How much

October 4, 2012

Did you expect someone? he asked. Or did you expect me in particular?

She thought about the way, sometimes, he tasted like moonlight when he kissed her. She considered his laugh, and how thinking about him, even when she happened to be in a drab conference room, made the edges of everything sparkle.

How could I have expected any of this? she said. If I’d known it was coming, I’d never have been able to be so delighted.

He took her hand, then. Next, he kissed her. He feared saying aloud how much she made his world sparkle, too.
