It took some effort, but Grace managed to push aside her embarrassment and approach the coffee table. She shoved a couple of empty beer cans out of the away and perched on the edge facing him. Her attention flickered to the living room window. She briefly considered crashing through the glass to make her escape. "We've known each other a long time. I've been thinking a lot lately about-"
"Stop stalling." He leaned forward, resting his elbows on his knees. He stroked her leg with his fingertips. "Out with it."
Grace blew the hair from her eyes and glanced down at her hands. "The thing is, Tom..."
"I want you to take my virginity."
The sudden silence weighed heavily in the room. Grace held her breath and trained her attention on her fingernails. Now it was out there, there was no taking it back. She waited for him to laugh, to ridicule her, but nothing happened. "You're not saying anything." She glanced up and saw his guarded expression. "Why aren't you saying anything?"
"Jesus, Gracie, I'm in shock." Tom dragged a hand down his face. "You can't just throw it out there like that."
"You told me to!" She pressed her lips together and focused on staying calm. "I just want to get it out of the way. I'm twenty-three years old. I'm sick of having this hanging over my head."
His eyes passed over her. "I'm sure you could find plenty of men willing to help you out with your 'problem'."
"I don't want just any man." Grace chewed her lower lip. She closed her eyes and held her breath for a moment. When her gaze met his again, she found some of her courage had returned. "I want you."
