Excerpt “Lucky Break” by Aria Kane from One Lucky Night: 

Andrea loosed a short, nervous laugh. “Where exactly are you taking me, Derek?

“To the water heater.”

“Down the long, poorly-lit passageway during a dark and stormy night? Really?” She tried to make the words light and joking, but Derek heard the apprehension in her voice. “I’m having flashbacks to your little pranks when we were in high school.”

“I only pulled crap like that to get your attention.” The words were out of his mouth before he could stop them. He pretended not to notice when she missed a step. When her feet shuffled on the dusty concrete floor, he reached back to take her hand, then thought better of it. Clearing his throat, he said,

“It’s just past this pile.”

They passed haphazard stacks of extra furniture and equipment casting long shadows on the brick walls. They only pulled this stuff out on crazy busy nights. It was a real pain to move it past all the other things without knocking everything over, but it was only needed during Saint Patrick’s Day and maybe one or two other local Irish festivals throughout the year.

He stopped in front of the heater and Andrea pulled up next to him. She crossed her arms across her chest, drawing his gaze again for a second before he caught himself.

“I should get hazard pay for this,” she said.

Derek shrugged and met her sideways glare. “That’s between you and Eliza.”

“Well,” she said, pushing her sleeves up her arm, “I’m going to need better light.”

She sauntered up to him and put a finger in the middle of his chest. Her smirk set fire to the air around them. “Can you do that, or do you need to call Eliza?”
