes, a little."
He didn't want to intimidate her. He has had that problem for quite a while where people would cower away in his presence. He wasn't the type to threaten people but he always got things running smoothly. He was quite used to people moving out of his way or calling him a shadow but he didn't want it from Langston. He wanted her to be herself in front of him and not care even if she offended him because by far she was the most honest person he knew. She intrigued him and he wanted to know more about her.
"Well." He sighed as he crossed the room and went to lean on the glass doors that lead to the terrace and the private pool where he loved spending his weekend. "We'll work on that with time."
Langston's laughter surprised him. She looked up at him from her food with amusement glittering in her enchanting eyes. "You sound as if this is a long-term thing."
Nicholas tilted his head to the side and regarded her intently. He watched as color drained from her face and her eyes widened and her mouth fell open. "I want to keep you, Langston."
"Keep me?" She echoed as her eyes darkened. "You want to keep me?"
"Yes I want to try the dating thing." he shrugged.
The look on Langston's face was epic it had Nicholas a little unsettled. Did he say something wrong? How did someone ask for a long-term relationship? He hoped there were no contracts to sign as one of his bed-mates had once made him sign. He didn't want to go down that road. All he could conclude about his agreement with Valentina was that it was never going to work out.
"Oh." Langston suddenly jerked back then frowned lightly. "Well, I'm not ready for a relationship." It looked as if she remembered something disturbing.
He didn't want to make her uncomfortable so he sighed and said. "Okay, let's just hang out then."
Again, Langston laughed lightly. He loved the sound of her laughter even though it made him slightly self-conscious because it was at his expense. Saying such words to a woman were so out of his character but he didn't want to lose her.
"And I never take no for an answer." He assured her before she answered.
