He cocked his head and finally smiled back. “I need to go out, see if I can’t receive a transmission with some further information.”

She tried not to look scared, he saw that clearly. She’d been so strong that whole day, even reminding him earlier about how everyone in the Imperium would have been afraid at the sight of troops.

He touched her cheek, rewarded by the smooth satin of her skin. Her pupils widened and her breath caught. He needed to stop touching her, but he didn’t plan to start right then. “I won’t be far. You’re safe here. Only I or someone with the right instructions and codes can get this far. I’ll be back before you finish with the food.” His voice was husky, even to his own ears and she smelled so good he had to fight against the urge to lean in and sniff.

Then she said, “I trust you with my life, Daniel.” And he lost his footing entirely, leaning down to kiss her forehead before he’d even really thought about it.

But she hugged him, holding him tight and he let go of all the supposed to bes and the should haves and instead, hugged her back. “We’re going to be all right, Carina.”

She squeezed him one more time and stepped back, blushing furiously even as her gaze was locked on him. “Go on and hurry back so things won’t get cold. I saw some dried meat and vegetables. I’m sure I can make something for us.”

Her forced cheer only made him want to gather her to his body and make it all better. Instead, he turned and headed not toward the door they came through, but another entrance at the side, through a closet.
