Julianna felt heat rush to her cheeks as he stammered about her looking good, still feeling uncomfortable in her attire. It wasn't her style, or at least not what she was used to. So much skin was showing that she felt naked even in the yards of fabric. It was when William closed the distance between them that her heart seemed to thud all the harder in her chest. He was so close, his fingers working to tighten the strings of her vest before then tucking a piece of hair behind her ear. His blue eyes seemed to capture and hold her brown ones, her mind in a muddle at being so close to the man.
When he separated from her, Julianna felt confusion at her emotions. Her heart was beating rapidly and she felt as if her whole body was lit with the heat of her blush. But, why? She hardly knew this man. A small thing her mother used to drill to her was that something new was often exciting but one should always be cautious. Jullianna determined that this must be what was happening. William O'Reilly was new to her, attractive and mischievous, in all honesty. Not to mention that he crossed lines that many noble men would not. That must be why her emotions and reactions were all over the place when she was usually poised and elegant, as she was taught.
When he spoke of leaving, Julianna nodded her head and shuffled towards the door. "Yes, I suppose we should," she said quickly, peeking out slightly as if looking for Scheana, though simply just making excuses not to look towards William once more. She was afraid of what her features may reveal. "Best she doesn't find us with her claws, right?" However, Julianna was sure that this wouldn't go as William planned. While she hadn't made her mind up definitely, she was sure that she would end up staying. I'll wait to see the port we'll be at. Then I'll know for sure...
