How would he feel if she married him and he got her entangled in his family’s scandal?- if it ever became common knowledge. Never, he would never do that to her. So he had to make sure he never kissed her again. Because the feel of her against him was like nothing he had ever known. And it wasn’t the long forgotten feeling of a woman pressed against him- it was her. It had always been her. He felt her very presence down to the depths of his soul and knew that if he ever had the misfortune to know her intimately he would lose his soul forever.
