Her plan was not over yet just because Edgar realized what she was trying to do. Alessandra knew he was expecting her to be shy just as she was when it came to holding his hand. However, the expression he wore now pushed her to want to thoroughly surprise him. 

Using all the courage she had within her, Alessandra removed her hand from her side and placed it on Edgar's bare chest. She tried not to blush to refrain from showing how such a small action affected her but she had a feeling her body might have betrayed her. 

Edgar's gaze did not leave her and she was sure he was anticipating what else was to come. 

Alessandra tapped her finger against his chest and found it surprising that each time he held her, it felt soft but now it was as hard as a rock. "Are you tense?" She asked.

"No. I am the most relaxed I have been in a while," Edgar replied.
