Welcome to Tuesday ... Welcome to Tuesday Tales ...
I continue with Rachel's story. I introduced her in "I think I love you", the third book in the "Australian Sports Stars Series". She's Sarah's sister.
When Rachel opens the door and finds the police standing in front of her door, she's scared of a repeat of the day she was dragged to the police station. Yet, the two officers only want information and ask her to stop by later that day. Worried, she calls Oliver, a good friend, but instead gets Matiu Afoa on the phone. Matiu is Oliver's Kiwi friend staying with him for a week. He's in Melbourne for a meeting.

It took all his courage, but he leaned in and gently touched her lips with his. Her soft breath touching his skin teasing his sanity. The taste of coke still lingered on her lips, and he was tempted to kiss her with all he had and all he felt at that moment. Even after sitting in the pizzeria for a couple of hours, she smelled like the ocean and earth blended. Images of the blue sea and the pacific ocean coastline shot through igniting feelings that had been dormant for too long. An undercurrent of attraction making him aware of how much he’d enjoyed their time together and how much he disliked to let her go already. He leaned back to meet her gaze and although pleased, it surprised him that she didn't move back or slapped his cheek. Unsure about the expression on her face, he was sure, though, there has no anger but a hesitant smile that spread across her face.
"Can't wait to see you again tomorrow.”
Her cheeks turned a soft shade of red.
"Will you be all right?” he asked.
Her eyes widened. "Because I've been kissed by a stranger?”
Not able to hold back, he let out a bark of laughter. "I’m good, but even I know a touch of my lips is nothing that moves the earth.” He paused watching her expression. "I meant in regards to what happened this morning.”
The long sigh she let out almost told the whole story and he wished instead of bringing it up he had kissed her again.
"Someone died under suspicious circumstances and the police came to see me this morning. I freaked out.”
