Katherine tried to stave off the heat pooling in her stomach as it spread into the rest of her body, reaching her head and telling her to linger for more time with each kiss she gave to Eward. It fought everything her mind told her to do, which was to fulfill the requirements of her debt to him and know that her secret was safe, then forget that this ever even happened. But when he grabbed her, rather forcefully this time, and Katherine stumbled into his fierce embrace, his lips crashing onto hers, her resolve became questionable.
Her heart was practically beating out of her chest and her entire body felt hot, both from never having truly cooled off from being free of the cloak and from Eward's strong, larger form pressed against it. She'd tried to ignore the fact that his chest was bare and it was skin she touched, not clothing, but his insistence on having her closer made it hard to avoid. After a distinctly longer period of time this round, Katherine pulled herself away from his lips, and them only, before pressing in for the penultimate payment of her debt, her knees shaking.
