"Boxer Boy, you don't really have a choice in the matter, you either help me or I squeal about your very illegal activities," I obviously wasn't gonna tell but he didn't know that so I silently prayed he wouldn't call my bluff.
He leaned down so he was eye level with me, he smelt like apples too. "Why do you wanna learn how to fight tigru?"
I tried my hardest not to let my gaze flicker down to his bare chest, but it was right there and very distracting.
He cleared his throat making me shoot my gaze back to him as I hoped my voice didn't come out shaky, "that's my business, just like the reason you fight is yours."
His jaw sharpened as he straightened and seemed to contemplate what his next move would be. I took the time to declutter my thoughts and focus on what I needed from him; fighting lessons, the opportunity to save myself one final time.
