Previously on HFN: Spencer Asks Kate to Lunch
When it was lunch time, Kate walked to Spencer’s area to find him. “Pasta Garden sound good?” He asked, his long legs slowing to match her shorter ones.
“We don’t have to go that fancy,” she replied, looking at him.
“We need someplace quiet.” He stopped walking and stilled his keys.
“We do?” Her heart skipped a beat. She wondered why they needed a quiet place, but she didn’t voice it aloud.
Suddenly it felt like there was a boxing match going on in her stomach. She gulped, trying to remain calm. Spencer beeped the locks to his sedan several feet away and rushed ahead to open the door for Kate. “Spence,” she started to protest. She used his shortened name, but in frustration, not friendliness this time.
“Kate.” Spencer looked down on her, a serious expression on his face.
“You don’t need to open my door,” she finished.
“I don’t mind, ladies first and all that.” He swept his arm toward the car.
“You’re quite the gentleman, as usual.”
“I try.” He waited for her to get in and shut the door.
