Book Description"Just like... professional, right? You don't get off when carrying wounded women around the city, do you?"
She rolled her eyes. "I swear, you don't know the simplest things. All right, fine. For the sake of my sister, you can carry me. But you better not be enjoying it."

Unintentionally, he smiled at her question. He couldn't think of a way to explain it without being more awkward than this already was, so instead he moved to close the distance between them until the arm he had stretched went behind her back along her shoulder blades. From there, he bent enough so his other arm could go behind her knees, and then he straightened, turning her in his arms as he went until he was cradling her against his chest.
