Damn it anyway, she told herself. Who was Zac Justis to make her feel guilty over a social situation that had been totally beyond her control? She didn’t like the feeling and she didn’t like the fact that Zac could induce it. This relationship she was involved in had to be clarified, and soon. She knew she was glowering as Zac opened the Buick’s door and unceremoniously all but shoved her inside. The others were driving back to the resort in Springer’s car. „It wasn’t my fault, you know,“ she muttered, and immediately resented the fact that she’d felt obliged to defend herself.
This was a new era, she lectured herself. Zac hadn’t invited her to his room, but nothing said she couldn’t invite herself. With a sudden sense of determination she yanked off the nightgown and stepped into her jeans without bothering to put on any underwear. She skipped a bra, too, when she reached for her wide-sleeved, oversize poet’s shirt. She wouldn’t bother with shoes. No one was likely to see her in the hall and even if someone did, the ballet-style slippers she was wearing were fine. Taking a grip on her resolve, Guinevere opened the door to her room, glanced both ways, and started down the empty corridor to Zac’s room.
Thank you,“ she said lamely, aware of Zac’s bleak expression. She turned to him with a deliberately cheerful smile. „Oh, hello, Zac. I didn’t know you’d be able to meet me. “ „I see. “ „I can imagine. You ready to go back to the hotel? “ He wasn’t going to be gracious or understanding about this, apparently. A small flame of resentment started to uncurl within her. Damn it anyway, she told herself. Who was Zac Justis to make her feel guilty over a social situation that had been totally beyond her control?
