Jaynee questions Jordan wanting to take her salsa dancing. He immediately responds to her comment as though she thinks he's just a dumb country boy, and he assures her he isn't.
He flashed a wicked smile, wiggling his eyebrows at her as he shifted the car into drive.
“What in the world type of dancing are you planning, Jordan?” she asked.
He glanced in the rearview mirror then back at her. “Salsa…” His tone was seductive as he enunciated the word.
“You, Salsa dance?”
He huffed at her reaction. “Baby…it’s not my fault you think I’m a dumb country boy because of my accent, which by the way I can suppress if I want.” He did so instantaneously, demonstrating his ability.
She started at the endearment “baby” but addressed his accusation first. “I have never thought you a ‘dumb country boy’, Jordan. Country, yes, but never dumb!” Her face flushed with anger that he would even imply such a thing.
He reached across the seat and stroked her arm. “I know, darling. I didn’t mean you literally thought I was dumb.” He sighed. “I’ve just been accustomed to people making assumptions about my heritage and intellect my entire life.” His accent was back to normal; she liked it better that way. “My parents were from North Carolina, and as you know, my sisters and I spent all our summers with my grandparents there, so I did pick up the accent. But I’ve traveled all over the world and lived in many different cultures with my parents and then again on my own in the military. I enjoy every variety of music imaginable and think a good night out doesn’t just consist of getting drunk and going muddin’. Although, the muddin’ part can be fun.” He pulled her hand to his lips. “So what do you say…wanna go dancing with me tonight?”
Her heart fluttered at the feel of his lips on her hand. “I say ‘yes’, and I love your accent, Jordan. Don’t turn it off again, please.”
“Anything you say, love.” And he drew out the words even slower in that seductive southern drawl, sending chills down her spine.
