“I can probably pull your car out of the ditch when the snow stops,” he offers, her hopes soaring with promise for the briefest of moments before they come plummeting down when he adds: “But you aren’t getting through either way for a few days. There’s at least seven inches over the roads right now.”
Her mouth parts in quiet dismay. “What does that—what does that mean?”

“Stay here?” She swallows. “With you?”
He jerks his head to a door behind him. “Bathroom’s that way.”
In which despite being snowed in, things are about to get very heated for Rey and Ben.
