“Give me that!” Han said, abruptly taking the glass from Erich. “They’re your sisters. You can’t expect to fall in love with one of your sisters.”
“What is he talking about?” Maggie asked her brother.
“After a man drinks that stuff, he’s supposed to fall in love with the first woman he sees.”
“Baggage!” Maggie uttered.
They all became silent as Han took a big swallow of the golden liquid and did an exact imitation of the reactions Erich had performed. When he opened his eyes they were set on Maggie. He seemed quite stunned and overwrought with emotion.
“What do you feel?” Erich asked with intense anticipation.
“Erich,” Han whispered, “I never realized your sister was so beautiful.” Erich chuckled with satisfaction as Maggie’s eyes widened and she backed away. “She’s like an angel. I feel all tingly . . . and oh, Maggie!”
Han deftly swept her into his arms, and despite her efforts to get away, he held her to his advantage.
“Let go of me!” Maggie shrieked, barely aware that Erich and Sonia were laughing intolerably. She didn’t find it funny at all!
“Don’t speak to me that way, my love. Oh, Maggie . . . say you’ll be mine. I need you in my life.”
“You are mad! This is baggage!”
“How can you say such things?” Han looked genuinely hurt. “Can’t you see how much I love you?”
“Erich! Get him away from me!”
“But he’s in love,” Erich laughed. “You can’t blame a man for being in love.”
“Ooh!” Maggie hissed, but Han pressed his mouth over hers with a kiss that forced her into momentary silence.
“Let go of me!” she shouted louder when he set her lips free.
“One more kiss, my love,” he whispered, then overcame her with a kiss more passionate than the first.
Maggie forced back the memories stirred by his kiss and finally managed to turn her face away. Han chuckled, but she briefly caught something severe in his eyes that left her uneasy. “You’d better give her some of that stuff, Erich,” he said. “She could really use some. She’ll be betrothed soon and needs a little romance before the dreaded thing takes place and it’s too late.”
Maggie wanted to retort that she was in love and there would be no betrothal. But she bit her tongue, remembering her father’s admonition to keep it a secret.
