"Oh, Jeb," she breathed against his wet neck. "I don't want this to end. Not yet." She nibbled at his ear.
"Remember me, baby. Remember this. Don't forget."
There was tense yearning to his voice. She cupped his face and looked him straight in the eye. "Jebediah Holliday, you promise me."
He brushed her damp hair away from her face. "What, darlin'?"

"Trudy, don't do this. You know I'm coming home. We'll be fine."

He stroked her back. "Tru, I promise, okay? I promise you, I'll come back."
