Eternal Curse: Giovanni’s Angel chapter 5
As she stepped out onto the deck, there stood Giovanni looking taller and grander than he had the day before. He was holding out a steaming mug towards her with a handsomely subtle smirk on his face. “Warm green tea cocoa for you?” he asked, placing the warm mug in her hand. Giovanni tried to shield the warmth of the mug and the touch of his hand with a thin cloth beneath it, but he still managed to send yet another jolt of energy through her body, as he brushed the edge of her finger.
“Green tea cocoa,” Mira inquired with a giggle, “how does that work exactly?”
“Just try it,” replied Giovanni. “It’s very chocolaty and amazingly refreshing and rejuvenating.” Mira took a sip and smiled, it was truly delicious. The steamy chocolate mixture soothed her throat, warmed her tummy, and perked up all her senses.
