When I got home I saw that Parker and Matt were outside working under the hood of his Mustang. I went around to the back of my car to get my grocery bags out and waved over to the guys. Parker waved back and by the time I looked up from getting my first batch of groceries, he was jogging over to me.
“Need some help?”“That would be great, thanks. I usually pile enough bags on my arms to make them feel like they’re going to fall off.”We both carried the bags into the house and laid them on the kitchen counter. When all the bags were on the counter, Parker started taking everything out and setting it on the counter. I noticed he was separating the food into groups based on where it belonged. I stood with the fridge open and smiled, thinking to myself how natural it felt to have him standing here helping me unload groceries. He turned around with the milk and the eggs and realized I was watching him.“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to intrude. I didn’t even think before I started helping you unload this stuff.”“No that’s okay,” I moved out from in front of the fridge so he could put the stuff in there, “I was just thinking how nice it was to have someone in the kitchen with me; someone helping me.”“Did your ex-husband not help you? A woman should never have to bring in her own groceries if she’s got a man around.” He turned around to grab the rest of the fruits and vegetables I bought and I cringed at the mention of Brent.“No, not very often. He was either busy or not speaking to me.” I leaned up against the back of the counter and hoped this conversation wouldn’t go much farther; I didn’t want to ruin this by talking about Brent.
“That’s too bad,” he put the last of the food in the fridge and shut the door, brushing his arm against mine when he closed it, “his loss for sure.” His lips turned up a little bit and it was just Parker’s way of flirting with me subtly. “I’ll be at Matt’s if you need a big, strong man to help you with anything else.” He winked at me, walked out of the kitchen and out the front door. How did he do that? He managed to waltz into my life and leave me reeling. By looking at him, you’d never know he was nervous or unsure around me. I wonder if he knew what he was doing to me.
