Leo saw Audrey on T-court before she could see him, and she’d never looked prettier.
She’d pulled her thick auburn hair up high in a ponytail, and a sleeveless white shirt accentuated the soft curve of her breasts and hard definition of her arms.

“I missed you even more than that!”
“Good to know you’re still competitive.” He smirked, holding her face next to his, cheek to cheek. Eventually Leo let go to greet his other visitors.
