Remember when we were dating, and you told me we should take a break for a while? she said.
<His warning bells went off. –Dangerous territory. Dangerous territory–>
Yes, he gulped, you were cool about it.
Not really, she admitted. I felt like my heart was hanging by a thread.
So why did you act so blasé ? He was curious now.
I didn’t want to admit how vulnerable I felt, in case you didn’t feel as strongly about our relationship. So why did you want to take a break, anyway? Once again, her tone sounded blasé, but he was lucky enough to notice a glistening around her eyes.
My feelings were so overwhelming, it scared me. He glanced up, hoping she wouldn’t think the truth sounded pathetically needy.
She smashed her lips against his.
