Silence rushed to fill the space between them. Desperate to keep the conversation moving, Carlie jerked her chin in the direction of the chandelier. “I love how big that is.”
“Really?” Nick lifted one eyebrow and his lips quirked at the corners. “I’ve heard size is important.”
Embarrassment burned all the way up her neck and face. “I meant the chandelier. I wasn’t saying…” Holy crap. She was supposed to flirt. Another woman would have come up with a witty comeback, but Carlie had nothing.
He laughed and reached across the table, patting her hand. “Relax. I figured that’s what you meant. Just trying to lighten the mood.”
“I’m sorry. I don’t mean to be so nervous.”
“It’s okay, but you really don’t need to be. I don’t bite. Well,” he glanced at the tablecloth briefly before looking at her again, heat in his gaze, “not on the first date.”
“I…you…” Carlie gasped for a few seconds and then sighed. Shelley would be so disappointed in her. “I’m not good at this.”
“You’re not trying to tell me you don’t date much, are you?”
“Well, actually, I don’t.” She took a sip of water. The truth was the wrong path to take here. Guys wanted worldly, experienced girls who knew how to have a good time.
She winked at him, hoping it didn’t look like she had something in her eye. “At least, not men as sexy as you.”
He winked back. “And big, don’t forget big.”
