She'd come straight from a renovation site, disheveled and dirty to the Food Mart for a few groceries.
Reaching for the last loaf of bread on the rack, her fingers brushed across the hand of a man. When their fingers touched, a jolt of awareness snaked along her arm and she'd looked up. Slack jawed, she'd stood gawking like some pre-pubescent schoolgirl with her first crush, into a pair of steel grey eyes.
He'd flashed a smile, which further weakened already rubbery legs, released the loaf of bread and moved on down the aisle. It had taken her a few moments to realize the hulking hunk was her neighbour.
