After the kiss they shared in the movie theater Jordan couldn't stop thinking about Rafe Hernandez. She didn't think it was possible for her to think about him anymore than she already did but she had been wrong. When the kiss intensified she had quickly pulled away, "We can't."
"Because..." She started to protest but she knew that she had wanted him to kiss her she had wanted it for a while now. Wondered what it would be like and it was so much better than she had imagined.
"You kissed me back." He said with a grin.
"I know but Rafe, this is wrong. Your my patient and..."
"You my therapist, I know but who cares." He said reaching for her hand.
"I care. This is my career we're talking about here and I don't want to be seen as unprofessional."
"No one would ever think that. Jordan you work harder and take your job more seriously than anyone I have ever met. You help people more than you know and I know cause I'm one of them, without you I would probably never walk again."
"That's not true you've been doing all the work." Without warning he leaned in and pressed his lips to hers.
"I'll need the number of a new therapist." He said when he pulled away to look at her.
"What you don't want to work with me anymore?" She asked looking a little shocked.
"No I would love to continue working with you but I would much rather be dating you."
"You would?" She asked finally understand what he meant.
"Yes." He told her leaning over to wrap his arm around her shoulders.
"Excuse me but the next show is about to start, you'll need to clear out." A teenager said tapping her on the shoulder. They both laughed as they realized that the entire theater was empty.
"We better get outta here." She said grabbing her coat and purse and picking up the empty cup. She slung her purse over her shoulder as she made her way put of the aisle and Rafe followed.
Once they reached the lobby she tossed the cups in the trash and turned to him, "Why don't we go get something to eat at the Brady Pub?" He suggested not wanting the night to end so soon.
"Sure that sounds great." She said as they made their way to the van. She was nervous and she couldn't help but wonder if this was a good idea. Sure she liked Rafe but she didn't have a very good reputation with men and she didn't think she could take being hurt again.
