“Oh, you’re cold!” He grabbed the blanket from beside him. He wrapped it around her, “There we are. Better?”

They glanced at each other in the same moment.
He sighed, “What are we exactly?” It was out there now. From months of holding hands and shy kisses, could they call themselves a couple?

“It’s not that,” Tears pooled, “I’ve never done this, and if you hurt me, I’m done for.”
His face lit up, “So, you do want to be together.”
“I do, but I can’t yet. I just need you to be patient with me.” She wiped the tear away. “Ah, what are you doing to me? I feel like I’m falling for you.”
He stroked her hair and kissed her forehead, “So fall, I’m here to catch you.”
