That was it: this whole thing between Rob and herself was beyond her control. ’ she announced brightly, at the same time moving away from the warmth of Rob’s arm, smiling up at him as she ignored the look of disappointment in his eyes. ’ She wasn’t one hundred per cent sure about the ‘we’ part of that suggestion, but it was a way of getting them out of the intimate confines of her apartment.
