"One for the road," Cathal said softly, agreeing with her as he leaned back in. This time he let the kiss linger and his hand moved to her cheek, but there was nothing forceful about it. She was just as nice to kiss in the light of day as she had been by firelight.
When he drew back it was with a smile. "Will you tell your da I had to go?" he asked. "I've got to go get ready for a date."
(Although Marco and Celeste had both tried setting him up with people they knew, Cathal didn't know if they were going to feel the same way about their own little girl seeing him.)
