A/N: Betaread by Fanwoman.
He loves it when she reaches out to him, but he's wary of it. Every slight touch feels electric to him, making him crave more contact. It's good it only happens every now and then. He's better off because he's not quite so distracted by her if there's a little distance, and that way, he’s still able to converse intelligently with her 99% of the time. But he still longs for and cherishes every touch, like steps along their way to something more than what they currently have. That's partly why he tests the limits of her personal space, having found out she doesn't seem much concerned by him getting right up close to her physically, unlike her reactions to any unexpected brushes of hands.
Him being near her isn't an issue, and that, in itself, thrills him. Any time Tom moves too close, he sees her casually move away until she's comfortable, but she never does that with him. He doesn't have to touch her to know he affects her; it's like there's something between them that can be felt without a connection. The possibility of a real connection sometimes scares him, of wanting something that badly, and as much as he likes to reach out to her, he tries not to do so unnecessarily. He’s only willing to push their progress so far. The ball is in her court; Diana sets the pace.
