Similar bruises marred her upper arms and legs. Embarrassed, she sought to stop Evan’s examination by turning away. He held her, murmuring in a hushed, soothing tone as he traced the livid marks with the tips of his fingers. His face shuttered. He swung his long legs over the edge of the bed and sat up, facing away from her. He ran his hand through his hair as he stared at the wall. The intimacy had been shattered.
