Because she’d been out of the country she’s never seen the show. It has been years since he had met a woman who has absolutely no idea who he was. He liked it. A lot.
He liked that she seemed to want to get to know him. That she asks questions and actually listens to the answers. She doesn’t presume to know him because she’d seen edited clips of his life on television. To her, he was a blank slate.
She seemed to like talking to him. She laughs at his jokes. She’s comfortable with quiet. But she doesn’t like it when he is too focused on her. When he flirted. And since their kiss, she’d been very careful not to get too close or to be alone with him too long.
Ash is infuriatingly, intriguingly, attractively… skittish.
