We stood there facing each other, smiling. Me, like a foolish school girl and him knowing what I was thinking; knowing what I wanted.
He raised his hand to my cheek and tucked a wisp of hair behind my ear. I literally gasped and jilted forward ever so slightly.
Then we looked at each other and I giggled; feeling caught. He laughed sympathetically.
"Well, I guess everything is working correctly," he teased.
"Yes," I replied, feeling suddenly coy. "I guess I just got a little excited."
"I guess so," he teased some more.
"You took me by surprise, that's all," I explained.
"Oh, I'm sorry," he offered. "I'll try not to do that anymore."
"No," I protested, attempting my best efforts at puppy-dog eyes. "You can do that as often as you like."
"Oh yeah?" he asked, chuckling, this time tucking away the hair behind my other ear.
"Yes," I stated while biting my lip a little, trying to hide a smile. "Anytime. Actually, every time."
"Every time?" he asked in a teasing manner.
"Well...okay," I stammered, feeling my cheeks blush. "Maybe not every time. After all, I might get bored."
At that he looked at me smiling, trying to contain his laughter. I knew that he knew that was a lie.
I shook my head and through my laughter corrected, "I won't get bored..."
"I didn't think so," he concurred.
And that is what I leave with you today... hehehe....
