And we both know that I’m the only one you’re going to listen without first debating the subject for at least an hour.” He put one arm on top of the open car door and the other on the roof next to her shoulder, boxing her in.

Pure, determined energy radiated off of him, as though any moment now someone would throw open the cage door and he’d pounce. And she was pretty sure she knew which one of them would end up on top.
