“Please, don’t leave me.”
Bastian’s heart ached at the desperate expression on the man’s face.
“Gavin, start it up. I’m staying in,” Bastian ordered and knew even as he said the words he would get his ass chewed out. Remaining in the vehicle was against protocol. The crew couldn’t be sure what the car would do when put under the pressure of being separated. It might crush in and Bastian could be injured as well. But he couldn’t make himself go.
Cooper’s eyes bored into his, filled with terror. Bastian reached out with his other hand and traced along Cooper’s cheekbone. “Just keep looking at me.”
