The study room was located in the far back corner of the library's third floor. It was set apart from the other rooms and individual carrels by several high stacks of case books and a couple of unused offices. It also had a screen that could be pulled down over the little window on the door for privacy. When he shut the door, Edward pulled the screen. He also locked the door, ensuring that their studying would not be disturbed.The room was only big enough to hold a tiny wooden table and three chairs. Edward sat in the chair right next to Carla. His proximity caused her sex to moisten.When he opened his book, his arm brushed gently against hers. Edward's touch was like cold fire, burning her skin. Her body reacted instantly to the feel of his smooth, well-toned forearm. She trembled."Are you cold?" He reached over and put his arm around her.What the hell was he doing? There was no way Carla could concentrate on contracts now. The words on the page in front of her danced then blurred. All she could think about was the heat generated by his skin against hers. And the way his hand rested gently on her shoulder. She trembled again."Here let me warm you up. They keep the air so damn cold in this library." He rubbed his hand up and down her arm. It was an action meant to warm her, but all it did was make the butterflies in her stomach do somersaults. Even though she wasn't cold, goose flesh pricked her skin at his touch."I'm okay, Edward." She meant for her voice to sound thankful for his friendly gesture. Instead, it came out husky, filled with need.
